Waiting on Wednesday VI

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine showcasing books we're all eagerly anticipating. My pick this week is:

Possess by Gretchen McNeil
Publishing Date: 23rd August
Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Description (from Goodreads)

Fifteen-year-old Bridget Liu just wants to be left alone: by her mom, but the cute son of a local police sergeant, and by the eerie voices she can suddenly and inexplicably hear. Unfortunately for Bridget, it turns out the voices are demons – and Bridget has the rare ability to banish them back to whatever hell they came from. 

Terrified to tell people about her new power, Bridget confides in a local priest who enlists her help in increasingly dangerous cases of demonic possession. But just as she is starting to come to terms with her new power, Bridget receives a startling message from one of the demons. Now Bridget must unlock the secret to the demons' plan before someone close to her winds up dead – or worse, the human vessel of a demon king

My thoughts:

Firstly, how completely beautiful is that cover???? I'm not usually that bothered about covers, I enjoy pretty ones, but I wont pick a book (or reject one) solely on the basis of it's cover. Some of the best books I've read I've hated the covers for *cough*mortalinstrumentsseries*cough*. But this is just GORGEOUS.  I NEED IT IN MY LIIIIIIIIIFEEE

Secondly, the story sounds totally awesome. Kinda different and interesting. A bit like Constantine, but better. 

Thirdly, I recently won some Possess swag from Gretchen which I am SO excited to receive!! My first *ever* swag win!!

Gretchen's also giving away an ARC copy on the 23rd of each month!! I don't know why I'm telling you, cause the less of you enter, the better my chances of winning are :P But it's definitely worth checking out. Gretchen McNeil's blog can be found here

    Not only the cover, from the synopsis, the story inside seems frightening.
