Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:
Genre: Thriller, YA
Publisher: Doubleday Canada
Anticipated Publication Date: October 13, 2015
Riley Vasquez is haunted by the brutal murder of the couple she was babysitting for.
Max Cross is suffering under the shadow of a life-altering diagnosis he doesn’t dare reveal.
The last thing either of them wants is to spend a weekend away at a therapy camp alongside five other teens with “issues.” But that’s exactly where they are when three masked men burst in to take the group hostage.
The building has no windows. The exits are sealed shut. Their phones are gone. And their captors are on a killing spree.
Riley and Max know that if they can’t get out, they’ll be next—but they’re about to discover that even escape doesn’t equal freedom.
Oh my goodness, I’m so excited about this! Anyone who’s heard me speak about books even once knows that I adore Kelley Armstrong because a) her books do it for me b) I love her characters and c) Canadian pride. Many of Armstrong’s books take place in or are inspired by Canada and THE MASKED TRUTH is no exception. Inspired by the wilderness of the Yukon, Canada’s westernmost territory, landscape plays a huge role in this psychological thriller.
While I’ve never been a big reader of thrillers, I will happily read whatever Kelley Armstrong sees fit to write. All the better that it’s inspired by Canada! And who can say no to a standalone by one of their favourite authors? Not this girl!
Have you ever read a book set in the Yukon? What books are you waiting on this week? I’d love to hear from you!
