Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books you’re excited about with other readers and bloggers.
In celebration of San Diego Comic Con, which begins TONIGHT, I’ve picked a book that I hope to get this week, and even better, author Courtney Alameda will be signing it! I’m very excited about this book:
Shutter by Courtney Alameda. Releases in 2015 by Feiwel & Friends. This book sounds like fun, it’s about a girl who exorcises ghosts with a camera. Cool, right? And check out the creepy cover! Here’s what the story is about (from Goodreads):
Micheline Helsing is a tetrachromat—a girl who sees the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet, the spiritual undead by the lens. With an analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She’s aided by her crew: Oliver, a techno-whiz and the boy who developed her camera’s technology; Jude, who can predict death; and Ryder, the boy Micheline has known and loved forever.
When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain. As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn’t exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends will die. Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, Leonard Helsing, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she’s faced before . . . or die trying.
Lock, stock, and lens, she’s in for one hell of a week.
Let me know what you’re waiting on:-)
