Waiting on Wednesday: PREMEDITATED by Josin McQuein

Jill at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on. This Wednesday I am ravenously salivating over PREMEDITATED by Josin McQuein. Not only does this cover just scream "WICKED" it also has one of the most creepily enticing book summaries around. EEEP!! I just cannot believe I will have to wait until next fall to read it.

Now that you know my WoW what is yours?

A week ago, Dinah’s cousin Claire cut her wrists.

Five days ago, Dinah found Claire’s diary and discovered why.

Three days ago, Dinah stopped crying and came up with a plan.

Two days ago, she ditched her piercings and bleached the black dye from her hair.

Yesterday, knee socks and uniform plaid became a predator’s camouflage.

Today, she’ll find the boy who broke Claire.

By tomorrow, he’ll wish he were dead.

Lady S, Yes, it's exactly the book you saw on QueryShark in December 2010. I'm so excited to see this book in print, I forgot to breathe (fortunately the gills are very handy for moments like that)

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
