The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long.
Publication Date: August 16th 2012

The Treachery of Beautiful Things - Dial Books


The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.
Synopsis from Goodreads.com


As a child who grew up near dark woods and who spent more than her fair share of scary night hikes in them and imagining what else might be in there, the idea of exploring this further in book form immediately captured my interest. The synopsis doesn't give away too much, but I have the feeling that this is more than a girl meets mysterious boy story. High hopes for this. And on a side note: I can’t really say what it is about that cover, some days I really like it and then I go back to my usual not caring too much for cover designs. Thoughts?

Let’s hear from you what you are waiting on this week.

This sounds very magical! I like the idea of the dark woods too- they are always a place where you feel faeries could be!
