Waiting On Wednesday {21}

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Expected Publication: February 4th 2014 by Harcourt Children's Books


When Willa Dixon’s brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on the deck again. With her family suffering, she’ll do anything to help out—even visiting the Grey Man.

Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn’t a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls.

Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?

Doesn't this just sound so amazing? Seriously? Doesn't it? If you say no I may have to hurt you. But then again, I feel like holding another publisher's family hostage because this doesn't come out for just under an entire year! Yes. 2014 is a cruel, cruel date. I absolutely love how the model's body positioning highlights the important role the lighthouse plays. Not too mention the waves that are crashing and the wind? Beautiful.

So many good books so far, guys, I don't know how I'm going to get through all of them!

Link me up your WOW posts and I'll drop on by for a visit as always!

Hey, you there, yes you ;)

Thanks for commenting! This is seriously awesome and I promise to try my hardest to get back to you, so do check back if you had a question or something to discuss!

Sadly, this is an award free blog. I really, really appreciate the thought and offer but with grade twelve and other activities as well as blogging, I don't really have all the spare time in the world. But thank you so much for the thought!

Seriously, though. Check back because I love to reply to comments ;)
