What I’m waiting on


Creed

Creed
Trisha Leaver & Lindsay Currie
Paperback: 336 pages
Publisher: Flux
Release Date: November 8, 2014

Dee Langley is seventeen and mere months away from total freedom and a life where state social workers, counselors, and foster parents don’t dictate her every move. She has spent years trying to eke out a normal existence, hiding from her past and walking the tenuous line between denial and self-preservation. A weekend away with her boyfriend, Luke, and his brother, Mike, seems like the perfect opportunity to forget and start over. Little does Dee know that she's just trading one hell for another.

When an unexpected storm and a lack of gas force their car off the road, Dee, Luke, and Mike find themselves with no other choice but to wander into the nearby town of Purity Springs for help. But it’s not good Samaritans they find, but rather complete and utter silence, every store and every house abandoned. Forced to seek shelter in one of the deserted homes, they uncover a disturbing book with explicit instructions on how to correctly rear a child, complete with a hand written record of its use. It’s not until the next morning, however, that they discover the alarming truth – the town isn’t abandoned; it is populated by a deadly cult, and the leader, Elijah Hawkins, has plans for the three of them. The group’s only hope for survival lies in the hands of Elijah’s son, Joseph. But is Joseph really their ticket to freedom or is his game just as deadly as his father’s?

Three went in, and three will come out, but not a single one will ever be a shadow of who they once were.


Why I HATE waiting


Y’all this does not come out till November, but I so want to read it for Spooking The Spine this year. From the description it sounds like the suspense is going to have me biting all my nails off. And I may get so scared while reading it that Creed may have to go in the freezer from time to time… (Those of you who loved the show Friends get the book in the freezer reference, right?!?!) But I want to read this one BAD!!!


I am both scared and excited to get my hands on this book.

Is Creed on your to read list?
Can’t wait to see what books you are wanting this week?
