"Waiting On" Wednesday - October 7, 2009

This weekly event is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My can't wait to read book is Blacklands by Belinda Bauer:

Release Date: January 5, 2010
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

From publisher:
A psychological thriller about the cat-and-mouse game between a boy desperately seeking the truth about this uncle's murder and the murderer himself.

From Publisher's Weekly website:

Editor Marysue Rucci calls Blacklands “the best psychological suspense I've read in years—think The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time meets The Silence of the Lambs. This novel is fiendishly imaginative and terrifying—and compulsively readable.


  1. Oh I was not familiar with this one;

    here is mine:

  2. Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time meets Silence of the Lambs? Sign me up!

  3. Mel! I have an ARC if this. I do I do!

    Do you want me to loan it to you after I'm done?
    I was excited about this one too and was SUPER excited to get a copy of it.

    Let me know.

  8. Great pick Mel, I will be adding this to my buy list. Thanks for the heads up on this book :)

  9. So glad everyone is liking it! With that comparison I can't help but want to read it :)

    Mary ~ I know what you meal, lol. Silence of the Lambs is a fav of mine though...Anthony Hopkins still freaks me out ;)

  10. I like that cover!! great pick!

  11. This sounds good. I like child protagonists. January is forever away. I hope you get a review copy!
