Waiting on Wednesday is the brainchild of Breaking the Spine, although Jill isn’t hosting this meme anymore. In any case, I will continue to post Waiting on Wednesdays, simply because it’s one of my favorite posts to do each week:-D
Any time I see a comparison to Stranger Things, I can’t help but sit up and take notice. This book caught my eye for that reason:
Freddy wants desperately to not be noticed. She doesn’t want to be seen as different or unusual, but her step-brother Roland gets attention because he’s deaf, and her little sister Mel thinks she’s a private detective. All Freddy wants to do is navigate high school with as little trouble as possible.
Then someone moves into the house on Grosvenor Street. Two extremely odd someones.
Cuerva Lachance and Josiah aren’t . . . normal. When they move in next door, the house begins to exhibit some decidedly strange tendencies, like not obeying the laws of physics or reality. Just as Freddy thinks she’s had enough of Josiah following her around, she’s plunged into an adventure millennia in the making and discovers the truth about the new neighbors.
Weave a Circle Round by Kari Maaren. Releases in November 2017 from Tor Books. I know it’s a LONG way away before this book is published, but hey. We all need a little anticipation in our lives, right? Plus, I have a thing for book covers with upside down buildings/landscapes:-) Although Tor (not Tor Teen) is the publisher, this appears to have a YA crossover appeal.
