"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's WoW selection is...
Author: Francesca Lia Block
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Publication Date: August 27, 2013
Why I'm waiting: I. LOVE. THIS. COVER. I try my best not to judge a book by its cover, but gawd, is that thing not stunning?!? Also, "like a female Odysseus"? Really? I love Homer's The Odyssey. Love it. Is that weird? I feel like it's weird to admit that. Oh, well...can't take it back now, right? Anyway, this book is also giving me a Burn Bright vibe, and since I haven't been able to convince myself to buy the rest of that series yet since it's not offered here in the states, this sounds like a great substitute.
Eh, maybe not a substitute, but definitely something to hold me over for a bit. I hope it's as good as it sounds. I haven't read anything else from this author, but her Weetzie Bat series is pretty popular. Any of you read that?
What are you waiting on this week? Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!
