Can't-Wait Wednesday: Watch You Burn - Amanda Searcy

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I can't wait for Watch You Burn!

Watch You Burn
Amanda Searcy
Series: n/a
Release Date: Oct. 23, 2018
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Waited on by: Sam
Jenny didn't want to move to the creepy, possibly haunted town with her dad. But the cops are on to her, and the only way she can protect herself is by moving as far away from her hometown as possible and staying out of trouble.

But even after she moves, Jenny still gets the itch. The itch to light a match and then watch it burn.

It's something she hasn't been able to stop, ever since an accident years ago. Now, in a new town, Jenny has the strange feeling that someone is watching her every move. Will her arsonist ways be exposed? Or is the burning truth deep inside her a greater danger?
Why can't I wait to read this book?
  1. Search's debut, The Truth Beneath the Lies, was fabulous! I am thinking she is going to take me on another thrill ride in this book. 
  2. It's set in a creepy, possibly haunted town. πŸ˜±
  3. She's on the run from the cops. 
  4. I think Jenny is a pyromaniac. I haven't see that in quite a while. 
  5. A stranger is watching. 
Sounds like this one has all the makings for a great suspense/thriller, and I think it will be fantastic with Searcy at the helm.


What are you waiting on?

  1. I don't think I've read anything with a pyromaniac as the main character. Sure sounds like it will be a good one!

    1. Me neither, so I am intrigued by that. Her books are darker than I normally go for, but I enjoyed her debut so much, I am willing to make the exception.

  2. this sounds intense. Sounds really good. I have added it to my TBR.

    1. That is a good way to describe Searcy's last book, and I am thinking this will be similar in style.

  3. I don't think I've ever read a book with a pyromaniac character. How interesting! Thanks for introducing it to me!

    1. That was exactly what I was thinking when I read the synopsis. I am always looking for something a little different too.

  4. I wasn't interested in this until I heard creepy haunted town. That's pretty much sucked me right in!

    1. I bet you didn't think I had it in me, eh? πŸ˜‚ If I hadn't already read something by this author, I probably wouldn't put this so high on my list, but I think Searcy will deliver a great story.

  5. Don’t think I’ve ever read about an arsonist before. That’s a unique twist. And the fact that someone’s watching ratchets up the suspense!

    1. That is what I am hearing from a lot of people, and I don't think I have either. The closest I get is November 9, but that was not really a case of pyromania.

    1. If Searcy's debut is any indication, I think this will be a rather intense read, but she knows how to temper it so as to not overwhelm me.

  10. Ooh I like the pyro angle and her being on the run from the cops. Yes please.

  11. Added this one to my list! I don't think I've ever read a book about an arsonist before. Also, she leaves town with her dad... does that mean he knows her secret? Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Good question! Hopefully one we will get the answer to if we read the book.

  12. This one is completely new to me and I like how different it sounds. I may have to try to get my hands on this one. I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it, Sam!

    1. Sometimes I mix things up, but I am more daring with this selection, because I have read the author's previous book.

  13. This is neat! Creepy thriller is something I have a love/hate relationship with. They intrigue me but I'm way too scared of them. πŸ˜‚ Happy reading, Sam!

    Have a fantastic day. =)

    1. Her last book was heart pumping, but not too scary

  14. Pyromania and ghosts? Definitely not a combination I've ever seen!

  15. Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh. I'm intrigued. I love me some haunted towns. Even better than haunted houses! Plus throw in a good mystery and I'm so intrigued. Great post, Sam! :)

  17. I've been seeing a theme lately - Eleanor Oliphant is Absolutely Fine, Little Fires Everywhere and this one... Maybe we just want to watch the world burn ;)

    Just kidding! Sounds intriguing to me too ;)

    1. I had to set aside Eleanor Oliphant. I wasn't in the right headspace for it, so I never got to the pyro part. Honestly, I had no idea that was part of the story.
