Can't Wait Wednesday (215)


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: A dinosaur detective in the land of unwanted ideas battles trauma, anxiety, and the first serial killer of imaginary friends.

Most ideas fade away when we're done with them. Some we love enough to become Real. But what about the ones we love, and walk away from? 

Tippy the triceratops was once a little girl's imaginary friend, a dinosaur detective who could help her make sense of the world. But when her father died, Tippy fell into the Stillreal, the underbelly of the Imagination, where discarded ideas go when they're too Real to disappear. Now, he passes time doing detective work for other unwanted ideas - until Tippy runs into The Man in the Coat, a nightmare monster who can do the impossible: kill an idea permanently. Now Tippy must overcome his own trauma and solve the case, before there's nothing left but imaginary corpses. 

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  So you never know what book you'll find popping up each Wednesday right?  Sometimes you get mysteries, sometimes horror and sometimes dogs.  Well this time, you're getting something weird, which happens from time to time as well.  I just need to know more about this book and feel that the only way to do it is read it!  I may just fall in love with Tippy!

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

    1. Yea the mystery side will probably help pull in more readers because let's face it, it does sound odd.
