Waiting on Wednesday (#16)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights any upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on. Here's mine for this week!

Title: Sweet Damage
Author: Rebecca James
Publisher: Allen and Unwin
Released: April 2013

I still dream about Anna London's house.

In my dreams the house is more than it was in life; the building taller and more imposing, the hallways longer and more labyrinthine, the inside colder and darker than the real thing ever was.

Anna is sometimes in these dreams, lingering ghost-like and elusive ahead of or behind me, and no matter how much I chase her or call her name, I can never reach her.

In my dreams it's as if the house itself has sinister intentions. In real life, though, it wasn't the house that was responsible for what happened there. It was the people who did the damage.

Summary taken from GoodReads

Eep!  The first thing that caught me when I first saw this way back when was the title.  It sounds mysterious and I love it when words are juxtaposed like they are here to create a certain...something.  And while the cover may not be all that eye-grabbing, it does still kind of highlight the creepiness of the synopsis.

What about you?  What do you think?  Leave me your thoughts and don't forget to link me up!


  1. The cover is creepy. And I like it. I've been reading so many creepy books of late!

  2. This book does sound super creepy Aa'Ishah I like how it hardly gives anything away, I really want to know what's inside that house and just what the people actually did! Thanks for putting this book on my radar! :)

  3. This reminds me of an animal book we own ever since I was a child. In the book, there's a creepy two-page picture of a snake. Every time my sister would open it, I'd cry... the cover elicits traces of that feeling. Great for Halloween!
