[Waiting On Wednesday: Winterkill]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Winterkill"
Author: Kate A. Boorman
Release Date: September 9th, 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary:

Emmeline knows she’s not supposed to explore the woods outside her settlement. The enemy that wiped out half her people lurks there, attacking at night and keeping them isolated in an unfamiliar land with merciless winters. Living with the shame of her grandmother’s insubordination, Emmeline has learned to keep her head down and her quick tongue silent.

When the settlement leader asks for her hand in marriage, it’s an opportunity for Emmeline to wash the family slate clean—even if she has eyes for another. But before she’s forced into an impossible decision, her dreams urge her into the woods, where she uncovers a path she can’t help but follow. The trail leads to a secret that someone in the village will kill to protect. Her grandmother followed the same path and paid the price. If Emmeline isn’t careful, she will be next.

I love how creepy this one sounds. I want to know what's out in the woods and I want to know who this enemy is? Is it a creator? I don't know, but I figure if I read this book, I'll be able to find out!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!
