IN THE SPOTLIGHT : Something Strange And Deadly by Susan Dennard

Hi! I've been a little lazy recently and as you can see my poor blog has been lacking a lot of attention but hey, I totally blame it on school and the non stop crazy load of assignments. Hate it! Anyway I've decided to start a new meme called 'In The Spotlight' which is basically of featuring a certain book that has successfully caught your attention and refuses to let go! So, why not give the attention of a certain book that you can't wait to get you hands on and let them take the spotlight!!!

I think for the very first book that should be in the spotlight and ready to shine goes to (drum roll please)..... SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY BY SUSAN DENNARD!

By the sound of this book I'm guessing it will definitely be a superb read, I mean it has :

Awesome cover : Check!
Great Story Line : Check!
Great Characters : Check!
Zombies : Check!

What more can a girl ask for?! :D

Here's a brief summary of the book from
The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance...

Doesn't it sound awesome?! :)
