Wishlist Wednesday #35

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper Blog where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wish-list for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wish-list and onto our wonderful shelves.

Velveteen by Daniel Marks
Hardcover, 464 pages

October 9th 2012 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Goodreads | Amazon | The Book Depository

Velveteen Monroe is dead. At 16, she was kidnapped and murdered by a madman named Bonesaw. But that’s not the problem.

The problem is she landed in purgatory. And while it’s not a fiery inferno, it’s certainly no heaven. It’s gray, ashen, and crumbling more and more by the day, and everyone has a job to do. Which doesn’t leave Velveteen much time to do anything about what’s really on her mind.


Velveteen aches to deliver the bloody punishment her killer deserves. And she’s figured out just how to do it. She’ll haunt him for the rest of his days. 

It’ll be brutal... and awesome.

But crossing the divide between the living and the dead has devastating consequences. Velveteen’s obsessive haunting cracks the foundations of purgatory and jeopardizes her very soul. A risk she’s willing to take—except fate has just given her reason to stick around: an unreasonably hot and completely off-limits coworker.

Velveteen can’t help herself when it comes to breaking rules... or getting revenge. And she just might be angry enough to take everyone down with her.

I have heard some mixed reviews on this but the cover pulls me in! I would definitely buy it just so I could see it sitting on my shelf. The thing that is keeping from buying it is that everyone is saying that the synopsis is misleading. It sounds like it’s all about revenge but I’ve heard it isn’t. I’m so torn!

Have you read this book yet? What are your thoughts on it?
