I’ve never done one of these posts before, but I decided to join in on the fun, mostly because there are tons of books I’m looking forward to, and what better way to talk about them? So!
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My first WoW post is for Libba Bray’s The Diviners (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers):
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
I got a chance to read the first couple of chapters via the BEA Buzz Book put out by NetGalley, and I was immediately grabbed by Evie’s character. It’s hard to root against a girl who wants more from her life, and who feels smothered in her small town life. Plus, it has just the right mix of history (roaring 1920s!) and paranormal (the ability to learn someone’s secrets by touching an object they’ve touched!). As a huge fan of Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy, I already know how great she is at mixing fantasy with history, and I am definitely looking forward to seeing what she’s come up with.
Release Date: September 18, 2012
What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Feel free to link me up! :)
