Cemetery Girl
by Charlaine Harris & Christopher Golden

Goodreads synopsis:
Charlaine Harris, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels and the Harper Connelly Mysteries, and New York Times bestselling author Christopher Golden present an original graphic novel illustrated by acclaimed comic book artist Don Kramer—first in a brand-new trilogy.

She calls herself Calexa Rose Dunhill—names taken from the grim surroundings where she awoke, bruised and bloody, with no memory of who she is, how she got there, or who left her for dead.

She has made the cemetery her home, living in a crypt and avoiding human contact. But Calexa can’t hide from the dead—and because she can see spirits, they can’t hide from her.

Then one night, Calexa spies a group of teenagers vandalizing a grave—and watches in horror as they commit murder. As the victim’s spirit rises from her body, it flows into Calexa, overwhelming her mind with visions and memories not her own.

Now Calexa must make a decision: continue to hide to protect herself—or come forward to bring justice to the sad spirit who has reached out to her for help...

Seeing as I'm going to meet Charlaine Harris tomorrow, I thought it would be only fitting that this week's Wishlist Wednesday book should be one by her, and seeing as I own every other book she's written, it had to be this one. But of course, it's written by my favourite author, so I will definitely be getting it.
This is a graphic novel, which is something that I don't usually go for, but having read Charlaine's adaptation of her own Grave Sight novel into graphic novel, I'm pretty confident that I will enjoy it all the same. And the story definitely has me intrigued. It kind of has a bit of Harper Connelly about it, but at the same time, it's quite separate.

This doesn't come out until January, but I'm already ridiculously excited about it! Fingers crossed it's as good as I'm expecting it to be. Charlaine hasn't let me down yet, so I have a feeling it's going to be awesome!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I wasn't aware of this series. Shamefully, I have not yet read a single book by Charlaine Harris. Oh, I would like to, but you know how it goes. So many books to read.

You're meeting Charlaine Harris tomorrow??? Lucky you! You're right, the description does remind me a bit of Harper Connelly (maybe mixed with a bit of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book). I know Christopher Golden is a really good writer too. Sounds like a great choice!

I was all excited about this book, until you said graphic novel. I'm not much of a fan of those. But, I might check it out since it is two authors that I really like!

To all those who have mentioned that they're yet to try one of Charlaine's novels - you must!! I fell in love with her writing the instant I picked up the first Sookie book, all those years ago!

And YES I'M EXCITED TO MEET HER. I am going to be uncontrollable in the morning!

Happy reading everyone :D

Ohh how I wish I could get excited about this one! But I can't, I read all the Sookie books and Charlaine put me through the ringer lol. I loved the first few novels in the series, but everything after that was a huge let down. So now I'm afraid to read anything buy her again lol. I hope you love it and get it when it comes out though!

This one sounds both interesting and a little creepy. But, I like it. I will be adding it to my TBR list! Hope you get it soon!
