Waiting on Wednesday 227

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:

"Thorn Abbey"
by Nancy Ohlin
Simon Pulse
Release Date: May 7, 2013

The following description is from goodreads.com:

Nothing is as it seems in this darkly romantic tale of infatuation and possession, inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca.Becca was the perfect girlfriend: smart, gorgeous, and loved by everyone at New England’s premier boarding school, Thorn Abbey. But Becca’s dead. And her boyfriend, Max, can’t get over his loss.

Then Tess transfers to Thorn Abbey. She’s shy, insecure, and ordinary—everything that Becca wasn’t. And despite her roommate’s warnings, she falls for brooding Max.

Now Max finally has a reason to move on. Except it won’t be easy. Because Becca may be gone, but she’s not quite ready to let him go…
I am a sucker for books based on the classics. Especially if they bring a new edge to a classic story. What do you think?

What are you waiting for this week???


  1. Looks great. I don't do much HF, but it intrigues me. Hope you get to read it soon!

  2. I really should read the original first :)

  3. I've never read the book it's based on but it sounds darkly romantic and like it has the potential for uber-creepiness :) Great pick!
