Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It is a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about what upcoming books they are most looking forward to reading.
My pick of the week is:
Title: The Neighbors
Author: Ania Ahlborn
Publication Date: Nov. 27, 2012
Andrew Morrison sacrificed everything—his childhood, his education, and the girl of his dreams—to look after his alcoholic mother. But enough is enough, and now he’s determined to get out and live his life. That means trading the home he grew up in for a rented room in the house of an old childhood friend— both of which are in sorry shape.
The only thing worse than Drew’s squalid new digs and sullen new roommate is the envy he feels for the house next door: a picture-perfect suburban domicile straight out of Norman Rockwell, with a couple of happy householders to match. But the better acquainted he gets with his new neighbors—especially the sweet and sexy Harlow Ward—the more he suspects unspeakable darkness beyond the white picket fence.
At the intersection of Blue Velvet and Basic Instinct lies The Neighbors, an insidiously entertaining tale of psychological suspense and mounting terror by the boldest new master of the form, Ania Ahlborn.
Why am I looking forward to it?
Ania Ahlborn's first book, Seed, was one of the creepiest books I've ever read. I cannot wait to check out more of her writing style and see what she comes up with in this new book. Synopsis sounds interesting doesn't it?
What are you looking forward to?
