“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what I’m waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Author: Francesca Lia Block
♡ Release Date: October 16th, 2012 (North America)
♡ Publisher: St. Martin’s Press/Macmillan (North America)
♡ Synopsis: “The Elementals” is on one level an intriguing coming-of-age novel about a young woman, Ariel Silverman, facing the challenges of her first years away at college in Berkeley, California, while her mother battles cancer at home in Los Angeles. But the book takes on deeper, stranger meanings when we realize that Ariel is haunted by the disappearance of her best friend, Jeni, who vanished without a trace a few years before, closing Ariel’s heart and changing her forever. Ariel wonders if she will ever be fully alive, until she meets three mysterious, beautiful and seductive young people living in a strange old house in the Berkeley hills. Through them Ariel will unravel the mystery of her best friend’s disappearance and face a chilling choice. (via goodreads)
♡ Why?: How could I not read my mentor’s newest book? Aside from that, I love mysteries, so I’m hoping that this will be awesome. And knowing Francesca, it will be, and not in the traditional sense of things. October can’t get here soon enough!
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
