Waiting on Wednesday (49) - On Which Booker T Also Has An Opinion



"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases. 







April 26. 2016

FROM GOODREADS: Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay 'til death. Whoever settles, never leaves.

Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a 17th century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Muzzled, she walks the streets and enters your homes at will. She stands next to your bed for nights on end. Everybody knows that her eyes may never be opened.

The elders of Black Spring have virtually quarantined the town by using high-tech surveillance to prevent their curse from spreading. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town's teenagers decide to break their strict regulations and go viral with the haunting, but in so doing send the town spiraling into the dark, medieval practices of the past.

WHY I'M WAITING: I have wanted this book ever since I first saw it.  It had me at a small town haunted by the Black Rock Witch.  It sounds so eerie I must have it in my life!  At least I don't have to wait much longer.

FROM GOODREADS:

National Book Award finalist and bestselling author Meg Rosoff's charming, hilarious new novel about a young New Yorker’s search for happiness and the two dogs who help him find it—the perfect summer read 

Jonathan Trefoil’s boss is unhinged, his relationship baffling, and his apartment just the wrong side of legal. His girlfriend wants to marry someone just like him—only richer and with a different sense of humor. He doesn’t remember life being this confusing, back before everyone expected him to act like a grown-up.

When his brother asks him to look after his dogs, Jonathan's world view begins to shift. Could a border collie and a cocker spaniel hold the key to life, the universe, and everything? Their sly maneuvering on daily walks and visits to the alluring vet suggest that human emotional intelligence may not be top dog after all.

A funny, wise romantic comedy set in Manhattan, Jonathan Unleashed is a story of tangled relationships, friendships, and dogs. Rosoff’s novel is for anyone wondering what to be when they grow up, and how on earth to get there.

WHY BOOKER T IS WAITING:  Mom has been trying like mad to get her hands on an advanced copy of this book.  I think she wants to find out how a collie and a cocker spaniel can hold the key to life and the universe.  I am sure interested (even though I think if any dog holds the universal key - whatever that is - it would be a boxer!).  Maybe she will luck out and nab a copy.  If not, guess we will have to wait until July.


What are you waiting for this week?
