Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, where we have the chance to share what upcoming releases we are on the edge of our seats in anticipation for.
This week I am very excited for NOS4A2 by Joe Hill!! I am really also excited to find out that he is going to be in Denver at the Tattered Cover for a book signing in May!! First up I have the limited edition cover.. which I just found out about today. It is done by the same artist Gabriel Rodriguez who is the artist of Locke and Key Joe Hill's graphic novel. So of course it's sold out:
Here is an excerpt of NOS4A2 if you want to read it. And here is the goodreads description of the book:Charlie Manx burned a man to death in his black 1938 Rolls Royce Wraith, but that’s not the worst of it. Rumor has it that he kidnapped dozens of children, taking them to a place he calls “Christmasland.” The only child ever to escape was a very lucky girl named Victoria McQueen.
Vic has a gift – she can ride her bike through the Shorter Way bridge and she’ll come out the other side wherever she needs to be, even if it’s hundreds of miles away. Vic doesn’t tell anyone about her ability; no one would understand.
When Charlie Manx finally dies after years in prison, his body disappears...after the autopsy. The police and media think someone stole it, but Vic knows the truth: Charlie Manx is on the road again...and he has her kid. And this time, Vic McQueen’s going after him...
What are you waiting for?
