Waiting On Wednesday #4: Velveteen by Daniel Marks

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

Waiting On Wednesday #4: Velveteen by Daniel MarksTitle: Velveteen
Author: Daniel Marks
Expected Publication: 9th October 2012
Publisher: Random House Children’s Books
Goodreads Summary: Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that’s not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it’s not a fiery inferno, it’s certainly no heaven. It’s gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn’t leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what’s really on her mind.


Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she’s figured out just how to do it. She’ll haunt him for the rest of his days.

It’ll be brutal… and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen’s obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she’s willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can’t help herself when it comes to breaking rules… or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

{ My Thoughts }

Staring at a list of ‘upcoming’ releases, I was immediately drawn to Velveteen by it’s cover and silky title. After reading the synopsis I am even more intrigued by this story and I absolutely cannot wait for this to be released. I haven’t read that many books of this nature but it sounds so so good. I’m a little obsessed with stories of Revenge after watching the hit US TV show with that title and Velveteen sounds like she’s a force to be reckoned with!
