Wishlist Wednesday: Velveteen

Velveteen by Daniel Marks
Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads
Paranormal, 464 pages
Expected publication: October 9th 2012 by Random House BYR
Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that's not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it's not a fiery inferno, it's certainly no heaven. It's gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn't leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what's really on her mind.


Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she's figured out just how to do it. She'll haunt him for the rest of his days.
It'll be brutal . . . and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen's obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she's willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can't help herself when it comes to breaking rules . . . or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

I have been waiting for this one to have a cover so that I could share it with you for WW.  Pretty much been wishing for it since I first heard about it because Daniel Marks (aka dannymarksya, for those of you who follow his Youtube channel or his appearances on YA Rebels) has this deliciously twisted brain that I just can't wait to get a taste of.  Doesn't this description just make you want to read this right now?  
Can't. Wait.

What are you wishing and hoping for this Wednesday?


  1. I am beyond thrilled for this to come out. I may pre-order this just because and I never do that. This looks dark and twisted and perfect for Halloween. I follow Danny on twitter and YouTube and he is awesome!

  2. Too dark for me but cool find. The summary makes me think of Lovely Bones.

  3. Agh! This one is tops on my own wishlist and has been for quite some time! I'm so excited!

  4. RIGHT?!?! Dude, I am DYING for this one!!!!

  5. Wow. I'm not usually a fan of psychotic romantic vengeful novels but this sounds... interesting. Adding to my TBR! :D

    Here's my WoW for this week :)


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
