Waiting on Wednesday: Creepy Creature Edition

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

This week I'm waiting on a book with a really unique twist on a scary creature! I am soooo excited for this book that I can't really put it into words. So, without further ado, here it is:


The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan
Expected publication: 2013 by Delacorte Press
Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series and Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy will devour The Beautiful and the Cursed, a wholly original interpretation of gargoyle lore.
It was bizarre and inexplicable, but after it happened no one spoke of it and Ingrid Waverly was forced to leave her life in London behind. She had to trade a world full of fancy dresses and society events for Paris with her mother and younger sister, Gabby.
In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house her twin brother Grayson found for them isn't a house at all. It's an abbey. A creepy, old abbey with a roof lined in stone gargoyles that one could almost mistake for living, breathing creatures.
And Grayson is missing.
Yet no one seems to be concerned about Grayson's whereabouts save for Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant who has some secrets of his own.
There's one secret about the city that he can't keep hidden, though. There's a murderer on the loose. And every day Grayson is missing means that there's less of a chance he's alive.
Ingrid is sure her twin isn't dead--she can feel it deep in her soul--but she knows he's in grave danger, and that it's up to her and Gabby to find him before all hope is lost.
Only the path to him is twisted—and more deadly than she could ever imagine.

Dude, they had me at the BEAUTIFUL cover. Ok, maybe at "gargoyle lore" or maybe it was at "Paris." Whenever it was, I am so incredibly excited about this book I don't think you understand. It's like woahhhhh. 

What are you waiting on this week?
