Waiting on Wednesday: The Kingdom of Childhood by Rebecca Coleman

July 20, 2011

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly event hosed by Breaking the Spine blog, where various bloggers get to showcase the novels they are eagerly anticipating! I didn’t do one last week as it was my birthday so I apologise! But here’s my entry for this week:


 The Kingdom of Childhood by Rebecca Coleman

 Publisher: Mira Books

Release Date: 27th September 2011

Genre: Adult Fiction

Format: Paperback

This is the story of Zach and Judy, a boy and a woman, a student and a teacher. As their lives intersect, they are bonded by their similar circumstances– he, the lonely new kid, and she, the discontented wife– and begin an affair that at first thrills, then corrupts each of them until the lines between adult and child are blurred, and a lifetime of secrets unravels before them.

I haven’t heard a great deal about this book yet, but the subject it tackles certainly sounds intriguing and it will be interesting to see how it works. I also really like the cover!

Do leave a comment below and give me the link to your own WoW!

    Hmm the subject matter is a bit disturbing, not sure this is a book for me.

      It certainly won’t be for everyone that’s for sure. I quite like books that explore dark topics like this so I’m definitely intrigued by it.

    This one is going on my wish list! I get excited when I see anything that has adult themes, and the backstory sounds like just my thing.

    Thanks for sharing!
