Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My pick is a book I came upon while engaging in one of my favorite pastimes which is browsing for books. Like I need more books right. Well that aside, this book has really sparked my interest. It’s called Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce, releasing on July 10, and it sounds fantastic! Here’s a bit about the book from Amazon.com…
Acclaimed author Graham Joyce’s mesmerizing new novel centers around the disappearance of a young girl from a small town in the heart of England. Her sudden return twenty years later, and the mind-bending tale of where she’s been, will challenge our very perception of truth.
For twenty years after Tara Martin disappeared from her small English town, her parents and her brother, Peter, have lived in denial of the grim fact that she was gone for good. And then suddenly, on Christmas Day, the doorbell rings at her parents’ home and there, disheveled and slightly peculiar looking, Tara stands. It’s a miracle, but alarm bells are ringing for Peter. Tara’s story just does not add up. And, incredibly, she barely looks a day older than when she vanished.
Award-winning author Graham Joyce is a master of exploring new realms of understanding that exist between dreams and reality, between the known and unknown. Some Kind of Fairy Tale is a unique journey every bit as magical as its title implies, and as real and unsentimental as the world around us.
Does that not sound good? As anyone who reads my blog knows I do love a magical quality in books so this one is right up my alley. July is a long time to wait though! How about you? Are you waiting for anything good this week?
