I'm sorry for that last, silent week. I've been extremely sick with severe pelvic pain, in and out of the ER and Urgent Care and to doctors. We're fairly sure now that I have interstitial cystitis, a bladder inflammation disorder that shows up a lot with fibromyalgia, and that I went into a bad flare after a couple years without treatment and a less-than-favorable diet. To confirm, I'm having a cytoscopy on Friday. Basically my health is shot right now, and I feel awful, but I'm just trying to pull through. There is hope in sight.
It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA/MG novel from the top of my TBR list!
TO CATCH A KILLER
Releases 7 February 2017 from Tor Teen
Erin Blake has one of those names. A name that, like Natalee Holloway or Elizabeth Smart, is inextricably linked to a grisly crime. As a toddler, Erin survived for three days alongside the corpse of her murdered mother, and the case—which remains unsolved—fascinated a nation. Her father's identity unknown, Erin was taken in by her mother's best friend and has become a relatively normal teen in spite of the looming questions about her past.
Fourteen years later, Erin is once again at the center of a brutal homicide when she finds the body of her biology teacher. When questioned by the police, Erin tells almost the whole truth, but never voices her suspicions that her mother's killer has struck again in order to protect the casework she's secretly doing on her own.
Inspired by her uncle, an FBI agent, Erin has ramped up her forensic hobby into a full-blown cold-case investigation. This new murder makes her certain she's close to the truth, but when all the evidence starts to point the authorities straight to Erin, she turns to her longtime crush (and fellow suspect) Journey Michaels to help her crack the case before it's too late.

I'm always ready for a good thriller, whether it be adult or YA, and this looks like one that I'll enjoy. Smart teen girl trying to find her own answers, a dark past, lots at stake--great stuff! Thanks for checking in and I'll see you Saturday, hopefully, the day after my cystoscopy/hydrodistension procedure. (Yikes.) (Almost managed it.)
What book are you looking forward to today?
