My Pick This Week!
Hemlock (Hemlock, #1)

Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.

Since then, Mac’s life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac’s hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy’s killer: A white werewolf.

Lupine syndrome—also known as the werewolf virus—is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy’s murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy’s boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.

Kathleen Peacock’s thrilling novel is the first in the Hemlock trilogy, a spellbinding urban fantasy series filled with provocative questions about prejudice, trust, lies, and love. (Goodreads)

Why I’m Waiting?

First, I really like the cover! Second, It’s been a little while since I’ve tried a YA werewolf or shifter novel. I am excited to see what Hemlock has to offer as I didn’t get through my last YA shifter book:( But, Hemlock sounds seriously good!

What are you waiting for?


  1. Ah! That cover is stunning!! I'm in love :)

    And after reading Fateful by Claudia Gray, I am all about the werewolves!! This story sounds like it is going to be really good-- thanks for sharing, I hadn't heard of this one before, but just went over to Goodreads to add it! ;)

  6. I'm not the biggest fan of werewolves, but I've seen this one around and I've been known to be persuaded by pretty covers. This is a really pretty cover. It seems that I am in the minority about the wolves and I'm sure I'll eventually get to it! (plus, I did like the Mercy Falls books-maybe I should lighten up a bit-I'm sure it's all because I'm Team Edward)



Thanks so much for the comment love!
