Waiting on Wednesday (96)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"Such Wicked Intent"
by Kenneth Oppel
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Release Date: Aug 21, 2012

The following description is from goodreads.com:

When does obsession become madness? Tragedy has forced sixteen-year-old Victor Frankenstein to swear off alchemy forever. He burns the Dark Library. He vows he will never dabble in the dark sciences again—just as he vows he will no longer covet Elizabeth, his brother's betrothed.

If only these things were not so tempting.

When he and Elizabeth discover a portal into the spirit world, they cannot resist. Together with Victor's twin, Konrad, and their friend Henry, the four venture into a place of infinite possibilities where power and passion reign. But as they search for the knowledge to raise the dead, they unknowingly unlock a darkness from which they may never return.
I have been wanting to read the first book in this series since it came out, and now there is a sequel with a fantastic cover and a great synopsis! Can't wait to read both books!

What are you waiting for this week???

I had never heard of this book and I don't think I had heard of a story quite like this either!

I hope you can read it soon!
