Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Wednesday has become my favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.
Expected publication: September 22nd 2015 by Katherine Tegen Books
Synopsis from Goodreads:
In 1818 Geneva, men built with clockwork parts live hidden away from society, cared for only by illegal mechanics called Shadow Boys. Two years ago, Shadow Boy Alasdair Finch’s life shattered to bits.
His brother, Oliver—dead.
His sweetheart, Mary—gone.
His chance to break free of Geneva—lost.
Heart-broken and desperate, Alasdair does the unthinkable: He brings Oliver back from the dead.
But putting back together a broken life is more difficult than mending bones and adding clockwork pieces. Oliver returns more monster than man, and Alasdair’s horror further damages the already troubled relationship.
Then comes the publication of Frankenstein and the city intensifies its search for Shadow Boys, aiming to discover the real life doctor and his monster. Alasdair finds refuge with his idol, the brilliant Dr. Geisler, who may offer him a way to escape the dangerous present and his guilt-ridden past, but at a horrible price only Oliver can pay…
This is nothing like what I normally read, but it sounds SO good! I just had to add it to my tbr.
What are you waiting on this week?
PS. I scheduled this post last weekend because I am an awesome Mom and got my daughter tickets to see One Direction in Kansas City last night (Tuesday). And don't think I missed out on any of the fun. I was right there beside my daughter! I'll leave you with one final thing: #LarryIsReal
