Waiting On Wednesday #108: THE RABBIT BACK LITERATURE SOCIETY by Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen (A)


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 

This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

SUMMARY

Only nine people have ever been chosen by renowned children’s author Laura White to join the Rabbit Back Literature Society, an elite group of writers in the small town of Rabbit Back. Now a tenth member has been selected: a young literature teacher named Ella.

Soon Ella discovers that the Society is not what it seems. What is its mysterious ritual known as "The Game"? What explains the strange disappearance that occurs at Laura White’s winter party? Why are the words inside books starting to rearrange themselves? Was there once another tenth member, before her? Slowly, as Ella explores the Society and its history, disturbing secrets that had been buried for years start to come to light. . . .

In Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen’s chilling, darkly funny novel, The Rabbit Back Literature Society, praised as "Twin Peaks meets the Brothers Grimm" (The Telegraph), the uncanny brushes up against the everyday in the most beguiling and unexpected of ways. 




Why I'm waiting for THE RABBIT BACK LITERATURE SOCIETY...

This has me at "Twin Peaks meets the Brothers Grimm"!!!

This is said to be a dark, but humorous book. A book that you cannot rush through.
It is a book that demands your attention and time in order to experience and thoroughly understand its content, riddles and secrets. 

I'm sold!

Plus! Look at that bookcover!!!
