Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!
Here's my pick this week:
The Boy Who Lost FairylandFull disclosure: I still need to read the third Fairyland book - so I'm not quite sure what brought on the change in the main character from our beloved September to this new boy. And to be honest, I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm hoping September will make some sort of an appearance...unless things get explained and settled in the third book, in which case I have total confidence that Miss Valente will deliver an equally engaging and whimsical foray into Fairyland! I spy a Wyvern there on the cover... so all is certainly not lost! These books have a very special quality to them that makes the truly unique and heartwarming so I don't think I could ever get enough. Valente's writing style is superb so if she's offering up more books, I'll be reading them :)
by Catherynne M. Valente - (Fairyland #4)
Expected Publication: March 3rd 2015 by Feiwel & Friends
When a young troll named Hawthorn is stolen from Fairyland by the Golden Wind, he becomes a changeling – a human boy -- in the strange city of Chicago, a place no less bizarre and magical than Fairyland when seen through trollish eyes. Left with a human family, Hawthorn struggles with his troll nature and his changeling fate. But when he turns twelve, he stumbles upon a way back home, to a Fairyland much changed from the one he remembers. Hawthorn finds himself at the center of a changeling revolution--until he comes face to face with a beautiful young Scientiste with very big, very red assistant.
