The Screaming Statue (The Curiosity House #2) by Lauren Oliver (WOW #5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about!


In this second book in the exceptional Curiosity House series by bestselling author Lauren Oliver and shadowy recluse H. C. Chester, four extraordinary children must avenge their friend’s death, try to save their home, and unravel the secrets of their past . . . before their past unravels them.

Pippa, Sam, Thomas, and Max are happy to be out of harm’s way now that the notorious villain Nicholas Rattigan is halfway across the country in Chicago. But unfortunately their home, Dumfreys’s Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders, is in danger of closing its doors forever.

But their troubles only get worse. The four friends are shocked when their beloved friend, famous sculptor Siegfried Eckleberger, is murdered. As they investigate, they find clues that his death may be tied to the murder of a rich and powerful New York heiress, as well as to their own pasts.


The Screaming Statue releases on May 3, 2016 from HarperCollins

I totally loved the first book in this series and I can't wait to learn more about the characters and this world. If you haven't read this series yet, think AHS:Freak Show for a younger audience!

So, what are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  1. This sounds like a fun Middle Grade! I'm waiting on 'Down with the Shine' by Kate Karyus Quinn - it's YA.

  3. This sounds fun. I really love Lauren Oliver's writing but haven't been too sure about this series--I don't read a lot of middle grade. Hope you enjoy this though.
