On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It’s where I list all the books I desperately want but haven’t actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. If you want to know more click here.
Week 78: Desperately looking for the following ARCs/Review Copies: “Invisibility”, “Indelible”, “Ashes on the Waves”, “Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”, “Dark Triumph”, and more! Let me know if you’re willing to send me a copy!
Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week:
Summary: Zach, Poppy and Alice have been friends for ever. They love playing with their action figure toys, imagining a magical world of adventure and heroism. But disaster strikes when, without warning, Zach’s father throws out all his toys, declaring he’s too old for them. Zach is furious, confused and embarrassed, deciding that the only way to cope is to stop playing . . . and stop being friends with Poppy and Alice. But one night the girls pay Zach a visit, and tell him about a series of mysterious occurrences. Poppy swears that she is now being haunted by a china doll – who claims that it is made from the ground-up bones of a murdered girl. They must return the doll to where the girl lived, and bury it. Otherwise the three children will be cursed for eternity . . .
Why?: Holly Black returning to MG? Curses, murder, dolls? Yes please. And this sounds deliciously creepy, not unlike “Coraline” in tone. DEFINITELY reading this one once it comes out!
