"Waiting On" Wednesday - Bleeding Violet


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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
Release date: January 2010 by Simon Pulse

Sixteen-year-old Hanna Järvinen is an unusual girl with a head full of hallucinations, a medicine cabinet full of pills, and a closet full of frilly, violet dresses. Everything a girl needs--except love. But that's what mothers are for, and Hanna is sure she can reconcile with hers, even though she was abandoned as a baby.

Unfortunately, her mother lives in Portero, an odd East Texas town with doors that lead out of the world, flesh-eating creatures, and parasitical spirits--not an ideal environment for winning a mother's love.

Hanna, however, refuses to let a few monsters interfere with her plans. If she has to flirt a little, lie a little, kill a little, or even bleed a little, she'll do it. Hanna can live with monsters and mayhem, but she would rather die than live without love. 

Have you seen a theme in my WoW posts lately?  They have all had something to do with the color purple.  I just love it and I'm so psyched to see all these covers using purple.  This story is different.  Just read the synopsis...oooh!  Sounds interesting; can't wait!

Great choice. This one is already on my wishlist. Oh, and I agree with purple remarks. ;)

Well, I guess I won't be moving to Portero any time soon after reading what you wrote about the inhabitants! Thanks for the good descriptive info! No wonder you can't wait to read it!
