Waiting On Wednesday: Harbinger

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:


Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
Publisher: Putnam's Son's BYR
Genre: Supernatural, Young Adult
Publication Date: Feb. 12, 2012
Girl, Interrupted meets Beautiful Creatures in this fast-paced thriller When sixteen-year-old Faye arrives at Holbrook Academy, she doesn't expect to find herself exactly where she needs to be. After years of strange waking visions and nightmares, her only comfort the bones of dead animals, Faye is afraid she's going crazy. Fast.

But her first night at Holbrook, she feels strangely connected to the school and the island it sits on, like she's come home. She's even made her first real friends, but odd things keep happening to them. Every morning they wake on the floors of their dorm rooms with their hands stained red.

Faye knows she's the reason, but what does it all mean? The handsome Kel tries to help her unravel the mystery, but Faye is certain she can't trust him; in fact, he may be trying to kill her - and the rest of the world too.

Rich, compelling writing will keep the pages turning in this riveting and tautly told psychological thriller.

I had never heard of Harbinger before I came across the book trailer one day, but I was utterly convinced by the trailer alone, that I need to buy this book as soon as it comes out. It looks so creepy and cool; a little disturbing, very mysterious, and extremely dangerous. Pretty much what I hoped Mara Dyer would be, but wasn't. I seriously can't wait to read it!




What are you waiting on?

  1. wow, I see why the trailer got you all excited... it's really good! the part when she wakes up with blood covered hands = creepy! and like Velma from Scooby Doo I'm always up for a good mistery ;)

    Oh btw, the only thing not clicking with me is the old dude playing the love interest. He's hot but too old for the teenage girl.

    Thanks for sharing! I've added it (:

  5. Wow, I normally really don't like trailers but that's a good one (and I sort of agree with melannie, that guy's too old to be her boyfriend) and it does make me want to read the book even more than I do already. Love it!
