Waiting on Wednesday: Mary:The Summoning

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

 I am waiting on:
MARY: The Summoning (Bloody Mary, #1)
Title: Mary: The Summoning
Author: Hillary Monahan
Series: Bloody Mary #1
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Publication Date: September 2, 2014
Genre: Young Adult, Horror, 
There is a right way and a wrong way to summon her.
Jess had done the research. Success requires precision: a dark room, a mirror, a candle, salt, and four teenage girls. Each of them--Jess, Shauna, Kitty, and Anna--must link hands, follow the rules . . . and never let go.
A thrilling fear spins around the room the first time Jess calls her name: "Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary. BLOODY MARY." A ripple of terror follows when a shadowy silhouette emerges through the fog, a specter trapped behind the mirror.
Once is not enough, though--at least not for Jess. Mary is called again. And again. But when their summoning circle is broken, Bloody Mary slips through the glass with a taste for revenge on her lips. As the girls struggle to escape Mary's wrath, loyalties are questioned, friendships are torn apart, and lives are forever altered.
A haunting trail of clues leads Shauna on a desperate search to uncover the legacy of Mary Worth. What she finds will change everything, but will it be enough to stop Mary--and Jess--before it's too late?
Why am I waiting?
A twist on the Bloody Mary urban legend count me in. I am curious to see how Hillary Monahan takes the legend of Bloody Mary and puts her own spin on it. Even though it comes out in September, it would be a great read to get in the mood for Halloween. 

What are you waiting on?
Make sure to let me know in the comments
