WoW {3}: In the Shadows by Kiersten White and Jim Di Bartolo

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme in which bloggers discuss the upcoming releases they're excited for. Hosted by Breaking the Spine.
From Goodreads:

From the remarkable imagination of acclaimed artist Jim Di Bartolo and the exquisite pen of bestselling author Kiersten White comes a spellbinding story of love, mystery, and dark conspiracy, told in an alternating narrative of words and pictures.

Cora and Minnie are sisters living in a small, stifling town where strange and mysterious things occur. Their mother runs the local boarding house. Their father is gone. The woman up the hill may or may not be a witch.

Thomas and Charles are brothers who’ve been exiled to the boarding house so Thomas can tame his ways and Charles can fight an illness that is killing him with increasing speed. Their family history is one of sorrow and guilt. They think they can escape from it . . . but they can’t.

Laini Taylor recently posted some photos from this book on her blog (her husband, Jim Di Bartolo, is the illustrator) and it looked so pretty that I immediately had to add it to my to-read list! Di Bartolo also illustrated Laini Taylor's Lips Touch: Three Times story collection. The illustrations really enhanced the stories and I can't wait to see more of his work in In the Shadows. I haven't read Kiersten White before but I know lots of people love her Paranormalcy series, so I'm hoping I enjoy her writing, too.

Release Date: April 29, 2014
