Waiting on Wednesday (8/16/2017)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by  Jill from Breaking The Spine that shows the upcoming books that many of us are anticipating! This week, I’m waiting for…


Title:  When I Cast Your Shadow

Author: Sarah Porter

Expected Publication:  September 12th 2017

Publisher:  Tor Teen

Goodreads Summary:

A teenage girl calls her beloved older brother back from the grave with disastrous consequences.

Dashiell Bohnacker was hell on his family while he was alive. But it’s even worse now that he’s dead….

After her troubled older brother, Dashiell, dies of an overdose, sixteen-year-old Ruby is overcome by grief and longing. What she doesn’t know is that Dashiell’s ghost is using her nightly dreams of him as a way to possess her body and to persuade her twin brother, Everett, to submit to possession as well.

Dashiell tells Everett that he’s returned from the Land of the Dead to tie up loose ends, but he’s actually on the run from forces crueler and more powerful than anything the Bohnacker twins have ever imagined….

When I Cast Your Shadow

I discovered Sarah Porter last year when I first saw her at the Texas Teen Book Festival in Austin, Texas. Then I finally read her book Vassa in the Night that came in one of my YA book box subscriptions the following month. It definitely took me awhile to get used to her writing style, but I am really excited to see how I’ll like this book. The premise sounds like it’ll be just as weird and twisty as Vassa in the Night, and I am looking forward to reading this.

What are you waiting for this week?


I am currently working on my master's degree in Environmental Science. I am an avid reader as well as a movie enthusiast! I currently live at the bottom of Texas with my husband and three dogs.
