Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm waiting on The Astonishing Mistakes of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone.
Release Date: March 14, 2017
Waited on by: Sam
You'd think that after I took a bullet in my arm following my last case that I'd be timid about going in guns blazing a second time. But you'd be wrong. I faced down death, and the only bad thing that happened was that I got a cool scar. Which is a like a tattoo, but with street cred.
I may have been a little overconfident this time. And that may have seriously clouded my judgment. Some small, but confidently made, mistakes include: Unwisely meeting up with an internet stalker in real life. Eating a large breakfast before discovering a corpse. Kidnapping. Standing uncomfortably close to the edge of a steamboat while musing that nothing bad could possibly happen. Kidnapping, again That's the thing about a sense of invulnerability -- you usually get it right before things go terribly, terribly, wrong.

The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss
The Astonishing Mistakes of Dahlia Moss
The Questionable Behavior of Dahlia Moss
The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss was one of my top reads back in 2015. I just fell in love with Dahlia, who is a geekier version of Veronica Mars. I loved her snark and awkwardness and laughed so much it hurt. Therefore, I have high hopes for this second book. I hope it will give me even more zany characters and another fun mystery imbued with tons of geeky and pop culture references.
