Waiting on Wednesday #67

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by, Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on! 

Title: Marie Antoinette Serial Killer
Author: Katie Alender
Release Date: October 2013
Publisher: Scholastic Press

Colette Iselin is excited to go to Paris on a class trip. She’ll get to soak up the beauty and culture, and maybe even learn something about her family’s French roots. 

But a series of gruesome murders are taking place across the city, putting everyone on edge. And as she tours museums and palaces, Colette keeps seeing a strange vision: a pale woman in a ball gown and powdered wig, who looks suspiciously like Marie Antoinette. 

Colette knows her popular, status-obsessed friends won’t believe her, so she seeks out the help of a charming French boy. Together, they uncover a shocking secret involving a dark, hidden history. When Colette realizes she herself may hold the key to the mystery, her own life is suddenly in danger . . .

Everything about this book sounds perfect for me!  What sounds like a serial killing ghost in France who also happens to resemble-and may possibly be- Marie Antoinette???  I enjoyed Bad Girls Don't Die and it totally creeped me out, so I'm really looking forward to this one!

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?  

By the way, if you're looking to get your hands on an ARC of Unremembered by Jessica Brody, check out my giveaway!
