Waiting on (late) Wednesday

Release Date:April 12th, 2011

Author: Kelley Armstrong
Pages: 400

Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.

Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret—and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark

Why I'm Excited:
I'm so excited for this book it doesn't even make sense. I love her first young adult series, The Darkest Powers (The Summoning, The Awakening, and The Reckoning), it's an awesome series with likeable characters, a little bit of witty dialogue, romance, and just anything you can name :) I have a feeling this series won't fail me..I haven't read her other series for adults but I might give it a try. I find it funny how the main character's name, Maya, is my name.


  1. oohhh this one sounds intriguing! Good pick!

    Just wanted to let you know that you've won an award on my blog! You can pick it up here:

  2. Great pick! I've read her other series, too, and loved it. I also find it funny to read books with characters will my name, though it isn't often I read them.

  3. This is an interesting pick, I hadn't heard of it. There are so many great books coming out next year, I already have my next few waiting on wednesdays decided!

  4. I was actually pretty disappointed with the ending of the Darkest Powers series so am not as excited about the new series.
