Before today's regular post, I'm posting my very first "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a book blogging feature like Top Ten Tuesday, which I started participating in yesterday. "Waiting On" Wednesday was created by Breaking the Spine and in it, bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited.
I actually have a list each year of new YA releases I'm particularly invested in getting my hands on; those of which I didn't read within the year end up as the "Eager To Read" books in my Best YA Books of the Year roundup. I'm excited to get the chance to share them throughout the year instead, so that you can look out for them as well!
So here's the next upcoming YA from the top of my TBR.
THE ACCIDENT SEASON
Releases 18 August 2015 from Corgi Children's
It's the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom.
The accident season has been part of seventeen-year-old Cara's life for as long as she can remember. Towards the end of October, foreshadowed by the deaths of many relatives before them, Cara's family becomes inexplicably accident-prone. They banish knives to locked drawers, cover sharp table edges with padding, switch off electrical items--but injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever-growing obsession and fear.
But why are they so cursed? And how can they break free?

I'm really drawn to the premise: the idea of a family being cursed with an "accident season" where they have to be careful not to get injured or killed. I'd like to see how it all unwinds in this book!
