Waiting on Wednesday #190: The Cousins by Karen M. McManus and Link by Link: An Anthology of Haunted Holidays by Meg Dailey


 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!

And since it's "HALLOWEEN WEEK," I have decided to choose some books that have a spooky feel!  So, let's get ready to be spooked out by these upcoming books!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selections are:


The Cousins

By: Karen M. McManus

Expected Publication Date: December 1st, 2020

Buy on:   Amazon

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying comes your next obsession. You'll never feel the same about family again.

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know each another, and they've never even met their grandmother. Rich and reclusive, she disinherited their parents before they were born. So when they each receive a letter inviting them to work at her island resort for the summer, they're surprised . . . and curious.

Their parents are all clear on one point--not going is not an option. This could be the opportunity to get back into Grandmother's good graces. But when the cousins arrive on the island, it's immediately clear that she has different plans for them. And the longer they stay, the more they realize how mysterious--and dark--their family's past is.

The entire Story family has secrets. Whatever pulled them apart years ago isn't over--and this summer, the cousins will learn everything.

Oooh!  A book about dark family secrets that should probably stay hidden!  I wonder just how "DARK" things are about to get... Definitely getting this book soon!

“‘I wear the chain I forged in life,’ replied the Ghost. ‘I made it link by link…’”
-Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
Link by Link is a collection of 9 stories of ghosts, spirits, and creatures unnamed, all come to teach lessons we won’t soon forget. From sweet Christmas tales to terrifying holiday hauntings, these stories take a dive into the past in the hopes of creating a better—or at least different—future.

Okay, so it's not Christmas yet, but the fact that this book has "ghosts, spirits and creatures, oh my" definitely more than qualifies for "horror" stories!  Definitely looking forward to this anthology series!
