Waiting on Wednesday #10

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight a book that you’re giddy with excitment to read so that other people can be giddy with excitement too :)

As I run a book and film blog, I do this meme including books and films that I am waiting on. This week I have two books for your viewing pleasure and one film. Hope that you like them too! :D

Summary: (Goodreads)
There’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

Why?: Uuuuh… it sounds AWESOME. And I mean… come on… ZOMBIES! Hehe. I really do just think this sounds brilliant and one that I am looking forward to reading. And the cover is really pretty too, isn’t it? :D hehe.

Why?: I kind of cheated this week again and chose a film that is nearly out but I couldn’t help it because this film just looks amazing! It seems like it’s full of rich emotion and it just looks brilliant. I can’t wait to get to the cinema to watch it! :D
what are you waiting on?

    I’m not big on zombies (even if it DOES take place in local Philly), but I want to see EXTREMELY LOUD & INCREDIBLY CLOSE as well. Or I might want to read the book. Or maybe both. I haven’t decided yet!

    Stopping by for the book blogger love-a-thon! =)

    I really like the cover of this book, particularly her dress. I might have to borrow it from her! I think this book is already on my TBR list. I’ll have to check and add it if it’s not!

    Hi Faye! Thanks for dropping by! :) I’m glad you liked the sound and look of Taste! :) I have this in my wishlist and it sounds so amazing! <3 Great choice!

    I’ve never been big on Zombie novels for some reason, but this one sounds like it mixes just the right amount of YA novel I like with it – definitely going to check it out! I want to see Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close but I don’t think I can handle how much I know I’m going to cry! My friend saw it when it came out in the US and was saying it was just an uncontrollable sobfest. Make sure to bring lots of tissues when you see it!

    Hopping through from the Love-A-Thon, though I’m an old follower :)
