Weekly Obsessions

The awesome Kelly at KellyVision started posting a weekly post highlighting whatever she happened to be obsessed with that week. I LOVE this idea, so much in fact that I will be doing it myself every Saturday.

Here are my obsessions this week:


Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne

So I saw this cover in the publisher catalog while browsing. I think it's the official cover, but it's not released yet. I couldn't wait to share it though. I LOVE IT! It looks creepy, and awesome. The Goodreads synopsis is also pretty exciting (and shudder inducing)...
Sawyer Dodd has it all. She's a star track athlete, choir soloist, and A-student. And her boyfriend is the handsome all-star Kevin Anderson. But behind the medals, prom pictures, and perfect smiles, Sawyer finds herself trapped in a controlling, abusive relationship with Kevin. When he dies in a drunk-driving accident, Sawyer is secretly relieved. She's free. Until she opens her locker and finds a mysterious letter signed by "an admirer" and printed with two simple words: "You're welcome."
I can't wait to read it and I hope it's as good as it sounds.

2013 Novels

Now that 2013 is here I am excited about all the amazing releases to come. 2013 is shaping up to have some of the most fan girl inducing reads. I am already so excited about so many upcoming titles! Clockwork Princess, The Retribution of Mara Dyer, Dance of the Red Death, Isla and the Happily Ever After, Just One Year, and MANY more. Dare I say that 2013 is going to be the BEST year for book lovers?! (This will apply until I say the same thing about 2014).

The Walking Dark by Robin Wasserman

The lovely Brodie at Eleusinian Mysteries brought this book to my attention (Ok, so I stalk her on Goodreads and that's how I found this). It sounds amazing and creepy. I am feeling a creepy trend with books coming up and I LOVE it.

Here is the Goodreads synopsis
They called it the killing day. Twelve people dead, all in the space of a few hours. Five murderers: neighbors, relatives, friends. All of them so normal. All of them seemingly harmless. All of them now dead by their own hand . . . except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town. She doesn't even know why she killed—or whether she'll do it again.

Something is waking in the sleepy town of Oleander's, Kansas—something dark and hungry that lives in the flat earth and the open sky, in the vengeful hearts of upstanding citizens. As the town begins its descent into blood and madness, five survivors of the killing day are the only ones who can stop Oleander from destroying itself. Jule, the outsider at war with the world; West, the golden boy at war with himself; Daniel, desperate for a different life; Cass, who's not sure she deserves a life at all; and Ellie, who believes in sacrifice, fate, and in evil. Ellie, who always goes too far. They have nothing in common. They have nothing left to lose. And they have no way out. Which means they have no choice but to stand and fight, to face the darkness in their town—and in themselves. 
Eeeep! It's a fall release so still quite a bit to wait before reading this one. Thankfully there are many awesome sounding novels coming out this year.


The Following

Now that it is January my thoughts are returning to my shows. Once Upon A Time can not come back fast enough (I miss Killian Jones). Luckily it starts again on Sunday. The other show I am desperate to watch is The Following. Kevin Bacon, Kevin Williamson, and Edgar Allen Poe inspired plot! So excited. I have been hearing how amazing this is, and I fully intend on becoming addicted to this show. January 21st needs to hurry up and get here already.


Ottawa Book Blogger Mix and Mingle

I am busy planning a small little get together for the Ottawa bloggers. An afternoon of bookish talk and making connections with other bloggers is always fun, and I am very much look forward to this one. If you happen to be in the area, check out all the details by visiting the sign up post.

City of Bones read-a-long

I am in the midst of planning a read a long for City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I am hoping to make it a little bit different and fun if everything comes together. I should hopefully be able to announce it next week and start sign ups.

So what are you obsessed with this week?


  1. Hahaha that's how I discovered The Walking Dark too, by stalking people on GR. It's a healthy chain of obsession :D SO excited to read it!!

    Yay for OuAT returning today! And all my other tv addictions this month, I've missed my weekly fix. I'm curious about The Following, so you need to tell me if it's any good.

    I came across Truly, Madly, Deeply only a day or two ago and... WANT WANT WANT.

  2. Adding truly madly deadly. Thanks for the find!
