Waiting On Wednesday [18]

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It features novels that readers are eagerly anticipating the release of.  

by Saudra Mitchell
Hardcover, 272 pages
Expected publication: February 4th, 2014
Publisher: 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?

This cover is brilliant!  I love how the girl is looking at the lighthouse, and how it's not just a random image but actually has something to do with the story line. Mistwalker doesn't come out until 2014...and right about now that seems like an eternity of waiting. Lol, I feel like it just turned 2013 and they're already marketing books that we probably won't see for another year. This story sounds so creepy and cool at the same time. I keep wondering who this grey man is. Hopefully the wait to read Mistwalker won't be as long as it seems! 

What are you waiting on?

  1. 2014?! Ugh. That wait sounds like it could and would kill me! Haha. And I definitely agree about the cover. Her body position highlights the lighthouse and I can't help but wonder how large a role that would play in the novel.
