Can't Wait Wednesday (168)


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: Based on the hit graphic-novel series from BOOM! Studios, the publisher behind Lumberjanes, Giant Days follows the hilarious and heartfelt misadventures of three university first-years: Daisy, the innocent home-schooled girl; Susan, the sardonic wit; and Esther, the vivacious drama queen. While the girls seem very different, they become fast friends during their first week of university. And it's a good thing they do, because in the giant adventure that is college, a friend who has your back is key--something Daisy discovers when she gets a little too involved in her extracurricular club, the Yogic Brethren of Zoise. When she starts acting strange and life around campus gets even stranger (missing students, secret handshakes, monogrammed robes everywhere . . .), Esther and Susan decide it's up to them to investigate the weirdness and save their friend.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  Even though I'm drastically behind, I love the "Giant Days" graphic novels.  I've also heard some good things about Non Pratt so I'm super excited about this novelization.  

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

  2. I can't say I've heard of this but that's no surprise when I don't read graphic novels I guess! I hope the novel version will live up to expectations!

    1. I read them when I can grab them from the library. They're too expensive for my tastes and I have only purchased a few select ones.
