Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday as hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each week we will be highlighting an upcoming novel that we are excited about. We will include links to add it to your Goodreads “To Be Read” shelf and where to pre-order it! As well, we will link to our review if we have been lucky enough to read an advanced copy of the book. Today’s featured book is…THE TELLING by Alexandra Sirowy!The Telling by Alexandra Sirowy
Published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers on August 2nd 2016
Amazon ♡ Chapters ♡ TBD
Lana used to know what was real.
That was before when her life was small and quiet. Her golden step-brother, Ben, was alive, she could only dream about bonfiring with the populars, their wooded island home was idyllic, she could tell the truth from lies, and Ben’s childhood stories were firmly in her imagination.
Then came after.
After has Lana boldly kissing her crush, jumping into the water from too high up, and living with nerve and mischief. But after also has horrors, deaths that only make sense in fairy tales, and terrors from a past Lana thought long forgotten: Love, blood, and murder.
Why We’re Waiting On It
There is so much that seems to be going on in this one, so we are both really excited to read it! Jamie has it pre-ordered and is counting down the seconds until it lands in her mail box. She is really intrigued by the entire premise and thinks the cover is going to look fantastic on her bookshelf. Dani also has it preordered…though on Kindle because she’s supposed to be cutting back on the physical books, what with her moving to a smaller apartment.
