Can't Wait Wednesday (160)


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: When Lacy wakes up dead in Westminster Cemetery, final resting place of Edgar Allan Poe, she's confused. It's the job of Sam, a young soldier who died in 1865, to teach her the rules of the afterlife and to warn her about Suppression--a punishment worse than death.

Lacy desperately wants to leave the cemetery and find out how she died, but every soul is obligated to perform a job. Given the task of providing entertainment, Lacy proposes an open mic, which becomes a chance for the cemetery's residents to express themselves. But Lacy is in for another shock when surprising and long-buried truths begin to emerge.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT: I can't determine if this is MG or YA but either way, I'm pretty sure I want to read it.  I love the historical element of it and come on, an open mic night in a cemetery with the ghosts of dead inhabitants?  It kind of screams "Barb, read me!"

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

    1. I never thought I'd like historical fiction but have learned when it's teamed with mystery, thrillers or horror - I love it.

  3. This sounds really good, to me it sounds maybe on the younger, lighter end of the spectrum. But great choice😊

  7. I live near Baltimore where Westminster Hall is located, so anything Poe related is a pretty big deal around these parts. I'll probably have to read this one just out of sheer interest alone. Thanks for the find!

    1. Poe was such an interesting individual. It must be close to live nearby there.
