Another week gone by super fast :) And I still have not read anything. Oops. But I have my next read ready, and will make myself start this coming week, ha. I just need to start. I love reading. But I am too lazy and exhausted, still. Rude. This week haven't been easy, as I'm feeling pretty much dead. Always waiting to feel better, always feeling worse instead, lol. Sigh. I'm still checking for those goddamn Animal Crossing cards eeevery day all the damn time. They are still not back in stock, not any of the six types. Grrr. It's making me exhausted and stressed and I just want to be able to buy them all. Sigh. Hopefully early next week then. Hmph. Tired of just waiting and waiting. Which is also why I have not really done anything else. I'm still just checking and waiting. Oops. But I don't mind too much :) My body needs the rest. A few pretty books this week. <3 But only one new blog post. This week I'm waiting on Wretched Waterpark :) Hope you are all doing okay. <3 My "baby" niece turns four years old tomorrow, aaaack :D

Rebellion of the Lost. I'm excited to read this middle grade sequel one day soonish, hopefully :) So cute.
Serendipity. I know, I know. Not really a book for me, but Marissa, so of course I had to have the UK too :)
Tess of the Road. New paperback edition :D It looks gorgeous. Can't wait for book two next month, eee.
WarioWave. I wasn't sure if I wanted this game, but I also couldn't stop myself, haha :D Hoping it's good.
Amiibo Figures. These were a little expensive. But Cat Peach is the most adorable. Cat Mario too, sure :)

Waiting on Wednesday #534

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

WRETCHED WATERPARK BY KIERSTEN WHITE

Goodreads Description:

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes her middle grade series debut! Part Scooby Doo, part A Series of Unfortunate Events, and entirely genius! Meet the Sinister-Winterbottom twins, who solve mysteries at increasingly bizarre summer vacation destinations in the hopes of being reunited with their parents--or at the very least finally finding a good churro.

Twelve-year-old twins Theodora and Alexander and their older sister Wilhelmina Sinister-Winterbottom don't know how they ended up with their Aunt Saffronia for an entire summer. She's not exactly well equipped to handle children. The twins are determined to make it a good vacation, though, so when Aunt Saffronia suggests a waterpark, they hastily agree.

But Fathoms of Fun is not your typical waterpark. Instead of cabanas, guests rent mausoleums. The waterslides are gray tongues extending from horrible gargoyle faces. The few people they encounter are very, very odd. And the owner disappeared under bizarre circumstances, lost to the Cold, Unknowable Sea--the wave pool.

When Wil goes missing, rule following, cautious Alexander and competitive, brave Theo will have to work together to solve the mystery of Fathoms of Fun. But are they out of their depth?

Hardcover, 256 pages
