Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It allows us to share what we're looking forward to read in the upcoming months or even years.

This post is coming to you from Kaitlyn! (Crazy, I know, right? I do want to take a moment to apologise to all you lovely followers. School and family stuff has been so hectic around here! I promise, I'm reading as much as possible. Hopefully, there will be a review within the next day or two from me!) 

Kaitlyn's Pick: 
The Diviners by Libba Bray
Publication Date: September 18th, 2012
Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies."

When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer--if he doesn't catch her first. 

I like that with this book, even in the summary, the author shows her style of writing and such. While this is a bit different, I have to admit, I'm drawn in by the oddity of the plot! I can't wait till it comes out!

Rhee's Pick:
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
Publication Date: June 12th 2012
Eighteen-year-old Luddite Elliot North has always known her place in this caste system. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family’s estate over love. But now the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress and threatening Luddite control; Elliot’s estate is floundering; and she’s forced to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth—an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliott wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she abandoned him.

But Elliot soon discovers her childhood friend carries a secret—-one that could change the society in which they live…or bring it to its knees. And again, she’s faced with a choice: cling to what she’s been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she’s ever loved, even if she has lost him forever.
This book has such a beautiful cover, and I have to say that's what drew me in, but the reason I'm dying to read it is because of it's plot. I love the sound of this futuristic novel and is it June yet?

So what are you guys waiting on this Wednesday? Let us know!
