Can't Wait Wednesday

  
Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa at Wishful Endings which spotlights and discusses forthcoming books that bloggers are looking forward to reading. Generally it's about books that haven't been released yet. This meme is based on Waiting on Wednesday, formerly hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
There are so many exciting new books on the horizon, so without further ado, this week's Can't Wait For book is . . .

 Baby Teeth 
Publisher:  St. Martin's Press
Publication Date:  July 17, 2018

From Goodreads:  Sweetness can be deceptive.

Meet Hanna.

She’s the sweet-but-silent angel in the adoring eyes of her Daddy. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But Mommy stands in her way, and she’ll try any trick she can think of to get rid of her. Ideally for good.

Meet Suzette.

She loves her daughter, really, but after years of expulsions and strained home schooling, her precarious health and sanity are weakening day by day. As Hanna’s tricks become increasingly sophisticated, and Suzette's husband remains blind to the failing family dynamics, Suzette starts to fear that there’s something seriously wrong, and that maybe home isn’t the best place for their baby girl after all.


My thoughts:  I'm fascinated by stories in which a child comes between parents.  This one sounds like it fits the bill in a very unique way, and Hanna sounds like a master manipulator.

Doesn't this one sound creepy and odd? I've thought so too. Not sure if I will read it. I don't really like extra 'bad seed' type children books. Especially if the story is told while they are still children primarily. Scary!

It does sound creepy, and I thought it would be a good addition to my summer reading list.

I can't wait for this read - the creepier the better!

Reminds me of a movie called The Bad Seed. It will be interesting to see who ends up being on top in the end, mom or daughter...
Enjoy!

Oh sounds creepy! I'm not sure this one is for me but I'll be curious to see what you think of the book over all.

Greg said...

Oh this sounds so chilling! I've been seeing this one around and I must say, I am SO curious!

Sometimes I hate stories with creepy baby characters...but I am definitely curious.
