I hope your week is going well so far!
As per Wednesday, read on to see what I can’t wait to get my hands on!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you can highlight upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating!
What I’m waiting on:
Holding Court by K. C. Held
Synopsis (via GoodReads): Sixteen-year-old Jules Verity knows exactly what’s in store at her new job at castle-turned-dinner-theater Tudor Times. Some extra cash, wearing a fancy-pants dress, and plenty of time to secretly drool over the ever-so-tasty–and completely unavailable–Grayson Chandler. Except that it’s not quite what she imagined.
For one, the costume Jules has to wear is awful. Then there’s the dead body she finds that just kind of…well, disappears. Oh, and there’s the small issue of Jules and her episodes of what her best friend calls “Psychic Tourette’s Syndrome”–spontaneous and uncontrollable outbursts of seemingly absurd prophecies.
The only bright side? This whole dead body thing seems to have gotten Grayson’s attention. Except that the more Jules investigates, the more she discovers that Grayson’s interest might not be as courtly as she thought. In fact, it’s starting to look suspicious…
- I’ve been in the mood to read some more mystery and this book has both mystery and YA flair! I can’t wait to see how the author sets up the mystery suspense in this novel.
- “Psychic Tourette’s Syndrome” — nothing like adding some psychic abilities to add a little spice to a murder mystery novel.
- “…castle-turned-dinner-theater Tudor Times” — As a Renaissance Fair attendee, I’m excited to see this (sorta) type of setting in a YA novel.
- This novel is also listed as a 2016 Author Debut. I’m interested in delving into this author’s writing style.
