WoW, which stands for Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme hosted by Jill, over at Breaking the Spine. On Wednesdays, you make a post about the book that you are most looking forward to that week. For me, this week, it's going to be. . .
The Gathering, by Kelley Armstrong
Summary (from Goodreads): Maya lives in a small medical-research town on Vancouver Island. How small? You can’t find it on the map. It has less than two-hundred people, and her school has only sixty-eight students—for every grade from kindergarten to twelve.
Now, strange things are happening in this claustrophobic town, and Maya's determined to get to the bottom of them. First, the captain of the swim team drowns mysteriously in the middle of a calm lake. A year later, mountain lions start appearing around Maya's home, and they won’t go away. Her best friend, Daniel, starts getting negative vibes from certain people and things. It doesn't help that the new bad boy in town, Rafe, has a dangerous secret—and he's interested in one special part of Maya's anatomy: Her paw-print birthmark.
Why do I want to read it? Easy. I love Kelley Armstrong's writing. I read the Darkest Powers trilogy and absolutely loved them. She has descriptive writing, amazing ideas, and some amusing lines. This sounds quite different from the necromancy and such, but still great. I'm already curious about her birthmark, just from reading the summary.
