Originally hosted by Breaking the Spine, Waiting on Wednesday has now linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings and it’s exactly as it sounds: we post about books that haven’t been published yet, but we’re salivating by the time the publication date hits.
This week, the book that got a cover and now has me squeeing to all ends of the Earth is:
Warlock Holmes: The Signs of Nine by G.S. Denning
Publication Date: May 21st, 2019 by Titan Books

Warlock Holmes may have demons in his head, but now Dr. John Watson has a mummy in his bloodstream. Specifically that of the sorcerer Xantharaxes, who when shredded and dissolved in an 8% solution, results in some extremely odd but useful prophetic dreams.

I just positively adore this series. It’s the perfect romp when you want to read a fantasy twist on Sherlock Holmes that is never ending when it comes to humor and it just constantly makes me feel good when I read it. I binge these books in less sittings than it takes to count on one hand and I just absolutely adore them. So seeing the cover for the fourth installment (and so much red) just has me giddy. If you haven’t checked out this series, now is the perfect time to do so!
