Can't Wait Wednesday (154)


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: Beatrice Hartley has no plans for the summer—except a secret reunion with her five former best friends.

Once upon a time, back at Darrow-Harker School, they were the cool kids, the beautiful ones. Then the shocking death of Jim—their creative genius—changed everything.

One year after graduation, Beatrice is returning to Wincroft—the seaside estate where they spent so many nights sharing secrets, crushes, plans to change the world—in the hopes that she will get to the bottom of the dark questions gnawing at her about Jim’s death. She suspects that her friends knew much more than they ever let on.

But as the night plays out in a haze of stilted jokes and unfathomable silence, answers seem unlikely. Her friends are all so different now, so splintered and lost. It’s too late. Beatrice senses she’s going to live the rest of her life far away from them, never knowing what really happened.

Then night fades to morning. A thunderstorm rages, and a mysterious man knocks on the door. He looks like the exhausted ringmaster of a cheap traveling circus. Blithely, he announces the impossible.

And so begins the Neverworld Wake. The nightmare. The nothingness.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  Besides the fact that this guy sounds like someone who might show up randomly in my neighborhood, I really want to know what is going on and what he announces.  I've never read "Night Film" but I do own it and this sounds like it could be a good followup.  

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

    1. Well, a few years ago the guy at the very end of the street poured gasoline on himself and was threatening to light himself on fire if his wife didn't let him back in the house. Firetrucks came and they finally ended up blasting him with the hose so he wasn't flammable. He flew half-way down the street.

    2. Oh my goodness Barb! That's awful! Glad he's okay, even he did go flying. Are they still there?

    3. He's fine and I think he was probably so drunk he didn't feel it. They were renters so happily they are gone. Don't know what ever happened to him but I never saw him on the news again. (he made top story that night)

    4. That's awful but conjures up humorous images in my head all the same!

  6. After I read "One of us is lying" and "The Broken Girls" I realized I like YA mysteries! Especially in school settings. I hope this one is good and I cannot wait to hear how you liked it!

  16. I saw this one a few weeks ago. The tension should be pretty intense and it sounds like one of those books, where a stranger unleashes repressed chaos. Hope it's great!
