Can't-Wait Wednesday #10: The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is:

On Christmas Eve five years ago, Holly was visited by three ghosts who showed her how selfish and spoiled she'd become. They tried to convince her to mend her ways.

She didn't.

And then she died.

Now she's stuck working for the top-secret company Project Scrooge--as the latest Ghost of Christmas Past.

Every year, they save another miserly grouch. Every year, Holly stays frozen at seventeen while her family and friends go on living without her. So far, Holly's afterlife has been miserable.

But this year, everything is about to change...

I hadn't even heard of this book when it arrived on my doorstep, but the cover got my attention right away. It's so simple, but so gorgeous! And the story looks so intriguing, too. A Christmas Carol retelling with a Scrooge who was warned to change and didn't listen? Sign me up! This looks like a perfect read for a chilly fall evening with a cup of tea. Can't wait!
