Can't-Wait Wednesday: Doctor Who: Twelve Angels Weeping by Dave Rudden

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. It's based on Waiting On Wednesday hosted at Breaking the Spine.

Doctor Who: Twelve Angels Weeping: Twelve stories of the villains from Doctor Who by Dave Rudden
Expected publication: October 11th 2018 by BBC Children's Books

Twelve extraordinary Doctor Who stories, each featuring a monstrous villain from the Doctor Who world.

On every planet that has existed or will exist, there is a winter . . .

Many of the peoples of Old Earth celebrated a winter festival. A time to huddle together against the cold; a time to celebrate being half-way out of the dark.

But shadows are everywhere, and there are some corners of the universe which have bred the most terrible things, lurking in the cold between the stars.

Here are twelve stories - one for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas - to remind you that to come out of the darkness we need to go into it in the first place.

We are not alone. We are not safe. And, whatever you do: don't blink.

Written by popular children's author, and lifelong Doctor Who fan, Dave Rudden.

I'm a huge Doctor Who fan so I absolutely need need this book. It contains twelve stories each about a Doctor Who villain. I think it'll be perfect for both Halloween and Christmas. Also, it releases a couple of days after season 11 of Doctor Who will begin (with Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor!) so that makes it even better. I can't wait to read it!

    I've watched a few Dr. Who episodes and I don't know why I haven't jumped right in and watched them all. This sounds like the ultimate book for any true fan. I hope that you love it! :)

  16. I'm one of those weird people that know nothing about Doctor Who. 😖 BUTTTT! That cover is sooo freaking gorgeous!

  17. Oh, Steph, I'm SO sorry I haven't been returning comments.... I'm trying to catch up, so I PROMISE I'll be back!!

    I have never watched a "Doctor Who" episode, would you believe? As a HUGE science fiction fan, I really should start to check them out! So I'm going to see if I can. Unfortunately, I don't have Netflix, but there must be some other channel I can find them on.

    LOVE this cover, btw! Very interesting design! And the stories inside sound GREAT!

    Thanks for featuring this book! I'm adding it to my Goodreads shelves!! HUGS!!! <3 :)
