This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Title: Paper Valentine
Author: Brenna Yovanoff
Release Date: January 8th 2013
Add It: Goodreads

PAPER VALENTINE, in which a girl haunted by the troubled ghost of her best friend finds herself sucked into a darkly mesmerizing string of murders, in which a serial killer who leaves a paper-heart ‘valentine’ on his victims’ bodies draws ever closer.

First for all THAT COVER. Super pretty! I’ve briefly talked about my love for all things true crime before so serial killers are right up my alley. I read Yovanoff’s last work The Space Between and found it pretty enjoyable and original so I’m looking forward to reading more from her.

    EEEEEEEEE I can’t wait for Paper Valentine too! I’ve read The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff (which is called Smoulder in UK/AUS) and I LOVED IT! Brenna’s writing was very beautiful and the book was gorgeous!

    Awesome WoW pick, Kendra! ♥
