Waiting on Wednesday (145)

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 These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly (10/27/15):

Description on Goodreads:
Set in gilded age New York, These Shallow Graves follows the story of Josephine Montfort, an American aristocrat. Jo lives a life of old-money ease. Not much is expected of her other than to look good and marry well. But when her father dies due to an accidental gunshot, the gilding on Jo’s world starts to tarnish. With the help of a handsome and brash reporter, and a young medical student who moonlights in the city morgue, Jo uncovers the truth behind her father’s death and learns that if you’re going to bury the past, you’d better bury it deep.
Why I’m Waiting:
I love this author. I loved her first two YA books. I also love her adult books. I have yet to start her mermaid series, but I have all of the books in it, that are out, sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read. This sounds like an interesting enough story. It sounds like historical fiction, what Donnelly does best. And it also sounds like there could be a love triangle, and possibly grave robbing. I am so there! I also just know it will have some amazing, top notch writing too.
What are you waiting on this week?

  7. This one look so creepy and yet I'm drawn to it. I'll probably end up caving and reading it.

    After being in the hospital with a 103 flu, I'm behind on this meme so hope you don't mind I'm commenting nearly a week late.
