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.  

by Katie Alender

from Scholastic Point
Delia's new house isn't just a house. It used to be an insane asylum, a place to lock up "troubled" young women long ago. And a restless, wicked spirit is still at play--and it doesn't want defiant girls like Delia to go anywhere.

So the house kills her.

Now Delia is a ghost, trapped in her creepy home forever. As she meets the other ghost girls who haunt the narrow hallways, as well as the handsome ghost boy on the grounds, she learns shocking truths about the house's history. Delia also realizes that her alive and grieving sister might be the house's next target. Can Delia unlock the mystery of the old asylum, save her sister, and free herself?

My thoughts:  Not so sure about this just feels a little...dated, I guess? I can't pinpoint it--but it doesn't strike me as a big-six cover. Maybe it's the font.  Maybe it will grow on me :).  BUT I AM sure about my excitement for Katie Alender's next book!  I enjoy her style of spookiness so much! And this sound fun and creepy :D

    WOW! This is such creepy read. I'm not sure I could get through it and if I did, it would have to be during the day. I agree about the cover…feels sort of 80s to me. Thanks for sharing this one with us!

  2. I agree about the cover. It just seems a bit bland and the font is awful. But the book itself sounds great! Very creepy which I love and I've always enjoyed ghost stories. Will definitely give this one a go!

  3. lol, the cover is interesting :D But yess. Now that you mention it.. the font is a bit weird :p maybe they will change it ;p Anyway. Looks interesting, even so :D I hope you will love this book Becky. <3 Thank you for sharing about it :)

  4. This definitely sounds spooky, but also very intriguing! And I agree about the cover - it's not the best.

  5. The cover is unfortunate, but the summary seems intriguing! Alender is great at writing creepy books!

  6. Great choice. I've heard great things about Katie Alender's books though I've never read any of them. I hope you enjoy this one when it comes out. :)

  7. Great pick! I love the sound of the book but the cover is a definite no-no. Will look out for a copy anyway as I've really enjoyed the other books I've read by Katie Alender :)

  8. I'm not a big fan of the cover, either. But the story sounds really good. Thanks for sharing!

    My WoW:

  9. OMG! I love Katie Alendars book, and this one looks awesome, and I actually like this cover.
