Waiting on Wednesday #33

***"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.***

Dark Eyes
by William Richter
Publication Date: March 15th, 2012
Publisher: Razorbill
Get ready for the vigilante girl detective of the next generation.

Wally was adopted from a Russian orphanage as a child and grew up in a wealthy New York City family. At fifteen, her obsessive need to rebel led her to life on the streets.

Now the sixteen-year-old is beautiful and hardened, and she's just stumbled across the possibility of discovering who she really is. She'll stop at nothing to find her birth mother before Klesko—her darkeyed father—finds her. Because Klesko will stop at nothing to reclaim the fortune Wally's mother stole from him long ago. Even if that means murdering his own blood. But Wally's had her own killer training, and she's hungry for justice.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens, this debut thriller introduces our next big series heroine! (Goodreads)

Why am I Waiting on this book???
It sounds really amazing. I haven't had the chance to read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I have heard good things about it. If this is similar, it should make for an awesome read. :)

What are you WoWing for this week? Leave a link so I can check it out!


  1. This sounds very interesting! I haven't read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet either. I thought I was the last person not to. lol

  2. This sounds really good even though I'm not exactly a thriller reader :)
    Thanks for spotlighting it!

  3. That one is new to me. It does sound really great! I haven't read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet, not sure if I plan to.

  4. I made the mistake of watching the movie of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and that completely creeped me out and I never wanted to read the books after that.
    So I'm not completely sure about this one. It does sound quite interesting, but I'd probably need to check out a few reviews for it before truly knowing whether I'd like it.

    Thanks for sharing,

  5. This sounds interesting! It's the first I hear of it. Great choice!

  6. Dark Eyes is very on my my wishlist for 2012! A 15 year old 'killer in training'? Hungry for Justice? RUSSIA?! Um, I love this book already. Cannot wait!

  7. Oh this sounds fun and it does sound similar the "The Girl..." books. Fun!

  8. I've seen this but have been wavering on it. The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo was way too dark for me but I'm hoping that because this is YA, it won't be as dark as those books are. I think I will wait on your review to let me know how dark this one gets...

  9. Oooo haven't heard of this one before, thanks Christy! Love that cover, it's so interesting to look at:)

  10. Oooh you have me intrigued. I am excited for Dark Eyes now! =D

  11. The fact that they compare it to Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (which I liked) makes me excited to read this one! Awesome choice!

  12. I just saw this on Goodreads and squealed! This one sounds so awesome. I do love a good detective story. Great pick!

  13. I already had this on my TBR on Goodreads, but I haven't seen the cover or the blurb, so as always, thank you for sharing!

    I've read only 30 pages of The Girl With the Dragon wasn't horrible. I just wasn't a fan of the writing, not the story itself. It probably got better right after I put it down, lol.


Thanks for stopping by! :)
