Can't Wait Wednesday (188)


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


FROM GOODREADS: Caitlin of House Sans Merci is the young half-human pilot of a sentient mechanical dragon. Returning from her first soul-stealing raid, she discovers an unwanted hitchhiker.


When Caitlin is framed for the murder of her brother, to save herself she must disappear into Industrialized Faerie, looking for the one person who can clear her.



Unfortunately, the stakes are higher than she knows. Her deeds will change her world forever.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I'm going to be honest, I don't know if I really want to read this or if I'm just in love with the cover.  I mean, LOOK AT IT!  And yes, I'm yelling.  If anyone has read this author, let me know all the reasons I should definitely give this one a go!

WHAT BOOK CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR THIS WEEK????

  6. I've got several books by Swanwick, he's been writing for years, but it's been a long time since I've read him. This sounds amazing!

    1. I agree. I figured you'd grab a copy and then I'd want it anyways eventually.

    1. I think the mechanical aspect makes him even cooler - or maybe it's a she.
