Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme/feature created by Breaking the Spine.

This week, I’m excited for a book that may shock you because I disliked the first two books in the series, but this third and final part to the trilogy sounds EXACTLY like the book I wanted from the start.

Good reads synopsis:

Brooklyn knows that there’s no good without evil, no right without wrong. And when a helpless girl calls her teen helpline, whispering that someone is hurting her, Brooklyn knows that she needs to save her anonymous caller, even if it means doing something bad.

Her parents and friends assure her the call was probably a prank but Brooklyn has always had a tendency to take over, whether someone has asked for help or not.

She discovers the call came from Christ First Church and finds herself plunged into the cultish community of its youth group. She’s especially drawn to Gavin, the angelic yet tortured pastor’s son.

Torn between an unstoppable attraction to Gavin and her obsession with the truth, Brooklyn is forced to make a devastating choice to rid Christ Church of evil once and for all. . . . But the devil has plans for Brooklyn’s soul.

Why? In my reviews for the first two books in The Merciless trilogy, I mentioned that all I wanted to know about was how Brooklyn became a demon because it was never talked about, and now I’ve gotten my wish!

My hopes are very high for this one and I know they shouldn’t be. Most of the plot has probably already been spoiled for me from this synopsis alone, but I really want to know more about Brooklyn.

What are you book are you “waiting” to read?

Bookish Song: Maneater by Nelly Furtado
My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤⛤⛤

The first thing that made me want to read this book was it’s gorgeous cover, the second was it’s description. From the description alone I knew I was going to love this book. To sum up, this book is about sixteen-year-old Maren Yearly who has a tiny bit of a problem, she’s a cannibal. As an infant she ate her babysitter when her mother was out and ever since she’s been a literal maneater, moving all across the United States after she does “the bad thing” (a.k.a. eats someone) with her mother so the two will not be caught and put in jail. The day after her sixteenth birthday, Maren’s mother leaves as she is unable to cope with moving around the country and being a mother to a daughter who can eat someone at any given moment. Maren goes searching for her father, who left before she was born, to find out why she eats people and who she is along the way. Continue reading
