Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler (Kathy Dawson Books):
When Alice’s father goes down in a shipwreck, she is sent to live with her uncle Geryon–an uncle she’s never heard of and knows nothing about. He lives in an enormous manor with a massive library that is off-limits to Alice. But then she meets a talking cat. And even for a rule-follower, when a talking cat sneaks you into a forbidden library and introduces you to an arrogant boy who dares you to open a book, it’s hard to resist. Especially if you’re a reader to begin with. Soon Alice finds herself INSIDE the book, and the only way out is to defeat the creature imprisoned within.
It seems her uncle is more than he says he is. But then so is Alice.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
First of all, any book with a library featuring prominently in it is going to grab my attention, librarian that I am. Add to that the fact that this is a middle-grade novel – and I ADORE middle-grade novels – and I was instantly sold. I love that this has a fairy tale-ish feel to it, but love even more than our main character, Alice, is going to most likely be one of those stubborn, determined, strong female characters that I love so much to read about. I cannot wait for this one to be released!
Release Date: April 15, 2014
