Waiting on Wednesday (48)

Waiting on Wednesday/s are hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine in which you choose a book or books that you're excited and waiting for.
This week's Waiting on Wednesday book is...

Title: Wink Poppy Midnight
Author: April Genevieve Tucholke
Publisher: Dial Books
Publication date: March 22nd 2016
Pre-Order the book: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

The intrigue of The Virgin Suicides and the "supernatural or not" question of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer coalesce in this young adult mystery, where nothing is quite as it seems, no one is quite who you think, and everything can change on a dime.

Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.

For fans of Holly Black, We Were Liars, and The Raven Boys, this mysterious tale full of intrigue, dread, beauty, and a whiff of something strange will leave you utterly entranced.

Reasons for why I'm excited for this book:

1) The blurb is crazy intriguing, reading it is making me all kinds of curious as to what may happen in the novel. Nothing like a good mystery with unreliable narrators to keep your mind and interest going.
2) So many praises from the all reviews I've seen so far which is always a good sign. But more than that, in my opinion, it's hard to deliver a novel with a twisty prose and the fact that April G. Tucholke got all kinds of great reviews with Wink Poppy Midnight is amazing so color me impressed (and very excited).
3) The overall package of the book is one of the things that really struck me about it, from its trippy yet gorgeous cover to the incredible fascinating blurb, Wink Poppy Midnight just screams "This book will mess you up, in the best way possible".
