Waiting On Wednesday

You don't even know how happy I was when gained knowledge of this book's existence (there was lots and lots of yay and some 'gimme' and some other things that make me sound too dorky to tell you about).

Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Amy Goodnight's family is far from normal. She comes from a line of witches, but tries her best to stay far outside the family business. Her summer gig? Ranch-sitting for her aunt with her wacky but beautiful sister. Only the Goodnight Ranch is even less normal than it normally is. Bodies are being discovered, a ghost is on the prowl, and everywhere she turns, the hot neighbor cowboy is in her face. (via Goodreads)
I've just been waiting for a cover to make this my Waiting On Wednesday book--and now that I found one, here it is!!!

I loved, loved The Splendor Falls (my review)--it's one of those books with characters and a plot that I still think about a lot (like when I do any sort of ballet stretches ;)) and I've been rather impatiently awaiting a new book from Ms. Clement-Moore.

Texas Gothic is a different book than The Splendor Falls, obviously, but I love that it, too, is set in the South and involves both family (and their relationships) and the supernatural! And hot cowboys are never bad, are they? Plus, I really want to read another book with ghosts in it--there aren't enough of those lately, I don't think.

Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore isn't out until July 12, 2011 (from Delacorte Books for Young Readers) and I'm practically counting the days (it's 257 if you're curious).


  1. Hot neighbor cowboy? Sign me up for that! This one sounds really interesting and it's new to me so thanks so much for posting it:) I'm adding it to my list now!

  2. Hm. Just realized it's not that new to me, I got thrown off by the cover which I hadn't seen before:) Just ignore me, I'm challenged today!

    That's okay! I think we all do that sometimes--I told someone I was going to start following their blog when I already was, they'd just redesigned in. I think pretty pictures throw us all of sometimes!

    Thanks for commenting, though :)
