Waiting on Wednesday: Texas Gothic

April 27, 2011

Title: Texas Gothic
Author: Rosemary Clement-Moore
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Pub Date: July 12, 2011

Amy Goodnight’s family is far from normal. She comes from a line of witches, but tries her best to stay far outside the family business. Her summer gig? Ranch-sitting for her aunt with her wacky but beautiful sister. Only the Goodnight Ranch is even less normal than it normally is. Bodies are being discovered, a ghost is on the prowl, and everywhere she turns, the hot neighbor cowboy is in her face.–Goodreads

Y’all, I haven’t been home [Arkansas] since Christmas. I am hella-homesick. NYC is great and wonderful and amazing, but it’s not home. So lately I’ve been devouring books that are somehow connected to the South whether it’s the setting, the author’s hometown, or just the tone of the book. Not surprisingly, I was hooked as soon as I heard the title of this. 

Despite the fact that I would have read this book regardless of the jacket copy (above), I’m really excited about this one! I’m not normally drawn to books about witches, but a book with a ranch and a hot neighbor cowboy as well as witches? Mhmm. I think I will. 

Bonus: THAT COVER. The colors! And, is it just me or does the model look a bit like (super gorgeous) Kate Walsh?

So that’s my pick! If y’all know of any other Southern-centric books, throw ’em at me (Literally if you’d like!) and lemme know what you’re waiting on in comments!
