Waiting on Wednesday – 13
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
It’s been a few months since I’ve joined the fun of Waiting on Wednesday, but with all these wonderful books coming soon, I couldn’t resist! How not to be excited about a new Gaiman novel? Or intrigued by September Girls’ premise?

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
(June 18th, 2013)
It began for our narrator forty years ago when the family lodger stole their car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Dark creatures from beyond the world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and menace unleashed – within his family and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it.
His only defense is three women, on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is an ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang.
