Waiting on Wednesday (7)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.

I am really excited about my pick for this week.

Title: 'A Question of Magic’
Author: E.D. Baker
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Pages: 272
Release Date: 1 Oct. 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

Serafina was living the normal life of a village girl, when she gets a mysterious letter--her first letter ever, in fact--from a great aunt she's never heard of in another village. Little does 'Fina know, her great aunt is actually a Baba Yaga, a magical witch who lives in an even more magical cottage.

Summoned to the cottage, Serafina's life takes an amazing turn as she finds herself becoming the new Baba Yaga. But leaving behind home and the boy she loves isn't easy, and as Serafina grows into her new and magical role answering the first question any stranger might ask her with the truth, she also learns about the person she's meant to be, and that telling the future doesn't always mean knowing the right answers.

In her inimitable and bestselling way, ED Baker has crafted a funny and romantic story that combines some fabulous details from the original Slavic tale, with an all new spin!

May I squee about this book?! I fell in love with Baba Yaga stories when I did a unit on them for my children’s literature class in Grad school. And of course, October is the perfect month for a new witchy tale, my favorite. Squee!

What are you waiting for this week?

Happy Reading!

    1. I don't know if this is going to be a series or a stand alone novel. Either way, I love Baba Yaga and can't wait to see how the author brings that to the page.

      Happy Reading!
