Waiting on Wednesday (90): Break My Heart 1,000 Times + Blink Once

I am so stoked! I'm in for a 5-day vacation! And no, this is not yet a scheduled post. So check out the books we are highlighting this week! I think there's a theme going on in our choices, and we swear it is a coincidence!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: Break My Heart 1,000 Times by Daniel Waters
Release Date: October 16th 2012
Published by: Hyperion Book CH

Summary (from Goodreads):

Living in the aftermath of the Event means that seeing the dead is now a part of life, but Veronica wishes that the ghosts would just move on. Instead, the ghosts aren’t disappearing—they’re gaining power.

When Veronica and her friend, Kirk, decide to investigate why, they stumble upon a more sinister plot than they ever could have imagined. One of Veronica’s high school teachers is crippled by the fact that his dead daughter has never returned as a ghost, and he’s haunted by the possibility that she’s waiting to reappear within a fresh body. Veronica seems like the perfect host. And even if he’s wrong, what’s the harm in creating one more ghost?

From critically acclaimed Generation Dead author Daniel Waters, comes a delectably creepy and suspenseful thriller. Break My Heart 1,000 Times will leave readers with the chills. Or is that a ghost reading over the page?

Why I'm waiting for Break My Heart 1,000 Times:


This is a perfect example of a novel with a title that will make one anticipate it even when it's still months away from release. What is the "Event"? And ghosts taking over bodies? Now that is creepy! And that last line made me turn and look. I think I'm ready for a little scary read!


Title: Blink Once by Cylin Busby
Release Date: September 4th 2012
Published by: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Summary (from Goodreads):

West is a high school senior who has everything going for him until an accident leaves him paralyzed. Strapped down in his hospital bed, slipping in and out of consciousness, West is terrified and alone. Until he meets Olivia. She’s the girl next door—sort of. A patient in the room next to his, only Olivia can tell what West is thinking, and only Olivia seems to know that the terrible dreams he’s been having are not just a result of his medication. Yet as West comes to rely on Olivia—to love her, even—certain questions pull at him: Why has Olivia been in the hospital for so long? And what does it mean that she is at the center of his nightmares? But the biggest question of all comes when West begins to recover and learns that the mysterious girl he’s fallen in love with has a secret he could never have seen coming.

Why I'm waiting for Blink Once:

I'm in the mood for a little YA contemporary slash mystery thriller and this one just sounds like it. Is Olivia a ghost? That's the first thing that I thought of, but I love a good mystery! And I don't know about any of you but that title gives me the chills...

So what are you waiting for this week? Share your links please!

  3. Both books sound great, especially Blink Once - I'm adding that one to my TBR wishlist right now. Love your choices, I haven't seen either one before. :)

  4. Break My Heart 1,000 Time sounds interesting. Kind of like Shade where an event allows people to see ghosts. But they are also stealing bodies. I'm very intrigued by Blink Once. I'm also wondering what is up with Olivia. Is she a ghost, angel, reaper? Is he dreaming everything? So many possibilities. Very creepy!

  10. The first one reminds me a tiny bit of SHADE by Jeri Smith-Ready, but since I've only read the first book of that series, I can't be completely sure. But both of these sound really mysterious and interesting, so thanks a lot for sharing! :)
