Waiting on Wednesday: Freeks by Amanda Hocking

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!


     Welcome to Gideon Davorin’s Traveling Sideshow, where necromancy, magical visions, and pyrokinesis are more than just part of the act…
     Mara has always longed for a normal life in a normal town where no one has the ability to levitate or predict the future. Instead, she roams from place to place, cleaning the tiger cage while her friends perform supernatural feats every night.
     When the struggling sideshow is miraculously offered the money they need if they set up camp in Caudry, Louisiana, Mara meets local-boy Gabe…and a normal life has never been more appealing.
     But before long, performers begin disappearing and bodes are found mauled by an invisible beast. Mara realizes that there’s a sinister presence lurking in the town with its sights set on getting rid of the sideshow freeks. In order to unravel the truth before the attacker kills everyone Mara holds dear, she has seven days to take control of a power she didn’t know she was capable of—one that could change her future forever.
     Bestselling author Amanda Hocking draws readers inside the dark and mysterious world of Freeks.

Why I'm Waiting: Ok so my main reasoning for wanting this book so bad is because it sounds a bit like American Horror Story's Season when they did Freakshow. Of course it's  not the same, but it sounds dark and twisty too. Plus, it just sounds bad ass. I haven't read a good paranormal/ supernatural book in a good while, so maybe this one will be my next one! (Plus, if you don't like the cover on this you're crazy....)

  2. Amanda Hockings has consistently gotten paid since like, 2011. This one sounds interesting and different though!
