Can't Wait Wednesday (149)


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 GOODREADSPhoebe Darrow and her mom are lightning rods for monsters.

It seems wherever they travel, they end up fleeing from either flying saucers, flesh-eating plants, blobs from space, or radioactive ants.

Fortunately, Phoebe and her ma can see the man who fills the sky—the one in the bathrobe holding a remote control with a bored expression on his face. Invisible to everyone else, his eyes keep them—and only them—safe by warning them where the next monster will pop up.

All Phoebe wants is to stop jumping from town to town and begin living her own life somewhere like New York or Paris. But when her mom vanishes, Phoebe is left to fend for herself in the small town of Pennybrooke—right where the man in the sky is staring. That’s where she begins to transform… 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I really want to know more about these monsters and the bored man in the sky with the remote control. Plus, that cover is rather catchy don't you think?

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

  22. Oh, the "Quirky/Weird Meter" tells me this one has a VERY high reading!! LOL. LOVE it, of course! Yes, I know there are monsters, but what I like is that these characters are INSIDE a video game, and "the bored man in the sky, with a remote" is actually playing the game! Oh, this sounds like FUN!! And yes, I do like that cover! Sign me up!! On to Goodreads it goes!!
