Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Hi Guys,
This is my first Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) post, and I'm very excited about it, I've wanted to do one for a while now, but I didn't know when to start. Well, that time is NOW! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This Wednesday I'm waiting on:

The Raven Boys
By: Maggie Stiefvater
416 pages
Scholastic Press
September 18th, 2012
The Raven Cycle #1

Goodreads' Synopsis:

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”
It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.
His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

I have the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Stiefvater, I was about half-way through Shiver when I put it down, making it a part of my debt-list. I didn't like Shiver that much, but I believe I will love this book. From the synopsis it sounds AMAZING! In addition to that, the cover is really cool, it looks like it would be more of a guy book, but I don't know. I like the "Gothic" feel to the cover and the synopsis, so I have a feeling I'll like the book as well. I'm anxiously waiting for this novel to be released... are you? Leave a comment about what you think of this book, or what novel you might want to see next week's WoW. Check out this blog next week to see the next novel I'm waiting for.
