Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand @CynthiaHand @harperteen

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa @ Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. Find out more here.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

AUTHOR: Cynthia Hand
FORMAT: Hardcover
LENGTH: 224 pages
GENRE: Young Adult, Fantasy
ISBN: 9780062318503
On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she'd become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways.

She didn't.

And then she died.

Now she's stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge--as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.

Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly's afterlife has been miserable.

But this year, everything is about to change. . . .

I love Christmas stories, and I am especially looking forward to reading this retelling of the Dickens classic!

  1. I love retellings of this story by Dickens. :D

  2. This seems like a fun spin on A Christmas Carol. I really enjoy twisted retellings like this. Thanks for sharing and I hope you love it!

    I've heard a lot of good things about this series but I have not yet picked it up. I'm sure I will get around to it eventually. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I plan on reading this in December. I love non-traditional Christmas reads. Nice choice.

  5. OMG I can't believe how freaking awesome this book sounds?!?!

    A Christmas Carol is my fave, and seeing the consequences of someone who DIDN'T actually change is so creative and intriguing!! And it's also written by Cynthia Hand! I haven't read My Lady Jane, the book she co-wrote with two other great authors, but I've heard fantastic things about it too.
    I didn't even know this was coming out! I can't wait for October 24th.
