Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Tressa @ Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the up-coming release of books that you’re excited about and haven’t read yet. Generally they’re books that haven’t been released. This is based off of Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill @ Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

First, can we just take a minute to appreciate just how creepy THAT COVER looks?!

And second, I will read anything that KIERSTEN WHITE writes. She is always on my auto-buy list and I don’t see that changing any time soon.

That cover is gives me the holy freakin’ CREEPS in though. Do you see the stitching of the word – frankenstein. A solitary boy who has everything, her survival depending on his temper no matter how depraved it is, and the very world she knows consumed in darkness – OH YES, I WANT TO READ THIS NOW PLEASE!

Elizabeth Lavenza hasn’t had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her “caregiver,” and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything–except a friend.

Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable–and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable.

But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth’s survival depends on managing Victor’s dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.

So, what books are you the most wishful for? Let me know in the comments below and leave a link back to your post, so that I can come by and share the comment love.

  1. Oh, Suz….I have to be honest — this is not my type of read at all…… I don’t read horror novels, because they just scare me too much! Yes, my unofficial nickname is “Chicken Little”. Lol. I just quake in my boots if I encounter anything even REMOTELY scary!! Lol.

    I do hope you enjoy reading this, though! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Also, I have been meaning to read Kiersten’s Paranormalcy series. I DO like paranormal romance and urban fantasy!

    Thanks for commenting on my own CWW post!! <3 πŸ™‚

    • Oh my goodness! You are so darn cute, I can’t help it. lol. I love to read all the scary and creepy books, but then if you try and get me to watch all of the scary and creepy movies at night in the dark by myself … well, then I become the “Chicken Little” or well maybe the “Chicken Big”. lol.

      But, I so adore the Frankenstein inspired stories so much, because it’s Gothic horror and it has this Victorian edge to it, that just reaches out and sort of intrigues me. Hee, I am pretty sure I will love it, because I really adore her writing style.

      Oooh, girl you really should read her Paranormalcy series, it’s really good and I think that you would like it. Actually, most of her books are fantastic. Hee, thanks for stopping by the blog. I’ll be making my way at some point over to yours. πŸ™‚

  2. This does look creepy! And I didn’t realize at first this was Kiersten White writing it! Wow should be good- and definitely dark!

  3. Yes… I checked this one out on Mary’s blog. You’re right – that cover is very arresting and I love the clever retread on the Frankenstein story, which is a heartbreaker anyway. I just hope there are a FEW shafts of light in amongst the bleak – and that you really love this one. I am also part of Maria’s Chicken Little Afraid of Horror Society – they give me nightmares:(… Have a great week and thank you for popping into Brainfluff!

  4. Great CWW pick I’ve been seeing this book quite a lot around lately and it looks and sounds absolutely amazingly fantastic, I love reading fantasy books as well but I don’t think I read a book that is dark fantasy yet. Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post.

  5. Ooh, I’m really looking forward to this one as well! Totally agree that that cover is super creepy–it seems to get creepier the longer I look at it, haha. Great choice!
