Can't Wait Wednesday (142)


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.



SYNOPSIS: When Greta Helsing, doctor to the undead, is unexpectedly called to Paris to present at a medical conference, she expects nothing more exciting than professional discourse on zombie reconstructive surgery and skin disease in bogeymen -- and hopefully at least one uneventful night at the Opera. 

Unfortunately for Greta, Paris happens to be infested with a coven of vampires -- and not the civilized kind. If she hopes to survive, Greta must navigate the darkest corners of the City of Lights, the maze of ancient catacombs and mine-tunnels underneath the streets, where there is more to find than simply dead men's bones. 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I still need to read Strange Practice but enough trusted bloggers have read and reviewed it that I am pretty sure I'll love it.  And like most bookworms, I can't let the fact that I haven't read book #1 keep me from wanting book #2.

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

  5. I found that funny when we bookworms crave a book when we haven't read the previous book in a series! We I guess we do develop an instinct right? :)

  9. Oddly enough, the cover is screaming Hamlet to me, but I have to say, a doctor to the undead and a protagonist who's name eludes to Van Helsig, sounds interesting.

  10. Great choice! I'm excited to read this, even though I wasn't completely crazy about book #1. But I'm curious to see if I like the second book more, sometimes that happens.

    1. Yes, sometimes but unfortunately if I am not thrilled about book 1, I don't want to be fair and give book 2 a chance.

  29. Oh, that cover.....SHUDDERS!!! You know I like vamps, but there are zombies in this one, too.... MORE SHUDDERS!! I checked this book out on Goodreads, and one of the categories it's classified under is.....YUP. HORROR. So I'll DEFINITELY pass!

    The one exception to the above is "Dread Nation", as you know. I really CAN'T WAIT to read that one! Must be the kick-butt female, and BLACK, MC!! (PLUS the cover ROCKS, TOO!!) :) :) :)

    Thanks for sharing! Thanks as well for commenting on my own CWW post!! Hope you're having a GREAT Saturday!! (And sorry for the late comment back....)

    HUGS TO YOU AND THE BOYS, AND WOOF, WOOF TO THEM, TOO!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
