Waiting on Wednesday (10)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week, I am waiting on Undeadly by Michele Vail (11/20/12):

Description on Good Reads:
“The day I turned 16, my boyfriend-to-be died. I brought him back to life. Then things got a little weird...

Molly Bartolucci wants to blend in, date hottie Rick and keep her zombie-raising abilities on the down-low. Then the god Anubis chooses her to become a reaper-and she accidentally undoes the work of another reaper, Rath. Within days, she’s shipped off to the Nekyia Academy, an elite school that trains the best necromancers in the world. And her personal reaping tutor? Rath. Who seems to hate her guts.

Rath will be watching closely to be sure she completes her first assignment-reaping Rick, the boy who should have died. The boy she still wants to be with. To make matters worse, students at the academy start turning up catatonic, and accusations fly-against Molly. The only way out of this mess? To go through hell. Literally.”



Well, this book sounds awesome! I have only had good experiences with Reaper/necromancer stories in YA so far. I’m hoping it’s a trend. Also, it kind of sounds like a Hogwarts for necromancers at one point! Also, throw in Anubis mythology, zombies, and forbidden romance, and well, how could this not be awesome? I only just happened to read this description the other day, and I have no idea how it’s not been on my radar for longer. Really, it just sounds so cool. I cannot wait for this to come out.
