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.
A Murder of Magpies
by Sarah Bromley

hitting shelves October 28th, 2014 from Month9Books

description:
Winter in Black Orchard, Wisconsin, is long and dark, and sixteen-year-old Vayda Silver prays the snow will keep the truth and secrecy of the last two years buried. Hiding from the past with her father and twin brother, Vayda knows the rules: never return to the town of her mother’s murder, and never work a Mind Game where someone might see.

No one can know the toll emotions take on Vayda, how emotion becomes energy in her hands, or how she can’t control the destruction she causes. But it's not long before her powers can no longer be contained. The truth is dangerously close to being exposed, placing Vayda and her family at risk.

Until someone quiets the chaos inside her.

Unwanted. That's all Ward Ravenscroft has ever been. To cope, he numbs the pain of rejection by denying himself emotions of any kind. Yet Vayda stirs something in him. He can't explain the hold she has on him--inspiring him with both hope and fear. He claims not to scare easily, except he doesn't know what her powers can do. Yet.

Just as Vayda and Ward draw closer, she finds the past isn't so easily buried. And when it follows the Silvers to Black Orchard, it has murder in mind.
My thoughts:  This sounds dark and mysterious, and I love the tagline on the cover. It has me so intrigued.  And can I just say---Month 9 Books has the most amazing art department! I don't think I've seen a dud cover yet from them. This one is especially gorgeous!

  11. Definitely sounds like an interesting book! I agree, the cover is amazing. (Also, I kind of love the name Vayda- I assume it is pronounced like Vada in My Girl?) Hope you enjoy it :)

    You always have the best books for your WoW! I always end up adding them to my TBR. I love the tagline and cover as well, very clever. Plus I haven't read anything like this in a while, so looking forward to it. Another great pick :).

  17. I LOVED Gilmore Girls! Dead Like Me was also fun. Sherlock is amazing and somehow missed my list (lack of thought there). Downton Abbey is one I have been enjoying as well. Great list!
