Yay! It is another Wednesday! Before I can read my new Library books I want to show you all the book I am waiting for on this Wednesday. It is another creepy book, but also a book by an author whose books I have all loved so far, and I am hoping that this one will be another book to love.
At least it sounds promising, and creepy. Also it does look super-creepy with that wax hand holding a candle.
Now a question for my readers: What are you waiting for this Wednesday? Anything good? Anything you would recommend?
Here is what I am waiting for:
=Paraffin, Vermont, is known the world over as home to the Grosholtz Candle Factory. But behind the sunny retail space bursting with overwhelming scents and homemade fudge, seventeen-year-old Poppy Palladino discovers something dark and unsettling: a back room filled with dozens of startlingly life-like wax sculptures, crafted by one very strange old lady. Poppy hightails it home, only to be shocked when one of the figures—a teenage boy who doesn’t seem to know what he is—jumps naked and screaming out of the trunk of her car. She tries to return him to the candle factory, but before she can, a fire destroys the mysterious workshop—and the old woman is nowhere to be seen.
With the help of the wax boy, who answers to the name Dud, Poppy resolves to find out who was behind the fire. But in the course of her investigation, she discovers that things in Paraffin aren’t always as they seem, that the Grosholtz Candle Factory isn’t as pure as its reputation—and that some of the townspeople she’s known her entire life may not be as human as they once were. In fact, they’re starting to look a little . . . waxy. Can Poppy and Dud extinguish the evil that’s taking hold of their town before it’s too late?
So why do I really want to read this book?
Well first off, because it is a book by Gina Damico and she is one of my favourite authors. She keeps writing funny books with lovely supernatural elements, a combination in books that I just adore and I wish there was more of. Secondly, the book sounds positively creepy, with a wax statues (are they real or not), crazy old ladies, and mystery and (hopefully) some creepy scares.
