Can't Wait Wednesday: Strange Practice


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme featuring the books that we're eagerly waiting to be released! It's hosted by Tessa @ Wishful Endings.

Title: Strange Practice
Author: Vivian Shaw
Series: Dr. Greta Helsing #1
Release Date: July 25, 2017
Find it Here: Amazon // Goodreads

Greta Helsing inherited the family's highly specialized, and highly peculiar, medical practice. In her consulting rooms, Dr. Helsing treats the undead for a host of ills - vocal strain in banshees, arthritis in barrow-wights, and entropy in mummies. Although barely making ends meet, this is just the quiet, supernatural-adjacent life Greta's been groomed for since childhood.

Until a sect of murderous monks emerges, killing human and undead Londoners alike. As terror takes hold of the city, Greta must use her unusual skills to stop the cult if she hopes to save her practice, and her life.
Why I want this: I love books with creepy atmospheres and have a little bit of the supernatural to them. I also want to blow that cover up and put in on the wall in my book room. It's so amazing!! Even though it comes out next week, Strange Practice seems like one of those great books to read around Halloween time. And I love to plan my Halloween reads way in advance! What are you waiting on this week?
