I decided to mix things up this week and post for Wishlist Wednesday instead of Waiting on Wednesday. Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper where you post a book that is on your wishlist (could have just made it on there or it may have been haunting you for awhile) and that you can't wait to own.

The monster showed up after midnight. As they do.
But it isn't the monster Conor's been expecting. He's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the one he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments, the one with the darkness and the wind and the screaming...
This monster is something different, though. Something ancient, something wild. And it wants the most dangerous thing of all from Conor.
It wants the truth. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Wishing I discovered this book in my local bookstore and I was immediately drawn by the cover and the artwork inside. I may not be a child anymore, but I still love pictures! From just the cover, it looks like some creepy version of The BFG. If you are a devoted follower, you know I love me some dark stories with children and menacing monsters. I must be messed up in the head. But this book has gotten such wonderful reviews so I will have to try this out. It was just added to my endless Amazon wishlist and I hope it is removed soon.
What's on your wishlist or what are you waiting for this Wednesday?
