Waiting on Wednesday (120)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I am super excited for The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White! The description of the book doesn't give too much away, but combined with my basic Frankenstein knowledge, I assume it will be creepy and involve the undead (of sorts). Add in the cover, with the mottled skin and haphazard stitches, it just gets more creepy. While I'm not the biggest fan of creepy, I love Kiersten White and will read anything she writes!


Elizabeth Lavenza hasn't had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her "caregiver," and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything--except a friend.

Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable--and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable.

But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth's survival depends on managing Victor's dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.
