Waiting on Wednesday: Break My Heart 1,000 Times!

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

Break My Heart 1,000 Times
Daniel Waters
Hyperion
October 16th, 2012
Young Adult


Synopsis via Goodreads
Living in the aftermath of the Event means that seeing the dead is now a part of life, but Veronica wishes that the ghosts would just move on. Instead, the ghosts aren’t disappearing—they’re gaining power.

When Veronica and her friend, Kirk, decide to investigate why, they stumble upon a more sinister plot than they ever could have imagined. One of Veronica’s high school teachers is crippled by the fact that his dead daughter has never returned as a ghost, and he’s haunted by the possibility that she’s waiting to reappear within a fresh body. Veronica seems like the perfect host. And even if he’s wrong, what’s the harm in creating one more ghost?

From critically acclaimed Generation Dead author Daniel Waters, comes a delectably creepy and suspenseful thriller. Break My Heart 1,000 Times will leave readers with the chills. Or is that a ghost reading over the page?

Okay well first off, I'm not loving this cover. At all. For a book that sounds so haunting and darkly enticing, I feel it could have gotten a better cover. And it really reminds me of the cover for the anthology Dear Bully. Anyway, despite the lackluster cover job, this book sounds oh so deliciously dark and twisty. I haven't read of any of Waters' work before and didn't really have a particular desire to, until this one, which sounds soooo good! What do you think?

I am excited for this one too! I first saw it on a WOW post a couple weeks ago and immediately added it to my TBR. Great pick! :)

Waters tends to write really insightful, somewhat chilling fiction. I think this one has potential, but I agree with you on the cover... and I'm a little iffy on ghosts. Still worth looking out for, though! Nice pick!

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

Yeah, the cover for this really doesn't work for me either. I do like thrillers and ghost stories though so this may be a really good read.

I think that I want to read this book-that's what I think. :) I had already added it to my TBR list this week because I saw it somewhere on the net. It looks like a good one!

Thanks for sharing!
