Waiting on Wednesday [17]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.

This week I am waiting on A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis (October 6, 2015)

Summary From GoodReads

She keeps it locked away, along with her voice, trapped deep inside a brilliant mind that cannot forget horrific family secrets. Those secrets, along with the bulge in her belly, land her in a Boston insane asylum.

When her voice returns in a burst of violence, Grace is banished to the dark cellars, where her mind is discovered by a visiting doctor who dabbles in the new study of criminal psychology. With her keen eyes and sharp memory, Grace will make the perfect assistant at crime scenes. Escaping from Boston to the safety of an ethical Ohio asylum, Grace finds friendship and hope, hints of a life she should have had. But gruesome nights bring Grace and the doctor into the circle of a killer who stalks young women. Grace, continuing to operate under the cloak of madness, must hunt a murderer while she confronts the demons in her own past.

In this beautifully twisted historical thriller, Mindy McGinnis, acclaimed author of Not a Drop to Drink and In a Handful of Dust, explores the fine line between sanity and insanity, good and evil—and the madness that exists in all of us.

Why I'm Waiting

This book sounds really cool.  I love historical settings.  And after reading We'll Never Be Apart I found that I enjoyed some psychology in books.  I'm really excited to read this one, I have high hopes for it, and based on the blurb alone I'm already rooting for Grace.


  1. This books sounds really interesting! I'm intrigued just reading the summary and that cover is amazing. I will definitely add it to my tbr.
