I haven’t done a Waiting on Wednesday post in I don’t know how long, so I thought why not do one this week? There are so many books coming out in 2016 that I am highly anticipating but this one may take the top spot. I read this author’s other young adult book that came out last year (2015) and absolutely loved it. I was beyond thrilled to see she had another young adult mystery book coming out as well but was disappointed that I will be waiting until August to read it. Here is my first Waiting on Wednesday book of 2016:
The Telling by Alexandra Sirowy
Expected Publication: August 2, 2016
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.
Alexandra Sirowy’s other young adult mystery, The Creeping, came out in August 2015. It was original and kept me turning page after page to find out the shocking ending. If you haven’t read The Creeping yet and you’re into young adult mysteries and thrillers, I’d definitely recommend you read The Creeping and adding The Telling to your TBR list.
