Waiting On Wednesday (21) The Near Witch By: Victoria Schwab

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme, which is being hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that shows off the books that you have been pining for there release, and we can't wait any longer, so I use this meme to settle the addiction temporarily, until we are able to own the book. So Join in.
So this weeks "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Near Witch By: Victoria Schwab

The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children. 

If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company. 


And there are no strangers in the town of Near.
The Near WitchThese are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life.
But when an actual stranger—a boy who seems to fade like smoke—appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.
The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.
As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.
Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon forget.
(Summary Thanks to Goodreads)

I am so excited for this one. I first heard of this book once on a book blog chat when I first met Victoria. If you don't know her look her up she's awesome. Well once hearing that she was writing this book I was pumped to check it out. What a better WoW then The Near Witch a book I'm pinning for. Hope you enjoyed. This book is set to release August the 2nd. I also cant wait to see the final cover.

P.S. Don't forget to let me know what you are waiting for this Wednesday.

Happy Reading!!

I'm super excited about The Near Witch too! There seem to be a lot of witch books coming out this year, which all sound interesting. August seems so far away...if only it could get here a bot sooner.

I really can't wait to read The Near Witch Either. I follow her on the YARebels channel on youtube and she got her mum to read a snippet of The Near Witch on there and it sounded so amazing.
