Waiting on Wednesday (#7): Shutter

 Waiting on Wednesday  is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that booklovers can't wait to get their hands on!


Title: Shutter
Author: Courtney Alameda
Genre: Young Adult, Horror, Paranormal
Expected Publication Date: February 3rd, 2015

Micheline Helsing is a tetrachromat—a girl who sees the auras of the undead in a prismatic spectrum. As one of the last descendants of the Van Helsing lineage, she has trained since childhood to destroy monsters both corporeal and spiritual: the corporeal undead go down by the bullet, the spiritual undead by the lens. With an analog SLR camera as her best weapon, Micheline exorcises ghosts by capturing their spiritual energy on film. She's aided by her crew: Oliver, a techno-whiz and the boy who developed her camera's technology; Jude, who can predict death; and Ryder, the boy Micheline has known and loved forever.

When a routine ghost hunt goes awry, Micheline and the boys are infected with a curse known as a soulchain. As the ghostly chains spread through their bodies, Micheline learns that if she doesn't exorcise her entity in seven days or less, she and her friends will die. Now pursued as a renegade agent by her monster-hunting father, Leonard Helsing, she must track and destroy an entity more powerful than anything she's faced before . . . or die trying.

Lock, stock, and lens, she’s in for one hell of a week.


Why am I waiting?

It's another Young Adult-Horror book, yay! I mentioned in another WoW post, that I love horror movies and want to try to read some books. I expect to be creeped out and at least a bit scared ... ghost stories can be really scary and I WANT EXACTLY THAT. Just imagine lying in bed late at night, reading "Shutter" while everything is quiet and dark and you're all alone ... god, I'm so excited! And the cover is already spooky - I like it a lot!
