Graveminder by Melissa Marr

The New York Times bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series delivers her first novel for adults, a story about the living, the dead, and a curse that binds them.

Rebekkah Barrow never forgot the tender attention her grandmother, Maylene, bestowed upon the dead of Claysville, the town where Bek spent her adolescence. There wasn’t a funeral that Maylene didn’t attend, and at each Rebekkah watched as Maylene performed the same unusual ritual: three sips from a small silver flask followed by the words “Sleep well, and stay where I put you.”

Now Maylene is dead and Bek must go back to the place–and the man–she left a decade ago. But what she soon discovers is that Maylene was murdered and that there was good reason for her odd traditions. It turns out that in placid Claysville, the worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected. Beneath the town lies a shadowy, lawless land ruled by the enigmatic Charles, aka Mr. D–a place from which the dead will return if their graves are not properly minded. Only the Graveminder, a Barrow woman, and the current Undertaker, Byron, can set things to right once the dead begin to walk.

A rather slow release week.

    I'm looking forward to Melissa Marr's new adult novel, Graveminder! I'm definitely going to pick that one up this week…it looks spooky!

    Hmmm, great list of releases here. I never even heard of Curse busters, but it does sound fun. 🙂 I'm going to have to think on that one. Thank you!

    @Pauline I'm so curious about this one myself. Never read her before.

    @Melissa Yes it does and you're welcome.

    Nothing catching my eye this week….but NEXT week should be fabulous. Oh wait, the 31st is on a Tuesday. GAH! That's TWO more weeks.

    I'm like draconismoi…nothing grabs me this week. That's okay. My TBR pile could use a break!

    Aside from "Graveminder", there isn't any book I want that much. Phew for my TBR pile and my wallet!

    @draconismoi @LSUReader There wasn't anything I desperately wanted either. But we have some exciting weeks ahead of us.

    @Ren Ohhh congrats! Winning books is always fun.

    @Sheree Yep really slow release week. But as the ladies before me already said- the tbr is happy about that. 😉
