2017: Wishlist Wednesday (1)

So there hasn't really been any weekly Wishlist Wednesday or Waiting on Wednesday posts or memes or whatever, but I felt like I would just continue it on my own. Or maybe start something up if I can ever convince myself to be more consistent here. In any case, here's the book I'm most excited for at the moment!

Author: Alexandra Bracken
Book Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
Release Date: September 5th, 2017
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Goodreads Synopsis:

"I would say it's a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness."
Prosper is the only unexceptional Redding in his old and storied family history - that is, until he discovers the demon living inside him. Turns out Prosper's great-great-great-great-great-something grandfather made - and then broke - a contract with a malefactor, a demon who exchanges fortune for eternal servitude. And, weirdly enough, four-thousand-year-old Alastor isn't exactly the forgiving type.
The fiend has reawakened with one purpose - to destroy the family whose success he ensured and who then betrayed him. With only days to break the curse and banish Alastor back to the demon realm, Prosper is playing unwilling host to the fiend who delights in tormenting him with nasty insults and constant attempts trick him into a contract. Yeah, Prosper will take his future without a side of eternal servitude, thanks.
Little does Prosper know, the malefactor's control over his body grows stronger with each passing night, and there's a lot Alastor isn't telling his dim-witted (but admittedly strong-willed) human host.

Now, if you know anything about me, it's that I'm a HUGE fan of Alexandra Bracken and her writing. She's such an incredible author and has a tendency of leaving me in awe with all the worlds she creates, in such diverse ways. So I am most certainly looking forward to this book!
