Waiting on Wednesday #19

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies @ Breaking the Spine. It entails some of the books that we are eagerly waiting for! I'm so excited for this week's WoW because there is a book that I'm holding out my eye for next month! 

Alex's WoW Pick

Title: The Marvels 
Author: Brian Selznick
Pages: 640 pages
Published: September 15th, 2015 
Genre: Fantasy 
Caldecott Award winner and bookmarking trailblazer Brian Selznick once again plays with the form he invented and takes readers on a voyage!

Two seemingly unrelated stories-- one in words, the other in pictures-- come together. The illustrated story begins in 1766 with Billy Marvel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck, and charts the adventures of his family of actors over five generations. The prose story opens in 1990 and follows Joseph, who has run away from school to an estranged uncle's puzzling house in London, where he, along with the reader, must piece together many mysteries.


We're so excited for these books. What are you excited for?

is a book-hoarding, binge-eating anime lover that loves to read and write on her free time. When she hasn't got her head stuck in an enthralling fantasy novel, she's outside collecting rocks or re-organizing her bookshelves for the 100th time. Alex also has nightmares of her TBR pile falling down and crushing her underneath.
