Waiting on Wed: Mary the summoning by Hillary Monahan


Waiting on Wed is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
It's something that she does every Wed where we pick a book that hasn't been released yet.
Author: Hillary Monahan
Hardcover256 pages
Expected publication: September 2nd 2014 by Disney-Hyperion
Jess had done the research. Success requires precision: a dark room, a mirror, a candle, salt, and four teenage girls. Each of them--Jess, Shauna, Kitty, and Anna--must link hands, follow the rules . . . and never let go. 

A thrilling fear spins around the room the first time Jess calls her name: "Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary. BLOODY MARY." A ripple of terror follows when a shadowy silhouette emerges through the fog, a specter trapped behind the mirror. 

Once is not enough, though--at least not for Jess. Mary is called again. And again. But when their summoning circle is broken, Bloody Mary slips through the glass with a taste for revenge on her lips. As the girls struggle to escape Mary's wrath, loyalties are questioned, friendships are torn apart, and lives are forever altered.

A haunting trail of clues leads Shauna on a desperate search to uncover the legacy of Mary Worth. What she finds will change everything, but will it be enough to stop Mary--and Jess--before it's too late?


Why I chose this:
Ii was browsing through goodreads earlier, and happened upon a few books that looked really good. This was the first one that caught my eye. It looks spooky, and I'm always interested in bloody Mary tellings. It reminds me of the supernatural episode with it. I'm always for a good scare!

  10. Loved it! I have always been intrigued by Bloody Mary since I was little and when I saw this book I was hoping it was as good as the cover. It was better! I loved to read it in bed at night before I fell asleep. I love horror and this one was great!
