Waiting On Wednesday (Born Wicked)

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some witches:

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: February 7th 2012
Per Order It: Amazon

Cate Cahill and her sisters are considered eccentric bluestockings—a little odd, a little unfashionable, and far too educated for their own good. The truth is more complicated; they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it could mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave. Before their mother died, she entrusted Cate with keeping them safe and keeping everyone, including their father, in the dark about their powers. When her father employs a governess and Cate begins to receive notes from her missing, presumed-mad godmother, her task becomes much more difficult. As Cate searches for answers in banned books and rebellious new friends, she must juggle unwanted proposals, tea parties, and an illicit attraction to the new gardener. Cate will do anything to protect her sisters, but at what cost to herself? --Goodreads
I know this book is not coming out for quite some time.  I mean, most of us are not even looking at 2012 releases, yet.  Well, I stumbled upon this one last week and wanted to share because it sounds simply awesome.  The cover is breath-taking and I love historical fiction books.  What's not to love?  It's about a bunch of witches, which are not really my thing, but I'm willing to try and read this one just because the storyline itself sounds fantastic. 

So what are you waiting for this fine Wednesday?
