Colsten Can’t Wait: The Waking Forest by Alyssa Wees


Welcome to Colsten Can’t Wait, which is my version of Waiting on Wednesday. Every week, my cat and I pick out an upcoming book we’re super pumped for and highlight it! This week, we picked out The Waking Forest.


The waking forest has secrets. To Rhea, it appears like a mirage, dark and dense, at the very edge of her backyard. But when she reaches out to touch it, the forest vanishes. She’s desperate to know more—until she finds a peculiar boy who offers to reveal its secrets. If she plays a game. To the Witch, the forest is her home, where she sits on her throne of carved bone, waiting for dreaming children to beg her to grant their wishes. One night, a mysterious visitor arrives and asks her what she wishes for, but the Witch sends him away. And then the uninvited guest returns. The strangers are just the beginning. Something is stirring in the forest, and when Rhea’s and the Witch’s paths collide, a truth more treacherous and deadly than either could ever imagine surfaces. But how much are they willing to risk to survive?

Another creepy woods book! When I first saw this one, I didn’t think I would be that interested. It just didn’t look like something that would be up my alley. But, I have heard such great things about and everybody who seems to be reading it now, loves it a lot. So, I decided to find out more about it and see if it would actually be something I would like! And it actually sounds really good! I should know by now that I’m willing to give any creepy woods book a shot. And this one sounds like it’s going to have a lot of other good stuff too. The character’s sounds really interesting. I’m also very intrigued with how the two narrators (I’m pretty sure) story’s are going to connect. It sounds like it could be something great if it’s woven together correctly. Plus, there looks to be so many secrets to be uncovered, just from the summary alone. It should be interesting to see how many are in the whole book!


The Waking Forest comes out March 12th, 2019! You can add it on Goodreads and pre-order a copy in the meantime!

Thank you for reading!
