WoW: The Greenglass House

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

It’s wintertime at Greenglass House. The creaky smuggler’s inn is always quiet during this season, and twelve-year-old Milo, the innkeepers’ adopted son, plans to spend his holidays relaxing. But on the first icy night of vacation, out of nowhere, the guest bell rings. Then rings again. And again. Soon Milo’s home is bursting with odd, secretive guests, each one bearing a strange story that is somehow connected to the rambling old house. As objects go missing and tempers flare, Milo and Meddy, the cook’s daughter, must decipher clues and untangle the web of deepening mysteries to discover the truth about Greenglass House—and themselves.

Kate Milford is one of my favorite authors. Her books The Boneshaker and The Broken Lands are enchanting and full of interesting twists on old tales. This new book has pretty much every element I love in a book, and since it is written by her I know I'll love it.


Greenglass House comes out in August of 2014 (oh the waiting!). But in the meantime you can see the full cover and read an excerpt here at The Book Smugglers.

What are you anticipating this week?

  3. What a delightful cover! I always love MG, but I'll admit that I don't read it as much as I should. Thanks for putting this on my radar.

    1. Her books are wonderful. And The Broken Lands is more YA if you're looking to try out her writing style.

  4. I love it when someone posts an unexpected and, to be honest, less well-known book. These types of WoW books mean so much more than the really big releases, you know? This sounds really intriguing. I'll be looking it up for sure! Great post!

    1. I get sort of tired of seeing the same books over and over. And I love when I find something I've never heard of.
