Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I’ve been noticing a lot of unusual books that are coming out this year. Which makes me think that 2013 is going to be a good, good year 😛

I Am Waiting On..

Another Little PieceAnother Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn
Expected Release Date: June 11th 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
Synopsis: The spine-tingling horror of Stephen King meets an eerie mystery worthy of Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series in Kate Karyus Quinn’s haunting debut.

On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished.

A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn’t know who she is. She doesn’t know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.

Now Annaliese is haunted by strange visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . . a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared. Piece by piece, Annaliese’s fractured memories come together to reveal a violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock the twisted secrets of her past.

Why I Need It: This book practically promises a creepy, intriguing story. I love creepy, intriguing stories!

Charm & StrangeCharm & Strange by Stephanie Kuehn
Expected Release Date: June 11th 2013
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Synopsis: When you’ve been kept caged in the dark, it’s impossible to see the forest for the trees. It’s impossible to see anything, really. Not without bars . . . 

Andrew Winston Winters is at war with himself.

He’s part Win, the lonely teenager exiled to a remote Vermont boarding school in the wake of a family tragedy. The guy who shuts all his classmates out, no matter the cost.

He’s part Drew, the angry young boy with violent impulses that control him. The boy who spent a fateful, long-ago summer with his brother and teenage cousins, only to endure a secret so monstrous it led three children to do the unthinkable.

Over the course of one night, while stuck at a party deep in the New England woods, Andrew battles both the pain of his past and the isolation of his present.

Before the sun rises, he’ll either surrender his sanity to the wild darkness inside his mind or make peace with the most elemental of truths—that choosing to live can mean so much more than not dying.

Why I Need It: That synopsis is just–wow. It reminds me a bit of The Yellow Wallpaper for some reason… Perhaps it is because of the ‘surrender his sanity’ part?
