Waiting On Wednesday (101)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. WOW spotlights forthcoming titles that we absolutely can't wait to read.






Shifting by Bethany Wiggins


Summary: After bouncing from foster home to foster home, Magdalene Mae is transferred to what should be her last foster home in the tiny town of Silver City, New Mexico. Now that she's eighteen and has only a year left in high school, she's determined to stay out of trouble and just be normal. Agreeing to go to the prom with Bridger O'Connell is a good first step. Fitting in has never been her strong suit, but it's not for the reasons most people would expect-it all has to do with the deep secret that she is a shape shifter. But even in her new home danger lurks, waiting in the shadows to pounce. They are the Skinwalkers of Navajo legend, who have traded their souls to become the animal whose skin they wear-and Maggie is their next target.

Full of romance, mysticism, and intrigue, this dark take on Navajo legend will haunt readers to the final page.

Why I Want It: I'm a little unsure of this one as of now, but I think I will still read it and see if I like it. Any thoughts on it?

Sounds like an interesting read. I like the cover too. The one I found on goodreads.com is a front view which I don't like as much.

The cover is absolutely incredible (though Goodreads has a different one).

I like the premiss, but I think whoever wrote the cover copy (usually the editor) did a really terrible job, which is kind of a red flag...

I'll probably read it anyways though. I guess I can't fault the author for something they didn't write.

You can see what I'm waiting for this week @ Slush Sleuth
