Waiting on Wednesday #102: City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab




Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!







This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:





Title:  City of Ghosts
Author:  Victoria Schwab
Expected Publication Date:  August 28th, 2018


Cassidy Blake's parents are The Inspectres, a (somewhat inept) ghost-hunting team. But Cass herself can REALLY see ghosts. In fact, her best friend, Jacob, just happens to be one.

When The Inspectres head to ultra-haunted Edinburgh, Scotland, for their new TV show, Cass—and Jacob—come along. In Scotland, Cass is surrounded by ghosts, not all of them friendly. Then she meets Lara, a girl who can also see the dead. But Lara tells Cassidy that as an In-betweener, their job is to send ghosts permanently beyond the Veil. Cass isn't sure about her new mission, but she does know the sinister Red Raven haunting the city doesn't belong in her world. Cassidy's powers will draw her into an epic fight that stretches through the worlds of the living and the dead, in order to save herself.


I've read "This Savage Song" by Victoria Schwab and I LOVED IT!  I'm also interested in the fact that Victoria Schwab is writing a middle grade book, so I'm interested in seeing how this book plays out!


So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!

The Sunday Post Meme (146)




Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!The goal of this meme is to share news you have  on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!


Hey everyone! Happy August everyone!  I can't believe that August is already here!  It just seemed like yesterday that it was July and we are already nearing the end of this year!  I had a pretty bad reading month in July because I was going through a reading slump and I only managed to read 2 books for the month.  Hopefully, I can break out of this slump soon and read some more books!  Not much really happened this week except that I went shopping with my sisters and my dad and I've managed to buy some great books!

One Word: EXCITED!!!







(NETFLIX)

* I was very curious about this anime series and I ended up really ENJOYING it!  It was so hilarious and I just loved the premise of the series (a devil working at a part time job to earn some money to get back home...HILARIOUS)!!!






(FREE MOVIES)

* I was DYING to see this miniseries since I love retellings of the Wizard of Oz and this one is easily one of the most interesting and darkest retellings of the Wizard of Oz I have ever seen!  I'm still on part 2, so I'm hoping to wrap this series up this week!




(NETFLIX)

* I have been watching this show for awhile now and I'm still LOVING it!  I honestly have never seen the original series of "The Worst Witch," but I'm really enjoying the reboot of this series and I can't wait to see Season 3 soon!
