Can't Wait Wednesday (100) - Cassius Celebrates 100!


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Hey guys, it's me, Cassius (even though Mom refuses to change the C.W.W. photo).  I'm finally no longer grounded and get to play on the blog again.  I've been busy making amends to Booker T and he forgave me quite easily for my transgressions and I'm extremely grateful.  Oh, and Mom and Dad must love me A LOT because I still get to sleep in the bed at night.  So here's my pick for this week! 

 

FROM GOODREADS: Plenty of legends surround the infamous Boulder House in Whispering Bluffs, Wisconsin, but nobody takes them seriously. Certainly nobody believes that the original owner, Maxwell Cartwright Jr., cursed its construction—or that a murder of crows died upon its completion, their carcasses turning the land black. If anyone did believe it all, there’s no way River Red High would offer a field trip there for the senior class.

Five very different seniors on the trip—Violet, Paul, Ashley, Dylan, and Gretchen—have reasons beyond school spirit for not ditching the trip. When they’re separated from the group, they discover that what lies within Boulder House is far more horrifying than any local folklore. To survive, they’ll have to band together in ways they never could have imagined and ultimately confront the truths of their darkest selves.
 


WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  This is marked as a Young Adult horror so I think Mom will like it.  I know she likes horror and I can recall her saying something about me being lucky to survive young adulthood when I beat up Booker T - whatever that means. Either way, it has a creepy BIRD on the cover and you know how I feel about birds.


On another note:  In all seriousness guys, thanks for being so supportive to Mom when the incident happened with me and Booker T.  I really broke Mom's heart and I know she loves me and I'm doing so much better now and promise her, dad and everyone else that it will never happen again.  Thanks for welcoming me back to the blog.

SO WHAT CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR THIS WEEK???

  1. Nice to see you back Cassius! Everyone makes mistakes and none of us are perfect either. Auntie Chuckles sends you a big hug!

    Nice cover choice! Creepy yet intriguing. If it wasn't YA I might even have read it myself!

    1. Mom and Dad are glad he is behaving as well. I honestly didn't know if my husband could get past the whole incident considering Booker T is his baby but he was very forgiving.

  9. Glad to hear Cassius and Booker T are the bestest of pals again! And for the book, oooh it sounds good! I love horror too and while I'm a little wary of the YA tag, I still think it has potential to be creepy.

    1. Yea, I find YA horror to be either complete hits or complete misses. Keeping my fingers crossed for this one.

    1. The cover is quite terrifying. I think it's the combination bird and colors.

  13. Cassius! Glad you're back, and that you're not grounded anymore!! WOOF, WOOF!!! And I know you'll be a good boy from now on!! :)

    I have to say you're pretty brave to have picked this book! As I've already told your mom before, I am too much of a BIG CHICKEN to read stuff like this! Lol.

    I do hope you enjoy this, though! Just set yourself up by the fireplace (if it's cold where you live), with a bowl of doggie treats, and read away! If you get too scared, I'm sure Mom will be there to hug you!!

    ARF, WOOF WOOF, ARF!! (HAVE A NICE WEEKEND!!) And say "Hi" to Mom for me! Also, thank her for commenting on my CWW post!! <3 <3 :) :)

    1. Thanks and we all hope you have a nice weekend as well. Yep, it does get cold where we live but we had a mild winter this past year. This will be a great cold weather read when it finally releases. It's perfect that it is releasing in time for Halloween.
