Waiting on Wednesday: Velveteen!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Velveteen, #1

Synopsis via Goodreads
Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that's not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it's not a fiery inferno, it's certainly no heaven. It's gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn't leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what's really on her mind.


Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she's figured out just how to do it. She'll haunt him for the rest of his days.
It'll be brutal . . . and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen's obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she's willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules . . . or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.


So this is one that's been on my 2012 wishlist since last year. I'm not entirely sure what I think of the cover. I think I like it. Either way, the story sounds really dark and twisty and I hope it turns out to be just that. Can't wait for this one! What do you think?

I hadn't heard of this one until (very) recently, and I have to say I'm not a fan of the cover. I do like the idea of the story, though. And the description of Purgatory reminds me very much of C.S. Lewis' version in The Great Divorce. Totally random! Anyway, nice pick!

If you’d like, you can check out my WoW here.

This one does look awesome, I was just approved for it this morning so I can't wait until I can fit it in because it sounds like a book I will love.

I hope you enjoy it once you get a chance to read it :)
