Waiting on Wednesday & A to Z Wednesday

Sponsored by "Breaking the Spine". This weeks can't wait to read selection is:


Here is my pick this week:


Fade Out - Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires Book 7)

Synopsis

Without
the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, the resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their new found freedoms, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again...

Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of Eve's cast mates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger—and way more dangerous—than anyone suspected.

THIS WEEKS LETTER IS: G

Ghost Writer - John Harwood

Synopsis

A tantalizing tale of suspense and family secrets that weaves Victorian ghost stories into the present – where they start to come true

Timid, solitary librarian Gerard Freeman lives for just two things: his elusive pen pal Alice and a story he found hidden in his mother’s drawer years ago. Written by his great-grandmother Viola, it hints at his mother's role in a sinister crime. And as he discovers more of Viola’s chilling tales, he realizes that they might hold the key to finding Alice and unveiling his family's mystery – or will they bring him the untimely death they seem to foretell?

Harwood’s astonishing, assured debut shows us just how dangerous family skeletons – and stories -- can be.
