waiting on wednesday: four

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Title: Dead Rules
Author: Randy Russell
Release Date: 21 June 2011
Summary (courtesy of goodreads.com):
Sometimes falling in love means you have to kill somebody.

Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were destined to be together forever. Of that, Jana was sure.

But Jana just died—in a bowling accident. And now she’s trapped in Dead School. Jana is certain that it won’t be long before Michael kills himself in order to spend eternity with her—but the days are passing and Michael is, inexplicably, still alive. So Jana decides to take matters into her own hands. And nothing—not even Dead School bad boy Mars Dreamcote’s enticingly warm touch or the devastating secret he holds about her death—will stop her from making her dreams come true.

Romeo and Juliet meets Heathers in this hilariously macabre take on paranormal romance, packed with heart-stopping suspense and sizzling star-crossed love.
First of all, I'm not a fan of this book's cover.  It looks like someone asked a goth kid to make a cover for the next installment of Pretty Little Liars.  Which, if I'm not mistaken, this book has nothing to do with.  But there are three things that intrigue me about Dead Rules:
  1. How does one die in a bowling accident?
  2. What does one learn about in Dead School?  Biology?  Art?  Death in Literature?
  3. Will the ghost (zombie?) of Jana be able to convince Michael to kill himself?  Or has he already moved on to some blonde bimbo named Amanda or Ashley or something of that nature?
To satisfy my curiosities, I will read this book.  I'm honestly not sure if I'll like it, but I'll read it anyway.  Because really, what part of bowling is so dangerous it results in death?


  1. I'm looking forward to this one too. It sounds kinda quirky and fun. I'm also really curious as to how someone dies in a bowling accident!
