Waiting on Wednesday 03/20/19

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Imaginary Friend by Stephen Chbosky (October 1, 2019 by Grand Central Publishing)

Do you guys remember The Perks of Being a Wallflower? I’ve never read it, but as a teen growing up in the late 90s and 2000s, I can clearly recall how the book resonated with a lot of my high school peers. Well, twenty years later, the author’s second novel is apparently a literary horror about a boy and his creepy imaginary friend. I have no idea how this one’s going to turn out, but the story description sounds crazy intense and I am curious.

“Christopher is seven years old. Christopher is the new kid in town. Christopher has an imaginary friend. The epic work of literary horror from the #1 bestselling author of THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER.

We can swallow our fear or let our fear swallow us.

Single mother Kate Reese is on the run. Determined to improve life for her and her son, she flees an abusive relationship in the middle of the night with Christopher at her side. Together, they find themselves drawn to the tight-knit community of Mill Grove, Pennsylvania. It’s as far off the beaten track as they can get. Just one highway in, one highway out.

At first, it seems like the perfect place to finally settle down. Then Christopher vanishes. For six awful days, no one can find him. Until Christopher emerges from the woods at the edge of town, unharmed but not unchanged. He returns with a voice in his head only he can hear, with a mission only he can complete: Build a tree house in the woods by Christmas, or his mother and everyone in the town will never be the same again.

Soon Kate and Christopher find themselves in the fight of their lives, caught in the middle of a war playing out between good and evil, with their small town as the battleground.”

  1. I’m not sure what to think about this! It’s always jarring when an uber popular writer switches genres so dramatically. This is one I’ll keep an eye on, though!

  2. I love the sound of this one. I didn’t read The Perks so I’d definitely like to give this one a go and it releases during ‘creepy’ season which is perfect.
