"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: House of Ivy & Sorrow by Natalie Whipple which is due to be released on April 15th.
Josephine Hemlock has spent the last 10 years hiding from the Curse that killed her mother. But when a mysterious man arrives at her ivy-covered, magic-fortified home, it’s clear her mother’s killer has finally come to destroy the rest of the Hemlock bloodline. Before Jo can even think about fighting back, she must figure out who she’s fighting in the first place. The more truth Jo uncovers, the deeper she falls into witchcraft darker than she ever imagined. Trapped and running out of time, she begins to wonder if the very Curse that killed her mother is the only way to save everyone she loves.
I love ivy covered houses. As a young girl I begged my mother to stop trimming the ivy creeping up from our foundation so that mine could be a house like out of a book. I have also always had a thing for books about witches and this one has the potential to live up their with my favorites. I can't wait to Whipple's take on magic and curses.
