Can't Wait Wednesday (174)


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: Boys are being trained at one school for geniuses, girls at another. And neither knows the other exists--until now. The innovative author of Bird Box invites you into a tantalizing world of secrets and lies.

J is a student at a school deep in a forest far away from the rest of the world.

J is one of only twenty-six students, who think of their enigmatic school's founder as their father. And his fellow peers are the only family J has ever had. The students are being trained to be prodigies of art, science, and athletics, but their life at the school is all they know--and all they are allowed to know.

But J is beginning to suspect that there is something out there, beyond the pines, that the founder does not want him to see, and he's beginning to ask questions. What is the real purpose of this place? Why can the students never leave? And what secrets is their father hiding from them?

Meanwhile, on the other side of the forest, in a school very much like J's, a girl named K is asking the same questions. J has never seen a girl, and K has never seen a boy. As K and J work to investigate the secrets of their two strange schools, they come to discover something even more mysterious: each other.

In Inspection, the masterful author of Bird Box crafts a sinister and evocative gender equality anthem that will have readers guessing until the final page. 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  Josh Malerman

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

  17. Cool, Josh Malerman will have another book out soon? I wasn't crazy about Unbury Carol, which was my first book by him, but I definitely want to try more of his work before I make up my mind about him!

  20. Hmmm....this does sound sinister, but I like the gender equality vibe. I might give it a chance, Barb! If I do, I will check it out of the library, though. I just renewed my library card, after YEARS of not having one! Lol.

    Thanks for sharing!! Thanks as well for commenting on my own CWW post!! Hope Booker T.'s health has continued to improve!! HUGS TO YOU AND THE PUPS, AND "WOOF, WOOF" TO THEM!! <3 :)

    1. The boys said "Hello!" Booker T got his stitches out last night. That's awesome that you renewed your library card. I'd be lost without mine.

  22. I haven't read this author yet but I did buy The Birdbox - and heard great things, just haven't had time to get to it yet. One day soon. This looks great - perhaps I should think of picking this one up instead!
