All I Want For Christmas Is... (5)
This is a great new meme created by Danya over at A Tapestry of Words. Hop over to her blog on Thursdays and join in the fun!
Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus
His love captivated her... his secrets might kill her.
Since her sister’s mysterious death, Persephone “Phe” Archer has been plagued by a series of disturbing dreams. Determined to find out what happened to her sister, Phe enrolls at Devenish Prep in Shadow Hills, Massachusetts—the subject of her sister’s final diary entry.
After stepping on campus, Phe immediately realizes that there’s something different about this place—an unexplained epidemic that decimated the town in the 1700s, an ancient and creepy cemetery, and gorgeous boy Zach—and somehow she’s connected to it all.
But the more questions she asks and the deeper she digs, the more entangled Phe becomes in the haunting past of Shadow Hills. Finding what links her to this town…might cost her her life.
Intrigue? Check! Romance? Check! Far off places, daring sword fights, a prince in disguise? Well, not exactly but it evokes the same sort of feeling as what Belle was trying to say. This book sounds exciting and even though I'm not wild about the cover, I love the summary and am really hoping to see this one underneath my tree.
So what about you? What are you hoping for?
