Waiting on Wednesday #169

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


Goodreads Description:

What if you found your own grave and it wasn't empty? Discover the dark delights of faeries and fortune-tellers in this gently spooky book from the author of Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times, sure to appeal to fans of Coraline.

Grave robbing is a messy business.

A bad business. And for Thomas Marsden, on what was previously an unremarkable spring night in London, it becomes a very spooky business. For lying in an unmarked grave and half covered with dirt is a boy the spitting image of Thomas himself. This is only the first clue that something very strange is happening. Others follow, but it is a fortune-teller's frightened screams that lead Thomas into a strange world of spiritualists, death, and faery folk. Faery folk with whom Thomas's life is bizarrely linked. Faery folk who need his help.

Desperate to unearth the truth about himself and where he comes from, Thomas is about to discover magic, ritual, and the uncanny truth that sometimes the things that make a boy ordinary are what make him extraordinary.

Hardcover, 256 pages
Expected publication: July 28th 2015 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

I'm so excited about this book. I think it sounds all kinds of exciting and I adore that cover. It is gorgeous. Just, sigh. I cannot wait to read this one. The end of July feels too far away, though. Hmph. Waiting for books is the worst, lol. But while waiting I really need to read the first book by this author, as I own that one. <3 And it sounds amazing too. I just cannot wait to get to meet Thomas in July :)
