"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over 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:

Mackie Doyle seems like everyone else in the perfect little town of Gentry, but he is living with a fatal secret - he is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now the creatures under the hill want him back, and Mackie must decide where he really belongs and what he really wants.

Totally grabbed by the cover and then intriguied more by the summary.  This just sounds creepy!

It sounds great. I was also drawn in by the cover, then read the summary and just had to add to my wishlist. I wish I'd received an ARC or something...

This week I am waiting on Crossing the Tracks by Barbara Stuber.

As much as it sounds good and I want to read it, the whole changeling thing TOTALLY creeps me out!!! I just read a book recently with a changeling and it's just so freaky to think about. I'll probably read it but I'm gonna be scared! LOL

My WoW is here.

It's definitely got the creep factor. Reminds me a bit of Holly Black's Tithe with the baby swapping bit. I'll have to see when it comes out if there are any other similarities. Great pick!
