Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Welcome to the eighth Waiting on Wednesday here on my blog! For those of you who don’t know about Waiting on Wednesday, it is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, in which we highlight an upcoming book release we’re eagerly awaiting.
My selection for this Wednesday is Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton, book one in the Blood Journals series. Isn’t the cover gorgeous!? I have read some great reviews about the novel and cannot wait to read this!

From Goodreads:

This page-turning debut novel will entice fans who like their paranormal romances dark and disturbing. It’s a natural next-read for fans of Stephanie Meyer, Carrie Jones, and Becca Fitzpatrick. But instead of mythical creatures, blood magic has everything to do with primal human desires like power, wealth, and immortality. Everywhere Silla Kennicott turns she sees blood. She can’t stop thinking about her parents alleged murder-suicide. She is consumed by a book filled with spells that arrives mysteriously in the mail. The spells share one common ingredient: blood, and Silla is more than willing to cast a few. What’s a little spilled blood if she can uncover the truth? And then there’s Nick—the new guy at school who makes her pulse race. He has a few secrets of his own and is all too familiar with the lure of blood magic. Drawn together by a combination of fate and chemistry, Silla and Nick must find out who else in their small Missouri town knows their secret and will do anything to take the book and magic from Silla.
