Waiting on Wednesday (#61)


You know the story. This is a meme created by Breaking the Spine and every week we pick books we're waiting for. Here are our picks for this week.

Our pick #1

Sixteen-year-old Charlotte and her fellow refugees have scraped out an existence on the edge of Britain’s industrial empire. Though they live by the skin of their teeth they have their health (at least when they can find enough food and avoid the Imperial Labor Gatherers) and each other. When a new exile with no memory of his escape from the coastal cities or even his own name seeks shelter in their camp he brings new dangers with him and secrets about the terrible future that awaits all those who have struggled has to live free of the bonds of the empire’s Machineworks.

The Inventor’s Secret is the first book of a YA steampunk series set in an alternate nineteenth-century North America where the Revolutionary War never took place and the British Empire has expanded into a global juggernaut propelled by marvelous and horrible machinery.



Expected publication: April 22nd, 2013

Our pick #2



Small towns are nothing if not friendly. Friendship, Wisconsin (population: 688) is no different. Around here, everyone wears a smile. And no one ever locks their doors. Until, that is, high school sweetheart Ruth Fried is found murdered. Strung up like a scarecrow in the middle of a cornfield.

Unfortunately, Friendship’s police are more adept at looking for lost pets than catching killers. So Ruth’s best friend, Kippy Bushman, armed with only her tenacious Midwestern spirit and Ruth’s secret diary (which Ruth’s mother had asked her to read in order to redact any, you know, sex parts), sets out to find the murderer. But in a quiet town like Friendship—where no one is a suspect—anyone could be the killer.



Expected publication: January 4th, 2014

We'd love to see your picks so feel free to link them up.

Until the next time,

  6. I have never heard of The Inventor's Secret but I have heard of No One Else Can Have You! Personally, the cover and title for that one is absurd. I'm curious if the actual book is or not though...

    Great picks! <33

  12. These are both great picks this week. While I really love the sound of The Inventor's Secret I am almost more curious about No One Else Can Have You. Sounds like Pleasantville meets Murder She Wrote lol.

  13. I had NO IDEA that No One Else Can Have You involved a murder mystery. I thought it was just a light romance. Now I'm definitely curious! I also love the sound of The Inventor's Secret. A steampunk series set in an alternate nineteenth-century? Yes please! Great picks, you two. :)

  30. I didn't know Andrea Cremer was releasing a steampunk book, I really like the cover, it's such a cool mechanical heart. But I can't wait to read No One Else Can Have You. I love a good mystery and I really hope the story is unpredictable.
    Great picks!

    1. Yeah she is and I agree about the cover. I hope you'll get to read it soon then. Thanks Aman :)

  31. Gosh, all these AWESOME books! I haven't read anything by Andrea Cremer, but I've heard a lot about her, and I simply LOVE the cover for her latest. I mean, how can a geared heart not intrigue you? The cover for NO ONE ELSE CAN HAVE YOU is a little weirder, but also uber creepy - because a hanged reindeer. Nothing beats that. And I can't deny myself a good mystery, so great picks, you two!
