Waiting On Wednesday [@naturallysteph @penguinteen @DuttonYR[

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:

Scream meets YA in this hotly-anticipated new novel from the bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss.

One-by-one, the students of Osborne High are dying in a series of gruesome murders, each with increasing and grotesque flair. As the terror grows closer and the hunt intensifies for the killer, the dark secrets among them must finally be confronted.

International bestselling author Stephanie Perkins returns with a fresh take on the classic teen slasher story that’s fun, quick-witted, and completely impossible to put down.

It's Stephanie Perkins.

. . . Really? You need more of a reason? Okay then:

I love the three novels and two anthologies of Stephanie Perkins' that I have already read and Lola and the Boy Next Door is still one of my absolute favorite books. Plus, I like a horror story - including those that are like the 90's teen slasher movies, but in book form!

Then there's what the author said about it on her blog:
And as odd as this may sound, it's not actually that different from my other books! There's still an intriguing boy, making out, self-awareness, and plenty of friends chatting and eating and gossiping together.

There just also happens to be a serial killer and lots and lots of death. Ha!
(And while I get that cover may not really be the cover, I actually like it. It's like it's SHOUTING a very dire warning right at you.)

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
