Waiting on Wednesday (26)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.  Here is what I am most waiting for this week:

The Three Sisters (The Krampas Chronicles) Sonia Halbach - 11/2/15
Fourteen-year-old Maggie Ogden thinks she knows everything there is to Grandfather Clement Clarke Moore and his legendary poem,’Twas the Night Before Christmas. But all this changes Christmas Eve 1854 when Chelsea Manor receives an unexpected visitor - Henry Livingston; who’s searching for evidence to prove that his grandfather, Major Henry, is the true author of the famous holiday poem.

The night takes a strange turn when Maggie and Henry come across another intruder in Chelsea Manor. After following the peculiar boy down a secret opening within the fireplace and through an underground tunnel full of mechanical sleighs, Maggie and Henry discover Poppel, a hidden village under New York City.

Faced with the deadly challenges presented by the legend of The Three Sisters, Maggie and Henry are forced to play by Poppel’s rules and those who run the cursed village. And they quickly learn that not only is leaving Poppel harder than arriving, but there are even more dangerous lies and mysterious truths to Clement Clarke Moore, Christmas, and a menacing creature called Krampus than anyone could have known.

WHY I'M WAITING:  Come on, a scary Christmas book!  I am already lining books up to read in December and there's so much fluff and stuff (albeit good fluff and stuff I am sure) that this one has to go in the pile to break things up!  I even have a zombie Christmas book in the wings too.

What are you waiting for this week? 


  1. OMG! This does sound unusual and interesting! I do prefer to read the fluffier Christmas stuff, though. Lol. Still, I might very well give this one a try. I like the whole idea of a secret village hiding underneath NYC. GREAT pick!!
