Waiting on Wednesday: DOLL BONES by Holly Black

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

My WoW for this week is centered on a book that sounds most creepy and wicked; DOLL BONES by Holly Black. Just look at the cover (it gives me chills) and then once I read the synopsis I knew it had to be read. Now that you know my WoW, what is yours?

Zach, Poppy and Alice have been friends for ever. They love playing with their action figure toys, imagining a magical world of adventure and heroism. But disaster strikes when, without warning, Zach’s father throws out all his toys, declaring he’s too old for them. Zach is furious, confused and embarrassed, deciding that the only way to cope is to stop playing . . . and stop being friends with Poppy and Alice. But one night the girls pay Zach a visit, and tell him about a series of mysterious occurrences. Poppy swears that she is now being haunted by a china doll – who claims that it is made from the ground-up bones of a murdered girl. They must return the doll to where the girl lived, and bury it. Otherwise the three children will be cursed for eternity . . .

As someone who grew up in a house full of porcelain dolls (my mom collected them), I'm pretty sure that this book would give me nightmares, even if it is MG. :D Great pick, though! This is the first I've heard of it!

I've heard a ton of fantastic things about Holly Black, but I've never read a book by her... I guess I'll be changing that soon because this book sounds pretty awesome!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
