Waiting On Wednesday: 3 Hot Upcoming YA Releases!

WoW is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine and showcases upcoming releases we're dying to read!




Maureen Doyle McQuerry
May 2012
On her 18th birthday, Lena Mattacascar decides to search for her father, who disappeared into the northern wilderness of Scree when Lena was young. Scree is inhabited by Peculiars, people whose unusual characteristics make them unacceptable to modern society. Lena wonders if her father is the source of her own extraordinary characteristics and if she, too, is Peculiar. On the train she meets a young librarian, Jimson Quiggley, who is traveling to a town on the edge of Scree to work in the home and library of the inventor Mr. Beasley. The train is stopped by men being chased by the handsome young marshal Thomas Saltre. When Saltre learns who Lena's father is, he convinces her to spy on Mr. Beasley and the strange folk who disappear into his home, Zephyr House. A daring escape in an aerocopter leads Lena into the wilds of Scree to confront her deepest fears.
A fun steampunk, fantasy, romance adventure! Although her wings look a bit chicken wimpy-ish. She needs to work out and pump those babies up!  




Tiffany Trent
Aug 2012
In an alternate London where magical creatures are preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger. 
Vespa Nyx wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum, but as she gets older, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband is looming large. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s—and with the Unnaturals. 
As the danger grows, Vespa and Syrus find themselves in a tightening web of deception and intrigue. At stake may be the fate of New London—and the world.
More steampunk adventure? Awesome! 


Sarah Beth Durst
Sept 2012
In a desert land where serpents made of unbreakable glass fly through the sky and wolves made of only sand hunt within storms, Liyana is destined to be a vessel, to sacrifice herself so that her clan's goddess can inhabit her body... but her goddess never comes.
Something new and interesting from Sarah Beth Durst is always a treat! 



What are you waiting for?

Vessels and The Unnaturalists are both books I want to read.

I love all 3 of those covers. I don't read steampunk but I think they have the most beautiful covers :)

Oh, all three of these look fantastic! Great picks!

I'm definitely intrigued by all three, especially Vessel!

Fabulous choices :D

Jenny said...

I want all of these. ALL OF THEM I TELL YOU! Such pretty covers and they all sound so brilliant. Must. Have.

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

Steampunk is the next big thing! It's exploding out of everywhere! I still haven't made my mind up about it, but I'm loving the cover for THE PECULIARS.

Katie (Call Me Crazy) said...

I still need to read a book that's Steampunk! I definitely want to read The Peculiars now, it sounds so amazing! Vessel sounds incredible too! :)

Danny said...

OOOOoOoo Isn't The Peculiars one of the best covers ever????!?!? Have to read this soon - I hope it's as good as the cover promises :)

Agnieszka Nashi said...

The Peculiars has such a gorgeous cover. I didn't like it tho, and it saddens me greatly. :( You can read my review at my blog.

But the other picks sound great!

Here's my WoW. ♥

Blodeuedd said...

Ohhh all please :D

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Yes to all of them. I just love Vessels cover. I would love to wear a dress like that and have it flowing in that way. It might look weird for everyday... but still... ;D

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

Those covers are so gorgeous! I have Peculiars from NetGalley, but with that cover, if I like it, I'm going to have to have it! And I haven't seen The Unnaturalists anywhere! And Vessel looks so good! These are all such great picks for the covers and their synopsis!

Jennifer said...
