Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

The Sweetest Dark
by Shana Abé

hitting shelves August 21st, 2012 from Random House

Chosen to be a charity student at a boarding school in World War I England, sixteen-year-old Lora discovers her long, latent magical powers just in time to battle an evil bent on decimating the school.

My thoughts:
I just learned about this one this past weekend from Jessica @ BookSake's mailbox!! The synopsis is just a tiny little thing so far, but with talk of a WWI English setting & magical powers, it sounds like something I need to read! And that cover---so gorgeous.


  1. The synopsis is indeed very little. But, the cover is catching - sounds greta!

  2. That summary is really vague... agreed with the talk, it sounds like something to go on TBR lists! Added!
    Enjoy this when it comes!

  3. I've got Abe's Drakon series in my TBR pile. The YA cover is eye-catching.

    Here's my WOW pick.
