Pre Pub Book Buzz: Travelers Rest by Keith Lee Morris

Holy crap the year has gone by fast! Too fast in my opinion. Especially when you consider I'm now looking at January releases for my TBR. I still have a mountainous pile of 2015 titles to get to! Ah, the plight of the bookworm, right?

So I very recently came across Keith Lee Morris's Travelers Rest and couldn't resist sharing it with you today. I mean, it's kind of a shame it isn't out in time for October horror reading but frankly I think it's going to make equally fabulous snowed in reading this winter. We'll see if you agree.

Here's a bit about the book from Goodreads:

The Addisons-Julia and Tonio, ten-year-old Dewey, and ne'er-do-well Uncle Robbie-are driving home, cross-country, after collecting Robbie from detox. When a blizzard strikes outside the eerie town of Good Night, Idaho, they seek refuge at the Travelers Rest, a once-opulent but now crumbling hotel where, they soon discover, the laws of the universe are bent.

Once inside the hotel, the family is separated. Something mysterious, tied to a tragic event more than a century past, prevents them, day after day, from reuniting, until Julia is faced with an impossible choice. Can she save her family from the fate of becoming Souvenirs-those citizens trapped forever in magnetic Good Night-or disappearing entirely? What her choice entails is revealed in prose as dizzyingly beautiful as the mystical world Morris creates.

Well??? Am I right?!

Travelers Rest is due out from Little Brown in early January, plenty of time to mark your calendars or even add it to your holiday wish lists!
