Waiting on Wednesday

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

My pick this week is Hourglass by Myra McEntire (May 24, 2011)


"Since the age of fourteen, Emerson Cole has seen strange things - dead things - swooning Southern Belles, soldiers, and other eerie apparitions of the past. She's tried everything to get rid of the visions: medication, counseling, asylums. Nothing's worked.

So when Emerson's well-meaning brother calls in yet another consultant from a mysterious organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to give it one last try.

Michael Weaver is no ordinary consultant. He's barely older than she is; he listens like no one she's ever met before; and he doesn't make her feel the least bit crazy. As Emerson ventures deeper into the world of the Hourglass, she begins to learn the truth about her past, her future--and her very life.

A seductive time-slip novel that merges the very best of the paranormal and science fiction genres, Myra McEntire's Hourglass is a stunning debut from an author to watch."

I admit with this one I have been wooed by the cover. The summary is pretty interesting and looks different (which is a good thing) but it's the cover that has me captivated. It's beautiful, weird, and even a little creepy.
What's your pick this week?


  1. This is a book on many TBRs I think ^_^. At least I know its on mine and I can't wait to read it. Also love the new music on the mixpod! Keep 'em comin'!

  2. @Sandy - I always wonder if anyone listens to the I wanted to put Florence & the Machine and Lyyke Li on ther too but the songs I wanted weren't available :-(

  3. I'm not sure about this one. I think maybe it's the cover that kind of freaks me out. I'm going to have to wait and see some review on this one first. But thanks for the post, I keep seeing it popping up on blogs more and more
