We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
It should have been the perfect summer. Sent to stay with her late mother’s eccentric family in London, sixteen-year-old Joan is determined to enjoy herself. She loves her nerdy job at the historic Holland House, and when her super cute co-worker Nick asks her on a date, it feels like everything is falling into place.
But she soon learns the truth. Her family aren’t just eccentric: they’re monsters, with terrifying, hidden powers. And Nick isn’t just a cute boy: he’s a legendary monster slayer, who will do anything to bring them down.
As she battles Nick, Joan is forced to work with the beautiful and ruthless Aaron Oliver, heir to a monster family that hates her own. She’ll have to embrace her own monstrousness if she is to save herself, and her family. Because in this story . . .
. . . she is not the hero.
Once again I choose to highlight a book I already have an eARC for haha. But I don’t hear anyone talk about this book while I think it sounds awesome and definitely deserves some more hype. This is Vanessa’s debut and it will be a trilogy.
Only A Monster has some of my favorite ingredients. First off it is set in London, one of my favorite settings ever and an almost instant add on Goodreads haha. Next this is about a family of monsters! Sign me up. And lastly; while I smell a love triangle, I do love that the love interest is either going to be an enemy (actually both seem to be enemies) or another monster. Yes please!!
I’m super excited to start this eARC and will definitely tell you all about it as soon as I finish it. Had you heard about this book yet? And do you plan on reading it? Let me know in the comments down below!
