Can't Wait Wednesday (163)


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:  Cainsville, Illinois. A town founded by fae escaping the Old World. A town both part of the world and cut off from it. A town that a young woman will run to, fleeing her past, only to discover that her past extends further than she ever imagined, into the distant history of Cainville itself. Collected in this volume are the stories of the town’s past, of the people and the fae she will eventually meet. 
A child tormented by visions of fae castles and fierce dragons. 
A hobgoblin who strives to avoid his role in an ancient prophecy. 
A boy who wants the perfect Solstice gift for his aunt. 
A writer who discovers all publicity is not good publicity after all. 
A much-maligned orange cat who won't quite stay dead. 
Another cat with more than his nine lives, one continually reborn to right an ancient wrong. 
And, finally, a story of the young woman who ran to Cainsville, now running away, searching for answers she can’t quite find. 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT: I love Armstrong and especially enjoyed her Cainsville series.  In fact, it has one of the most satisfying conclusions for me.  However, I never managed to read any of the short stories she shared through various means so I'm thrilled to see them here is one collection.  Plus it means new materials and spending time with some of my favorite characters again.

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

  9. I'm dying to get my hands on book 1 of this series so I can finally get caught up! I was at a used book sale a few weeks back and saw "Kelley Armstrong", immediately snagged it, and it's book 2. So now I'm dying for book 1 even more. lol

  15. There's nothing better than finding new (or new-to-you) work by a favorite author. And not too long of a wait!

  16. I should try these. Fae, a hobgoblin, cats that come back to life- sounds like a win to me! Plus I've enjoyed her City of the Lost books- I'd probably like these too!

  17. This book sounds incredible! I am such a terrible Canadian because I still have yet to read a Kelly Armstrong novel. I have been intrigued by so many of her books. I really need to change that! :)
