Waiting on Wednesday: Slasher Edition

This bookish meme shows the blogging world what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for. It's run by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Today starts Day 3 of "31 Days of Halloween!" So, in honor of Waiting on Wednesday, I found a book I'm waiting on that will be sure to have your heart pounding as you read it! So, what are you waiting on this week? 
A girl does a macabre dance with death in this eerie new novel fromNew York Times bestselling author Brenna Yovanoff.

For Hannah, the summer is a complicated one.  Her best friend Lillian died six months ago, and Hannah just wants her life to go back to normal. But how can things be normal when Lillian’s ghost is haunting her bedroom, pushing her to investigate the mysterious string of murders?  Hannah’s just trying to understand why her friend self-destructed, and where she fits now that Lillian isn’t there to save her a place among the social elite. And she must stop thinking about Finny Boone, the big, enigmatic delinquent whose main hobbies seem to include petty larceny and surprising acts of kindness.

With the entire city in a panic, Hannah soon finds herself drawn into a world of ghost girls and horrifying secrets.  She realizes that only by confronting the Valentine Killer will she be able move on with her life—and it’s up to her to put together the pieces before he strikes again.
