Waiting On Wednesday (11)

Waiting on Wednesdays is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine!

My pick for this week is:
Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeevs

Sixteen-year-old Hanna J√§rvinen is an unusual girl with a head full of hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet full of frilly, violet dresses. Everything a girl needs–except love. But that’s what mothers are for, and Hanna is sure she can reconcile with hers, even though she was abandoned as a baby.


Unfortunately, her mother lives in Portero, an odd East Texas town with doors that lead out of the world, flesh-eating creatures, and parasitical spirits–not an ideal environment for winning a mother’s love.


Hanna, however, refuses to let a few monsters interfere with her plans. If she has to flirt a little, lie a little, kill a little, or even bleed a little, she’ll do it. Hanna can live with monsters and mayhem, but she would rather die than live without love.


Release Date: January 5, 2010


My thoughts:
I recently discovered this on Shelfari. It sounds awesome! And it's pretty refreshing to see a book about a girl who's "different" since usually they're considered "normal" girls. Plus, look at the beautiful cover! I can't believe I haven't heard of it before....

  3. This does sound awesome -- and you're totally right. They're usually considered "normal" girls, and it's like, "Psh, yeah right. Normal my behind..."
