Waiting On Wednesday [12]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. Each Wednesday we pick a book that we can't wait to get our paws on and share it with the rest of you!

I really love the name of my pick this week. I was always such a fan of the Velveteen Rabbit when I was little so it caught my eye and after seeing the cover and reading the synopsis I knew I had to read it.

Daniel Marks
Release Date: October 9th 2012
Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that's not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it's not a fiery inferno, it's certainly no heaven. It's gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn't leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what's really on her mind.


Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she's figured out just how to do it. She'll haunt him for the rest of his days.
It'll be brutal . . . and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen's obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she's willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules . . . or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

:Why I Can't Wait:
Ah. Forbidden Romance. You always know they are going to turn out interestingly. I'm pretty excited to see this Velveteen gal get her haunt on. Nothing like a woman scorned, or you know...killed. And Bonesaw seems like a pretty intimidating name does it not?! This book does look edgy, and I really hope it delivers on that front... But I am not going to lie, I am more drawn in to the whole off limits coworker. I love me some forbidden romance and this seems to fit that bill perfectly. And I am kinda crushing on the guy in this cover. Yeah, I have to turn my computer upside down to properly drool over his amazing face, but I am willing to do it all day long if I have to.

Am I the only one here who made the Velveteen Rabbit connection...I was kinda obsessed with that book when I was little. I even had the Rabbit who could turn inside out...But anyway, enough with my younger years babble, doesn't this book look amazing?! If you haven't seen it before now and think it looks as great as I do don't forget to head on over to goodreads and add it to your list! All you have to do is click that gorgeous cover.

Do you have a book you can't get off your mind?! Leave me your own Waiting on Wednesday link or just let me know below!

  8. I definitely made the Velveteen Rabbit connection, too! I have to say that I find the premise really interesting, but I kind of hate the cover. Ah well. Isn't that the way? Can't have everything you want. Nice pick!

  10. Another amazing pick, Shawna! I love the whole concept and I'll be adding it to my TBR list! The girl on the cover reminds me of the sick version of Bella in Breaking Dawn pt. 1. It's a little creepy. But the guy is definitely good looking :) Thanks for stopping by!
