Waiting on Wednesday (3)

WoW is a weeky meme hosted by Jill at 'Breaking the Spine'. All we do here is bring attention to a book we can't wait to be released, mostly in the hopes that we can share the pain of waiting for a book. 

This week's pick is one I've been dying to read:

Her Dark Curiosity (The Madman's Daughter #2)
by Megan Shepherd
Expected Publication: January 28th, 2014
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Genre: YA, Romance, Retelling

To defeat the darkness, she must first embrace it.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau returned to civilization after escaping her father's island—and the secrets she left behind. Now, back in London once more, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau’s horrific legacy—though someone, or something, hasn’t forgotten her.

As people close to Juliet fall victim one by one to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father’s creations may have also escaped the island. She is determined to find the killer before Scotland Yard does, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again.

As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in the midst of a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer—Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.

With inspiration from Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this is a tantalizing mystery about the hidden natures of those we love and how far we’ll go to save them from themselves.

Ever since I first read The Madman's Daughter, I knew I needed this book as soon as possible. The first book was just so creepily awesome, though people who're vegetarians or vegans because they love animals should probably stay really far away from this entire series. I, however, am an omnivore, and trust me, I'd bribe the author and publisher for an ARC if I could.

    1. You're welcome:) And I would, but unfortunately (though I'm still proud of it), I haven't given into the Facebook craze yet. Sorry!
