Waiting On Wednesday: 02/17/2016

waiting on wednesday

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.

What This Book Is About

Every year, the lives of ten girls at Vienna High are transformed.

All because of the list.

Kenzie Summerall can’t imagine how she’s been voted onto a list of the hottest girls in school, but when she lands at number five, her average life becomes dazzling. Doors open to the best parties, new friends surround her, the cutest jock in school is after her.

This is the power of the list. If you’re on it, your life changes.

If you’re on it this year? Your life ends.

My Thoughts on This Book

SERIOUSLY I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THIS BOOK IS PUBLISHED! Only 25 more days and I can finally buy this book and get completely absorbed in the story. I love young adult thrillers and mysteries so I am certainly excited for They All Fall Down. I feel like it is totally and completely going to deliver the thrill factor and that it will become one of my new YA thriller favorites.

Is They All Fall Down on your TBR-list? If not, now that you read the summary are you interested in reading it? If anyone has read an ARC copy I’d love to know what you would rate it out of 5 stars 🙂 Thanks!
