Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week's selection: I Am Half Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley

Due out: November 1, 2011

Product Description taken from Amazon:

It’s Christmastime, and the precocious Flavia de Luce—an eleven-year-old sleuth with a passion for chemistry and a penchant for crime-solving—is tucked away in her laboratory, whipping up a concoction to ensnare Saint Nick. But she is soon distracted when a film crew arrives at Buckshaw, the de Luces’ decaying English estate, to shoot a movie starring the famed Phyllis Wyvern. Amid a raging blizzard, the entire village of Bishop’s Lacey gathers at Buckshaw to watch Wyvern perform, yet nobody is prepared for the evening’s shocking conclusion: a body found, past midnight, strangled to death with a length of film. But who among the assembled guests would stage such a chilling scene? As the storm worsens and the list of suspects grows, Flavia must use every ounce of sly wit at her disposal to ferret out a killer hidden in plain sight.

I'm a bit behind on this series, so knowing another one is coming out makes me think I need to get moving on them. I loved the first installment of Flavia de Luce.

I'm way behind on the series, having only read the first 2.

I am way behind also, only reading the first but loving Flavia so much. I wish I could say I would be caught up before Christmas.
