Waiting on Wednesday {29}

Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!
This week my WoW pick is...

The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle!
Release Date ~ September 25, 2012 from Graphia (HMH)

If your home was the last safe place on earth, would you let a stranger in?

In this captivating thriller, an Amish settlement is the last safe haven in a world plagued by an unspeakable horror…

Katie is on the verge of her Rumspringa, the time in Amish life when teenagers are free to experience non-Amish culture before officially joining the church. But before Rumspringa arrives, Katie’s safe world starts to crumble. It begins with a fiery helicopter crash in the cornfields, followed by rumors of massive unrest and the disappearance of huge numbers of people all over the world. Something is out there...and it is making a killing.

Unsure why they haven’t yet been attacked, the Amish Elders make a decree: No one goes outside their community, and no one is allowed in. But when Katie finds a gravely injured young man lying just outside the boundary of their land, she can’t leave him to die. She refuses to submit to the Elder’s rule and secretly brings the stranger into her community—but what else is she bringing in with him?

So this book popped up on my radar when one my blogger friends received it, and the idea is just so out there that I decided that I MUST read this one! I desperately want to read more scary books that send shivers down my spine :)

Plus, I keep seeing Lauren DeStefano raving about how we all need to read this one- and if another author loves a book that much (when I love said author's books) then that's enough to convince me to give a book a chance all on its own.

Tell me though, what are YOU waiting on this Wednesday??
