Waiting on Wednesday: "Jekel Loves Hyde"

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started at Breaking the Spine bookblog, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I usually like to list a few reasons why this book made the top of my 'wish list', but it's purely up to you!
Here's my pick for this week-- I found it on Bookluver--Carol's Reviews the other day, and instantly fell in love with it! The cover, the description, everything! Unfortunately, it won't be out for a while (2010, sometime!) which means not only do we have to wait for it, but there's not a lot of information out on it, hence the reason I don't have the title linked to B&N.
But, here it is anyway-- enjoy!

Title: Jekel Loves Hyde Author: Beth Fantaskey

Genre: YA, Fantasy, Paranormal

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Publication Date: (?) 2010

Summary: Jill Jekel and Tristen Hyde are two high school students who gradually discover that they share a mysterious, possibly dangerous, connection to the old novel, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. As they race against the clock to figure out the puzzle, they start to fall for each other – which is probably the worst thing that could happen to them… *

*I found the summary from an interview the author did here. I do not claim the rights to the words, etc.


I know, there's not a whole lot known about this one yet, but even without having read Beth's first novel, Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, I'm sure I'm going to love it! It's definitely not like a lot of other paranormal books coming out, so that alone grabs my attention. :D Off to work on Friday's posts-- my list of what I received in the mail for the week, along with the list of books I want to read (I'm up to K already!)


Until Next Time, The Book Queen

On August 20, 2009, my new fantasy novel, Gateway to DreamWorld was released.

Synopsis: On their way home from baseball tryouts, Brad Colby and his two sons are involved in a terrible car accident that leaves six-year-old Pete in a coma. When Pete awakens, the family is crushed to learn that he is paralyzed.

Meanwhile, Pete’s eight-year-old brother, Jason, has been having powerful dreams that lead him to a mysterious realm known as DreamWorld. Jason discovers that all of his desires can come true in DreamWorld, but the time is fast approaching when he will have to choose between his two worlds.

And when more devastating news strikes at the heart of the Colby family, Jason and Pete set out on a desperate attempt to find the Gateway to DreamWorld and save their family. With time running out on their dangerous path, will Jason and Pete’s fear of the Unknown keep them from reaching the paradise of their dreams?
