Wow: Ascending the Boneyard by C.G. Watson

This post is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm Waiting On:

Release Date: February 16, 2016

Donnie Darko meets The Matrix in this mind-bending and captivating mystery about one teen’s surreal experiences after surviving a major trauma.

Everything’s a battle.

Sometimes life gets too real, and Caleb Tosh has taken one hit too many. First, there was the accident that changed everything for Tosh’s younger brother. Now his mom has left. All the pain, the grief and loss, have finally pushed Tosh over the edge.

If only he could have a do-over. Wipe his reality. Start fresh. Maybe he could fix all of his mistakes and everything would be different. Tosh immerses himself in the complex missions from the game he obsessively plays, The Boneyard. The game bleeds into the dark nature of his everyday life, folding reality into surreality until it’s impossible to separate one from the other. Tosh is desperate to Ascend, to reach the next level, to become Worthy.

Readers are brought on a one-of-a-kind, absorbing journey where no one can say what is real and what isn’t—right up until the shocking, yet deeply powerful conclusion.

Its it wrong to say because the cover is super eye-catching?? Ok there's more than that, but that is the first thing that drew me to the book. I do think the story sounds great too!


  1. This book probably had me at Donnie Darko - I really loved that extremely messed up movie. I will have to put this on my wishlist. Thanks for sharing it!

  2. I agree with Barb, Donnie Darko is a great thing to be compared to. I'm totally interested in seeing where this book goes. Great choice. :)

  3. This is the first that I've heard of this one but it sounds great!
