Waiting on Wednesday #9




Doll BonesTitle: Doll Bones
Author: Holly Black

Series: N/A
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Expected Publication: May 7, 2013



Description:
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 . . .
 
Why I'm Waiting:
I've been really wanting to read Middle Grade recently and this one sounds like a good start. Dolls are creepy add in the fact that said doll may be made from the ground up bones of a murdered girl and the story is bound to be freaky.
 
 
What are you guys waiting on this week? Leave me a link below and I'll check it out!

  3. Ah, this book creeps me out sooooo much. If I end up picking it up, it'll probably be because I convinced myself that since it's middle-grade, it won't be horribly terrifying, lol.

  4. And yes, I will now go on to have nightmares. I hate dolls. That scene in the next Mara with the doll? *shudder* I hope that you end up reading this, Sarah! :D
