Waiting on Wednesday - The Girl Who Drank the Moon

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming release that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: August 9, 2016
Publisher: Algonquin Press
Author: Kelly Barnhill
Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. 

Early reviews have been really good about The Girl Who Drank the Moon.  Plus it sounds like really interesting.  Yeah, it's technically a Middle Grade book, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy it.  Just from the synopsis it sounds beautiful.  So this has made my TBR and is one I'm eagerly waiting on.
