Book I Covet: Don't You Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn

Epic Reads described this one as Stephen King meets Tuck Everlasting. Interesting combo--the description certainly gives that impression.

Welcome to Gardnerville.

A place where no one gets sick. And no one ever dies.


There’s a price to pay for paradise. Every fourth year, the strange power that fuels the town exacts its payment by infecting teens with deadly urges. In a normal year in Gardnerville, teens might stop talking to their best friends. In a fourth year, they’d kill them.

Four years ago, Skylar’s sister, Piper, was locked away after leading sixteen of her classmates to a watery grave. Since then, Skylar has lived in a numb haze, struggling to forget her past and dull the pain of losing her sister. But the secrets and memories Piper left behind keep taunting Skylar—whispering that the only way to get her sister back is to stop Gardnerville’s murderous cycle once and for all.

Don't You Forget About Me will be released on June 10, 2014. Click on the cover to go to the book's Goodreads page.

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series we do here on Wednesdays. It will feature books we are very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is basically the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, but we just like the title "books we covet" better. We will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available. 


  1. I'm not quite sure how to feel about this one. The whole idea seems so different and I would want to read it, only it seems to scary for me. I'm a coward, what can I say. Great pick :)

    This reminds me of a movie I once saw but I can't remember the name gah. I just hope when I do get round to reading this that I love it a heck of a lot more than Another Little Piece. Nice choice this week.

  12. I have love/hate relationship with K.K.Quinn. I loved the idea but didn't like the execution of 'Another Little Peace'. So I like the sound of this book too, but I am not sure when and if I will read it.
    But nice pick, I haven't heard about it before.
