Waiting on Wednesday {#18}

Hosted by Breaking the Spine, a way to share upcoming highly anticipated releases.

My pick this week is Conjure by Lea Nolan with a release date of October 16 by Entangled Publishing.

Be careful what you search for...

Emma Guthrie expects this summer to be like any other in the South Carolina Lowcountry--hot and steamy with plenty of beach time alongside her best friend and secret crush, Cooper Beaumont, and Emma’s ever-present twin brother, Jack. But then a mysterious eighteenth-century message in a bottle surfaces, revealing a hidden pirate bounty. Lured by the adventure, the trio discovers the treasure and unwittingly unleashes an ancient Gullah curse that attacks Jack with the wicked flesh-eating Creep and promises to steal Cooper’s soul on his approaching sixteenth birthday.

When a strange girl appears, bent on revenge; demon dogs become a threat; and Jack turns into a walking skeleton; Emma has no choice but to learn hoodoo magic to undo the hex, all before summer—and her friends--are lost forever.

I decided I need to branch out more with what I read so I picked this YA.  With the talk of Hoodoo, this sounds like a refreshing new concept and I can't wait to see how that comes into play.

What's your WOW???

  1. I've got this one on my list too Emmy :) I haven't read a YA in a couple months and was really caught by the cover on Conjure.

    Hope you enjoy it when it gets here :)
