Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
This week I’m eagerly awaiting:
The Glass Casket by McCormick Templeman
Expected Release Date: February 11, 2014
Death hasn’t visited Rowan Rose since it took her mother when Rowan was only a little girl. But that changes one bleak morning, when five horses and their riders thunder into her village and through the forest, disappearing into the hills. Days later, the riders’ bodies are found, and though no one can say for certain what happened in their final hours, their remains prove that whatever it was must have been brutal.
Rowan’s village was once a tranquil place, but now things have changed. Something has followed the path those riders made and has come down from the hills, through the forest, and into the village. Beast or man, it has brought death to Rowan’s door once again.
Only this time, its appetite is insatiable.

What I love about this one’s summary is that nothing is given away, really. It’s the perfect teaser for a book that’s undoubtedly creepy and a little haunting. Do I wish the cover weren’t quite so irritating? Yes, of course. There’s no reason to sexualize the girl quite so much with the red lips and nails (why are they in her mouth, really? is there a point to the story?), but that’s what sells, right?
At any rate, I’ll definitely be checking this one out.
What are you waiting on this week?
