Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m waiting on………
This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis
Publication: October 10th 2017
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Genres: YA, Mystery, Psychological Thriller
Sasha Stone knows her place—first-chair clarinet, top of her class, and at the side of her oxford-wearing boyfriend. She’s worked her entire life to ensure that her path to Oberlin Conservatory as a star musician is perfectly paved.
But suddenly there’s a fork in the road, in the shape of Isaac Harver. Her body shifts toward him when he walks by, her skin misses his touch even though she’s never known it, and she relishes the smell of him—smoke, beer, and trouble—all the things she’s avoided to get where she is. Even worse, every time he’s near Sasha, her heart stops, literally. Why does he know her so well—too well—and she doesn’t know him at all?
Sasha discovers that her by-the-book life began by ending another’s: the twin sister she absorbed in the womb. But that doesn’t explain the gaps of missing time in her practice schedule or the memories she has of things she certainly never did with Isaac. As Sasha loses her much-cherished control, her life—and heart—become more entangled with Isaac. Armed with the knowledge that her heart might not be hers alone, Sasha must decide what she’s willing to do—and who she’s willing to hurt—to take it back.
Edgar Award–winning author Mindy McGinnis delivers a dark and gripping psychological thriller about a girl at war with herself, and what it really means to be good or bad.
Why am I waiting?
It’s Mindy freaking McGinnis! Do I even need to say more? Seriously, I love her writing and her knack for bringing characters to life. She has two books coming this year, the other being Given to the Sea in April. I love that she isn’t afraid to write new things. She went from dystopia to contemporary to fantasy to psychological thriller, all within less than 5 years. I’m convinced that she can write about a grain of salt and it would be worth reading. The woman is very talented and I will read anything she puts out. I’m ready to meet Sasha Stone. Tell me that blurb doesn’t make you want to know this girl!! What books are you guys waiting on this week?
