Happy Wednesday all, weekend is almost here bounces. Welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday, this week featuring: “Wow in the World: The How and Wow of the Human Body” by Mindy Thomas, Guy Raz, and Jack Teagle. The title is even longer, but I decided to shorten it a bit. The full title is: “Wow in the World: The How and Wow of the Human Body: From Your Tongue to Your Toes and All the Guts in Between”. Which just reminds me of light novels. 🤣
I just love books about the body, especially when it is written for children and with humour. I have read the Horrible Science books so many times (as kid and as 18+) I just love them, they make me laugh and I learn facts in a fun and gruesome way. So I am hyped to see something not Horrible Science coming out. Something with, going by the Amazon preview, filled with humour and great art. The book is out, but I am kind of through my budget of this month, only got one book that I can still order (Bridge of Souls) as Amazon still hasn’t gotten it up on order. So next month. Next month this will definitely be one of the books I will be getting. So I will be eagerly waiting for this book! Eep!
