"Waiting On" Wednesday (48): Doll Bones

"Waiting On" a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm excitedly waiting on....

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.

This book had me at the creepy cover and title and the whole "haunted by a china doll" thang...I don't think I can not read this book now! I've never read any of Holly Black's books but I've always heard great things about them and this one looks creeptastically chilling and fun.

I love tho sound of this one as well! Haunted by a china doll sounds really scary lol I've always been kind of scared of dolls since Chucky. I've also heard great things about Holly Black's other books and want to try those as well.

I hadn't heard of this one before so thanks for selecting it! The book sounds kinda freaky but good at the same time so I'll probably figure it out. Thanks for sharing and good luck with that super long wait! ^.^ If you'd like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday post you can do so here. :)
