Waiting on Wednesday - September 16th

Waiting On Wednesday

Hosted by Breaking The Spine

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks's pre-publication "can't wait to read" is :

My So-Called Death by Stacey Jay
Release Date : March, 2010

From Author Website :

Just because you don't have a pulse doesn't mean you can't be perky.

One second, sophomore Karen Vera's on top of the most fabulous cheer pyramid ever. The next, she's lying on the pavement with seriously unflattering cranial damage. Freakishly alive without a pulse, Karen learns that she's a genetically undead zombie.

Soon, Karen is sent off to DEAD High, a boarding school for the "death-challenged," and her non-life is suddenly an epic disaster. She's stuck with a greasy-haired, wannabe-Goth roommate who hates her guts. She's chowing down on animal brains every day to prevent rot (um, ew?). Even worse, someone is attacking students and harvesting their brains for a dark ritual . . . and it might be the hottest guy at DEAD High, the one who makes Karen's non-beating heart flutter!

As more brains are stolen—including her best friend's—Karen tracks down the brain snatcher to save her fellow students from certain zombie death.

All I can say is that first...I love this cover, it's cute yet so extremely colorful that it caught my eye the second I saw it. Second, I love zombies! There have been so many zombie books (and now movies!) coming out, and I still can't get enough of them. I can't wait for this book to come out, even though it's a ways away! In the meantime, I will have to settle with reading Stacey Jay's, You Are So Undead To Me, because it looks fantastic too!

This book sounds like a fun read. The cover is cool, it creeps me out a little, though. I think I'll check out her other book as well. Thanks!

Cindy said...

lol Jessica, I guess it is a lil creepy. It just reminds me of Halloween, and silly makeup.

Cindy - I noticed you were the one that posted about it on PBS (books to wishlist), and thought it looked great!
