Waiting on Wednesday: The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Mackie Doyle seems like everyone else in the perfect little town of Gentry, but he is living with a fatal secret - he is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now the creatures under the hill want him back, and Mackie must decide where he really belongs and what he really wants.

A month ago, Mackie might have told them to buzz off. But now, with a budding relationship with tough, wounded, beautiful Tate, Mackie has too much to lose. Will love finally make him worthy of the human world?

I have never wanted a book for the cover alone, but this one is spectacular!  Just makes me want to read it right now!

  2. It's one of the few books that are at the top of my wishlist!Can't wait!

  3. What an intriguing and rather daunting cover!

  7. The cover is amazing-so intriguing yet creepy. The story sounds really interesting-very different form other pre-releases. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I agree, the cover is spectacular, but also a little unsettling! The changing places with a baby sounds interesting, wonder if we'll wind up with both sides of the story.

  9. That's a fantastic cover!

    Thanks for stopping by my Book Blogs Profile! (Sorry, I'm still trying to figure Ning out...)
