Introducing February's #WednesdayYA Book Club pick: Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan!

Last week, we asked you to vote on February's #WednesdayYA book club pick, and you guys wasted no time in showing a clear preference, so this month, we'll be reading...

UNSPOKEN by Sarah Rees Brennan
Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?

I have to say, I'm pretty excited that this one won, because though I bought it on cover appeal I wanted it on pure cover appeal* (silhouettes!), I've heard endless good things about it, and am definitely curious! I probably should have been pulling for one of the other choices, Sisters Red, because I could have used the review in Fairy Tale Fortnight, but I don't even currr, I'm ready for this one!

But also . . . um - guys?
. . . should we be worried? O_O

Anyway, if you've been meaning to read Unspoken, or even if you haven't, but are like, Oooh, bookclub!, feel free to join Liz and I throughout the month of February as we read and discuss this book for #WednesdayYA!  And if you've already read it, feel free to chime in throughout February, and join us for the twitter chat on the 19th.

Now, before I let you go, I have one question: What would YOU like to see for next week's #WYA post? For Shatter Me, I did an excerpt vlog and an instagram quote post - would you like to see one of those, or is there some other way you'd like me to feature Unspoken this month? 

Let me know in the comments, and I'm looking forward to chatting with you guys about this Wednesdays throughout February!

*Edit: Liz bought this for me, in her ever-fantasticness. ;)
