Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
It’s been awhile since I’ve read a book centered around dance… In fact, I don’t even know if I’ve ever read a dance-centered book. So excited!
Unlovely by Celeste Conway
Accidents happen. But they happen more often when the beautiful ballet dancers return each summer to the island. When he hears the ruthless way that the loveliest dancer talks about boys getting what they deserve when they break girls’ hearts, Harley, home for the summer after his first year of college, wonders if he’s losing his mind. He knows for sure that he’s losing his heart to this girl…But then, strange incidents start happening all over the island and Harley is caught between desire and fear: could he also be in danger of losing his life?
• Unlovely is narrated in dark mystery wrapped around a world teens love, that of dancers and dancing.
• Bewitching writing, an eerie story, and a here-and-now thriller, combine for a captivating read of love, loyalty, and dark revenge
• Celeste Conway’s book The Melting Season was featured by the New York Public Library as among 2006’s best teen reads. She also has written two middle-grade novels and teaches writing at Berkley College

Will Be Available: January 2, 2015
Say what? The perfect combination of romance and horror, you say? Betwitching and eerie, you say? Be right back, grabbing my keys and dashing out the door to catch a flight to beg Celeste Conway to give me an ARC of this book. This one looks hauntingly beautiful. Can’t wait to get my grubby little fingers on this one. Plus, the cover is gorgeous.
