Can't Wait Wednesday (139) and a Special Announcement!


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.


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!  You know how sometimes Cass and I would sneak on the computer when Mom wasn't looking and feature books about/with dogs?  (and birds adds Cass).  Well in 2018 we're getting our own feature!  It won't take the place of any Can't Wait Wednesday memes but once a month, we'll be doing "Books to Bark (and crow) About!"

We won't just be sharing books that are yet to be released, but sharing other books we've discovered and which Mom might be interested in.  We're trying to convince Mom to run it the third Monday of each month but as soon as sometimes is finalized, we'll  let you know.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program....


FROM GOODREADS: Sep, Arkle, Mack, Lamb and Hadley: five friends thrown together one hot, sultry summer. When they discover an ancient stone box hidden in the forest, they decide to each make a sacrifice: something special to them, committed to the box for ever. And they make a pact: they will never return to the box at night; they'll never visit it alone; and they'll never take back their offerings.

Four years later, the gang have drifted apart. Then a series of strange and terrifying events take place, and Sep and his friends understand that one of them has broken the pact.

As their sacrifices haunt them with increased violence and hunger, they realise that they are not the first children to have found the box in their town's history. And ultimately, the box may want the greatest sacrifice of all: one of them. 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I'm always on the lookout for any horror, and this YA horror sounds like it will be pretty good.  Plus I want to see what each one offered and how it comes back to haunt them.

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

  4. Ooh great news Booker T and Cass! You guys deserve your own feature at last! The book story sounds good...until it says YA. I just avoid YA books coz of all the tropes!

    1. I know what you mean about YA. I don't mind reading it as long as it's good but love triangles are a staple in it it seems and they drive me NUTS.

    1. I think the cover is what initially caught my eye - but that happens with a lot of books with birds on them.
