Waiting On Wednesday – 59

Hello gentle reader,

today I’m waiting on THE SHADOW CABINET (Shades of London #3) by Maureen Johnson (expected publication: 16th September 2014 in the US/Canada, but 5th February 2015 in the UK). It’ll be the third book in this YA Fantasy series, which will have four books in total.

I enjoyed the first two books and the prequel of this series about teens fighting ghosts in London, and I’m looking forward to reading the next instalment.

The Shadow Cabinet

The blurb is super spoilery if you haven’t read the first books, but you can read it on Goodreads here if you want.

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by book blogger Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.

Have you heard about this book? Is it on your TBR list? What are you waiting on this week?
