Waiting on Wednesday (42) - From Bad to Cursed by Katie Alender12:00 PM
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
Summary (from Goodreads):
Alexis is the last girl you'd expect to sell her soul for beauty and popularity. After all, she already has everything she needs--an adorable boyfriend, the perfect best friend, and a family that finally seems to be healing after her sister Kasey's unfortunate possession by an evil spirit.I'm really looking forward to reading From Bad to Cursed, the long awaited second novel for the trilogy! The first novel, Bad Girls Don't Die, was such an awesome creepy read so I definitely can't wait to see what Katie Alender brings to the table with this one... especially after two years of waiting for this novel.
But then Kasey tells Alexis about the mysterious new club she has joined, and the oath she has taken to someone named Aralt. Worried that Kasey's gotten in over her head again, Alexis and her best friend Megan decide to investigate by joining the Sunshine Club, too. At first, their connection with Aralt seems harmless. Alexis tries a new -- normal-- look, and finds herself reveling in her elegance and success.
Still, despite the Sunshine Club's outward perfection, the group is crumbling from within, and soon Alexis finds herself battling her own personal demons. She can hardly even remember why she joined in the first place. Surely it wasn't to destroy Aralt...why would she hurt someone who has given her so much, and asked for so little in return?
But oh my goodness, I don't think I can stare at this cover for too long before I shiver. Did you look closely at the girl's expression in the cover? So scary!
