Waiting on Wednesday: The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

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!

The Wicker King

     The Wicker King is a psychological young adult thriller that follows two friends struggling as one spirals into madness.
     When August learns that his best friend, Jack, shows signs of degenerative hallucinatory disorder, he is determined to help Jack cope. Jack’s vivid and long-term visions take the form of an elaborate fantasy world layered over our own—a world ruled by the Wicker King. As Jack leads them on a quest to fulfill a dark prophecy in this alternate world, even August begins to question what is real or not. 
     August and Jack struggle to keep afloat as they teeter between fantasy and their own emotions. In the end, each must choose his own truth.

Why I'm Waiting: It sounds a little weird, but I'll try anything as long as it says "psychological young adult thriller." Plus, I wanna know what makes this contemp and not fantasy and whether the lines on both of those genres blur because this is a thriller. (Does that make sense or did I just nerd out and ramble lol) Either way, I wanna read this book lmao 

What are you waiting on this week?
WIll you be waiting on this with me?

  2. Oooo, that is an interesting cover! I love psychological thrillers, though they freak me out a little. One that I read recently (and enjoyed) is Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott. Great book. :D Anyway, I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Nikki. =)
