Waiting On Wednesday #89: SWEET UNREST by Lisa Maxwell (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting for...

by Lisa Maxwell
Expected release date: October 8th, 2014
Published by: Flux 
Genre: Young Adult
Format: Paperback


Lucy Aimes has always been practical. But try as she might, she can’t come up with a logical explanation for the recurring dreams that have always haunted her. Dark dreams. Dreams of a long-ago place filled with people she shouldn’t know…but does.

When her family moves to a New Orleans plantation, Lucy’s dreams become more intense, and her search for answers draws her reluctantly into the old city’s world of Voodoo and mysticism. There, Lucy finds Alex, a mysterious boy who behaves as if they’ve known each other forever. Lucy knows Alex is hiding something, and her rational side doesn’t want to be drawn to him. But she is.

As she tries to uncover Alex’s secrets, a killer strikes close to home, and Lucy finds herself ensnared in a century-old vendetta. With the lives of everyone she loves in danger, Lucy will have to unravel the mystery of her dreams before it all comes to a deadly finish.

Why I'm waiting on SWEET UNREST...

First, the cover is stunning!

Second... New Orleans! 
I love when books are set in Louisiana!

Next, voodoo!

Lastly... mysterious boy!!!

It's giving me a good Beautiful Creatures kind of vibe!
I've pre-ordered it! Cannot wait to read it in October!
