Waiting On Wednesday Vol. 9

Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Now that I'm particpating in The 2012 Debut Author Challenge I have a gaggle of books I'm waiting on. Here are my top three.

Above by Leah Bobet

Matthew has loved Ariel from the moment he found her in the tunnels, her bee's wings falling away. They live in Safe, an underground refuge for those fleeing the city Above. . . one terrifying night, an old enemy invades Safe with an army of shadows, and only Matthew, Ariel, and a few friends escape Above. As Matthew unravels the mystery of Safe's history and the shadows' attack, he realizes he must find a way to remake his home--not just for himself, but for Ariel, who needs him more than ever before. 

 This is Bobet's first novel and it is a stand alone novel, which aren't easy to come by nowadays !

Something Strange and Deadly
Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper— The Dead are rising in Philadelphia

I want to read this book mostly so I can compare and contrast it to Dearly, Departed.


Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past

Revamping of fairytales has become very popular lately (ie Grimm, Once Upon A Time, Mirror, Mirror etc.) and Cinder seems to be a blend of many different genres.

  22. *jumps up and down* Covers like these are totally easy on the eyes. In fact they're like mega adhesives, gluing wandering eyes to their fabulousness. I love the idea of zombies in a time with big fluffy dresses and top hats, so I'll admit I'm the most excited for Something Strange & Deadly!
