Waiting on Wednesday (47)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. We haven't done Waiting on Wednesday since early last year, and we decided it's about time to bring it back.  So here's my very first WOW pick:
I absolutely adored William Ritter's Jackaby last year! Like it was one of my top five favorites of 2014! It's was just a plain fun read and I need more of those in my life! If you want to know more of my thoughts, you can see my Read This F@!%ing Book Post on it. The sequel, Beastly Bones, has been one of my most anticipated books of 2015! I can't wait to get my hands on it! I need to know what kind of shenanigans Jackaby has pulled Abigail into this time. And I want more Douglass, Jenny, and Charlie! The first book did an excellent job of building Abigail's relationships with each of the characters and I have my fingers crossed that we get more romance in this one!

The worst part of waiting for this one is that I actually already have it. But I can't read it yet because it's the last of my September ARCs that I need to read so I have to finish the others first. *sobs*

Beastly Bones
(Jackaby #2)
William Ritter
Release: September 22, 2015
Goodreads Amazon
The highly anticipated follow-up to the “rich world” of the “lighthearted and assured debut,” featuring an “irresistible character” whose first thrilling and original adventure “demands sequels.”
“I’ve found very little about private detective R. F. Jackaby to be standard in the time I’ve known him. Working as his assistant tends to call for a somewhat flexible relationship with reality.”

In 1892, New Fiddleham, New England, things are never quite what they seem, especially when Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer R. F. Jackaby are called upon to investigate the supernatural.

First, a vicious species of shape-shifters disguise themselves as a litter of kittens, and a day later, their owner is found murdered with a single mysterious puncture wound. Then in nearby Gad’s Valley, now home to the exiled New Fiddleham police detective Charlie Cane, dinosaur bones from a recent dig mysteriously go missing, and an unidentifiable beast starts attacking animals and people, leaving their mangled bodies behind. Charlie calls on Abigail for help, and soon Abigail and Jackaby are on the hunt for a thief, a monster, and a murderer.

What book are you waiting on?
