Waiting on Wednesday #31

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted at Breaking the Spine. Here is the upcoming release that I'm not-so-patiently waiting for! 

This Wednesday I'm waiting on Omens by Kelley Armstrong, which comes out next Tuesday, August 20. Kelley is my absolute favorite author, and I've read the first chapter of this novel already (it was posted on her website), and it was AMAZING (of course)! Happily I don't have long to wait before I can get my hands on this one.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong begins her new series with Omens, featuring a compelling new heroine thrust into a decades-old murder case and the dark mysteries surrounding her strange new home. 

Twenty-four-year-old Olivia Taylor Jones has the perfect life. The only daughter of a wealthy, prominent Chicago family, she has an Ivy League education, pursues volunteerism and philanthropy, and is engaged to a handsome young tech firm CEO with political ambitions.

But Olivia’s world is shattered when she learns that she’s adopted. Her real parents? Todd and Pamela Larsen, notorious serial killers serving a life sentence. When the news brings a maelstrom of unwanted publicity to her adopted family and fiancĂ©, Olivia decides to find out the truth about the Larsens.

Olivia ends up in the small town of Cainsville, Illinois, an old and cloistered community that takes a particular interest in both Olivia and her efforts to uncover her birth parents’ past.

Aided by her mother’s former lawyer, Gabriel Walsh, Olivia focuses on the Larsens’ last crime, the one her birth mother swears will prove their innocence. But as she and Gabriel start investigating the case, Olivia finds herself drawing on abilities that have remained hidden since her childhood, gifts that make her both a valuable addition to Cainsville and deeply vulnerable to unknown enemies. Because there are darker secrets behind her new home and powers lurking in the shadows that have their own plans for her.


  1. OooooOooo, I didn't know Kelley Armstrong had a new series coming out! This one sounds pretty cool. I like the whole murder mystery thing it's got going on!

  2. I read Kelley Armstrong's YA series... The Darkest Powers series, or something. I wasn't a huge fan of that series, so I never read another book of hers! I kind of want to read her adult books though... they sound interesting ;)

    I hope you read and enjoy this book sometime! :D

  3. I haven't actually read anything by Kelley Armstrong, but this seems really interesting!

    Here's mine

  4. I picked up a couple of Kelley's books back when I was in college several years ago, and I have loved every one that I've picked up since. This one looks just as good!

    I'd love for you to stop by and check out
