Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a blog meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming books.

This week's WoW selection is:

Only the Good Die Young by Chris Marie Green

Publisher: Roc
Date: February 2014

You know the theory that ghosts are energy trapped when someone dies violently? It’s true. I know it for a fact...


My name is Jensen Murphy, and thirty years ago I was just an ordinary California girl. I had friends, family, a guy who might be The One. Ordinary—until I became a statistic, one of the unsolved murders of the year. Afterwards, I didn’t go anywhere in pursuit of any bright light—I stayed under the oak tree where my body was found, and relived my death, over an over. So when a psychic named Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of that loop into the real world, I was very grateful.

So I’m now a ghost-at-large—rescued by Amanda (I found out) to be a supernatural snoop. I’m helping her uncover a killer (not mine—she promises me we’ll get to that) which should be easy for a spirit. Except that I’ve found out that even ghosts have enemies, human—and otherwise…


I have to give a hat-tip to Book Chick City for this particular find. I am in an urban fantasy mood right now (recommendations for current releases welcome) and the description of "Only the Good Die Young" is just what I'm looking for. Too bad I have to wait until next year to read it... :(

I'm looking forward to this one too. I marked it on my calendar as soon as I saw it on All Things UF's Pinterest board.

I find urban fantasy is hit or miss for me, depending on how much 'fantasy' is in it, but this looks interesting.

Here's what I'm waiting on this week.

I do wonder about this one, her being a ghost and all
