Waiting and Wanting to Read Wednesday - Drizzle

This is a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  In this post we talk about books yet to be released that we are excited about.  I do that, but sometimes I also like to talk about great books I have, but are waiting to read.  I also like to try and find books other bloggers are using so that more books are shared!


This week I'm highlighting:

Drizzle by Kathleen Van Cleve

From Goodreads:
Eleven-year-old Polly Peabody knows her family’s world-famous rhubarb farm is magical. The plants taste like chocolate, jewels appear in the soil, bugs talk to her, and her best friend is a rhubarb plant named Harry. But the most magical thing is that every single Monday, at exactly 1:00, it rains. Until the Monday when the rain just stops. Now it’s up to Polly to figure out why—and whether her brother’s mysterious illness and her glamorous aunt Edith’s sudden desire to sell the farm have anything to do with it. Most of all, Polly has to make it start raining again before it’s too late. Her brother’s life, the plants’ survival, and her family’s future all depend on it.

Why I'm interested:
It just sounds like a fun read that will also have a lot of heart.  In a way it reminds me of Savvy by Ingrid Law.

this does sound like it will have heart. I can also see why it might remind you of Savvy. Great choice.

This sounds so adorable, and I absolutely LOVE the cover with all the umbrellas! Great pick. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

Sounds similar to the Candy Shop War by Mull. Which I liked, although I think I would have liked it better as a kid, of course. :)

This sounds absolutely adorable. I might have to pick it up and read it, and pass it on to my friend's son when I'm done...
