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: February 23rd 2016 by Scholastic Press

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Ever since the Titans first appeared in her Detroit neighborhood, Astrid Sullivan’s world has revolved around the mechanical horses. She and her best friend have spent countless hours watching them and their jockeys practice on the track. It’s not just the thrill of the race. It’s the engineering of the horses and the way they’re programmed to seem so lifelike. The Titans are everything that fascinates Astrid, and nothing she’ll ever touch.

She hates them a little, too. Her dad lost everything betting on the Titans. And the races are a reminder of the gap between the rich jockeys who can afford the expensive machines to ride, and the working class friends and neighbors of Astrid’s who wager on them.

But when Astrid’s offered a chance to enter an early model Titan in this year’s derby, well, she decides to risk it all. Because for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, it’s more than a chance at fame or money. Betting on herself is the only way she can see to hang on to everyone in the world she cares about.

I already have my arc waiting to be read....

  14. There's been so much hype around Titans, and the more details I get the more I see why everyone is so excited. This sounds like the book is going to be as fast-paced as any race could be. I can't help but imagine just how high the stakes will get in a world as strangely crafted as this!

  15. First of all, I apologize for the very late comment back..... I have been unusually busy these past few days, so my blogging has suffered.

    This is an absolutely AWESOME pick!!! I had seen this book on Goodreads, but only in passing. I didn't stop to investigate further. Now that I have checked out the synopsis, I really MUST have this book! The plot is SO original! I love horses (of course, I prefer the real thing, lol), so, even if it's mechanical ones, I have to read a book about them.

    Thanks for featuring this!! Also, thanks for dropping by and commenting on my own WOW post!! : )
