Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we can share upcoming books that we’re excited about with other bloggers and readers. This week I’m waiting on:
The Secrets of Drearcliff Grange School by Kim Newman. Releases in October from Titan Books. CHECK OUT THAT COVER! I just love it. OK, so the title is a bit of a mouthful (trying saying it out loud, I dare you!), but the story sounds creepy, and dare I say involves superheroes?? I’ve read several Newman books, but long, long ago during my pre-blogging days. I do love his Anno Dracula, and I’m looking forward to his latest. Here’s the Goodreads description:
A week after Mother found her sleeping on the ceiling, Amy Thomsett is delivered to her new school, Drearcliff Grange in Somerset. Although it looks like a regular boarding school, Amy learns that Drearcliff girls are special, the daughters of criminal masterminds, outlaw scientists and master magicians. Several of the pupils also have special gifts like Amy’s, and when one of the girls in her dormitory is abducted by a mysterious group in black hoods, Amy forms a secret, superpowered society called the Moth Club to rescue their friend. They soon discover that the Hooded Conspiracy runs through the School, and it’s up to the Moth Club to get to the heart of it.
Let me know what you’re waiting on this week:-D
