“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what I’m waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Author: Sharon Cameron
♡ Release Date: September 1, 2012(North America)
♡ Publisher: Scholastic (North America)
♡ Synopsis: When Katharine Tulman’s inheritance is called into question by the rumor that her eccentric uncle is squandering away the family fortune, she is sent to his estate to have him committed to an asylum. But instead of a lunatic, Katharine discovers a genius inventor with his own set of rules, who employs a village of nine hundred people rescued from the workhouses of London.
Katharine is now torn between protecting her own inheritance and preserving the peculiar community she grows to care for deeply. And her choices are made even more complicated by a handsome apprentice, a secretive student, and fears for her own sanity.
As the mysteries of the estate begin to unravel, it is clear that not only is her uncle’s world at stake, but also the state of England as Katharine knows it.
♡ Why?: Steampunk? Spies? Peculiar people? Losing one’s sanity? I’m in. I can’t wait for this one to come out, even if it’s more MG-sounding than YA. That’s all good. This one sounds fabulous, and I hope it’s as great as its blurb makes it out to be.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
