Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly waiting to read.

This Week:

Wanted: Dead or In Love by Kym Brunner

Wanted: Dead or In Love by Kym Brunner

Release Date: June 30, 2014
Publisher: Merit Press

Impulsive high school senior Monroe Baker is on probation for a recent crime, but strives to stay out of trouble by working as a flapper at her father’s Roaring 20’s dinner show theater. When she cuts herself on one of the spent bullets from her father’s gangster memorabilia collection, she unwittingly awakens Bonnie Parker’s spirit, who begins speaking to Monroe from inside her head.

Later that evening, Monroe shows the slugs to Jack, a boy she meets at a party. He unknowingly becomes infected by Clyde, who soon commits a crime using Jack’s body. The teens learn that they have less than twenty-four hours to ditch the criminals or they’ll share their bodies with the deadly outlaws indefinitely.

Why I’m Waiting
This book is based off Bonnie and Clyde! And their spirits overtake two teenagers in the modern world? This sounds really good! This seems like it’s going to be high stakes with lots of action if the teens have to get rid of the spirits in 24 hours. This will definitely be something unique and unlike anything I’ve read before. Can’t wait!

What are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments!

    It definitely sounds unique and I love the idea of Bonnie and Clyde, but I’m not sure about this one. I’ll keep my eye out for your review before deciding. Lol. I hope you love it!
