Can't Wait Wednesday (143)


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.


FROM GOODREADS: After losing her hand in a tragic accident, Rachel is plagued by vivid nightmares of a hollow tree, and a hand reaching from it, begging her for help. Terrified that she is going mad, Rachel experiences phantom sensations of leaves, trees, and finally a hand that grasps hers and pulls a young woman into Rachel's world. She has no idea of who she is, but Rachel can't help but think of the local legend of Oak Mary, the corpse of a woman found hidden in a hollow tree, and who was never identified. Three myths have grown up around the body; was she a spy, a prostitute or a murdered gypsy? Rachel is desperate to learn the truth, but darker forces are at work. For a rule has been broken, and Mary is in a world where she doesn't belong...

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  This is touted as a new fantasy novel and to be honest, I'm not sure where I first heard about it.  I really love the cover - must be the green.  I'm super anxious to learn more about the woman who comes out of the tree.  

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

  1. I didn't know about this book but I'm convinced I want to read it now. The description of this book reminds me of the myth from the 40's of "Who put Bella in the Wych Elm?". I'm really intrigued!

  27. I haven't heard of this one, but it sounds interesting. I hope you love it when you get to read it. I'd be curious to read your thoughts on this one!

  28. Oh, Barb, I can't BELIEVE I've actually committed to buddy=read "Dread Nation" with you in April, when it's released! As you know, I'm knock-kneed with FEAR whenever I even THINK of the horror genre! Lol.

    I'll bet you were REALLY surprised when I said I would read this book with you, right? Lol. Maybe it's the fact that it has a kick-butt female protagonist who is BLACK. I think it's about time somebody wrote a book with such a protagonist!

    So, about the book you're featuring today.... Yup, my knees are already knocking together! Lol. Hope you enjoy it!!

    Thanks for commenting on my CWW post!! HUGS TO YOU AND THE BOYS, AND WOOF, WOOF TO THEM!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)
