I feel like I have waited forever for this book. And I still have to wait until AUGUST! AGH. But it will be worth it. Because I adore these Gustav Gloom books. And look at that gorgeous cover. Swoon. I love the illustrations in these books so much. Sigh. I cannot wait to read more of Gustav and Fernie. <3
What are you waiting for?


  1. It's super exciting for you that a new book in a series you love (and what looks like an absolutely wonderful, quirky series at that) is coming out soon- your love for this series reminds me of how I feel about the All the Wrong Questions series by Lemony Snicket. I'll be sure to find out more about the Gustav Gloom books, now I know about them!

  2. I haven't heard about these books before, but that cover is so so cute with the perfect touch of creepy! Great pick Carina!

  4. This cover is pretty neat Carina! I've not heard of these books before either, but I hope you end up liking this one, and you don't have too long to wait either! Brilliant pick! :)

  5. I love this cover! I still need to read this series. Maybe I will start them close to the release date of this one- then I won't have to wait too long. :) Thanks for sharing.

  6. I've never heard of this series before. I just looked it up on Goodreads and it definitely sounds like something I'd enjoy! Thank you for sharing and introducing me to a new series I would of never known about! Right on!!!
