"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's WoW selection is...

Add to Goodreads
Title:  Hysteria
Author:  Megan Miranda
Series:  stand-alone
Publisher:  Walker Childrens
Publication Date:  February 5, 2013

Mallory's life is falling apart. Her boyfriend was stabbed. He bled to death in her kitchen. Mallory was the one who stabbed him. But she can't remember what happened that night. She only remembers the fear . . .

When Mallory's parents send her away to a boarding school, she thinks she can escape the gossip and the threats. But someone, or something, has followed her. There's the hand that touches her shoulder when she's drifting off to sleep. A voice whispering her name. And everyone knows what happened. So when a pupil is found dead, Mallory's name is on their lips. Her past can be forgotten but it's never gone. Can Mallory live with that?

Why I'm waiting:  Megan Miranda stunned me with her debut novel Fracture earlier this year.  (And now that I know she's writing the story from Decker's POV, I'm dying of excitement, even though she told me in an interview that she wasn't planning on writing any more of Delaney's story.  Well, I guess, technically she's's Decker's story.  :P)  Anyway, Hysteria sounds like it's in the same vein as Fracture in that it's a psychological thriller with a paranormal edge to it.  Sounds right up my alley, right?  And that cover is freaking awesome!

So, what are you desperately waiting on this week?  Give me a reason to add yet another book to my already-massive TBR...I dare you!  :D
