Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at 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 the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday book is Small Favors by Erin A. Craig!
Goodreads Synopsis: Ellerie Downing lives in the quiet town of Amity Falls in the Blackspire Mountain range–five narrow peaks stretching into the sky like a grasping hand, bordered by a nearly impenetrable forest from which the early townsfolk fought off the devils in the woods. To this day, visitors are few and rare. But when a supply party goes missing, some worry that the monsters that once stalked the region have returned. As fall turns to winter, more strange activities plague the town. They point to a tribe of devilish and mystical creatures who promise to fulfill the residents’ deepest desires, however grand and impossible, for just a small favor. But their true intentions are much more sinister, and Ellerie finds herself in a race against time before all of Amity Falls, her family, and the boy she loves go up in flames.
About the author: New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows, Erin A. Craig has always loved telling stories. After getting her B.F.A. from the University of Michigan, in Theatre Design and Production, she stage managed tragic operas with hunchbacks, séances, and murderous clowns, then decided she wanted to write books that were just as spooky. An avid reader, decent embroiderer, rabid basketball fan, and collector of typewriters, Erin makes her home in West Michigan with her husband and daughter.
I already enjoyed Erin A. Craig’s first book, House of Salt and Sorrows, so I’m sure Small Favors won’t disappoint! The synopsis is wonderfully spooky, with hints of monsters and magic and a creepy forest. All of this is enticing, and I know from her previous work that Erin A. Craig is capable of a great blend of mystery and horror. I’ve got a spot on my TBR Pile just for this book, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!
Small Favors will be released on July 27th!
