Can't Wait Wednesday (221)


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: A hilarious, offbeat debut space opera that skewers everything from pop culture to video games and features an irresistible foul-mouthed captain and her motley crew, strange life forms, exciting twists, and a galaxy full of fun and adventure.

Captain Eva Innocente and the crew of La Sirena Negra cruise the galaxy delivering small cargo for even smaller profits. When her sister Mari is kidnapped by The Fridge, a shadowy syndicate that holds people hostage in cryostasis, Eva must undergo a series of unpleasant, dangerous missions to pay the ransom.

But Eva may lose her mind before she can raise the money. The ship’s hold is full of psychic cats, an amorous fish-faced emperor wants her dead after she rejects his advances, and her sweet engineer is giving her a pesky case of feelings. The worse things get, the more she lies, raising suspicions and testing her loyalty to her found family.

To free her sister, Eva will risk everything: her crew, her ship, and the life she’s built on the ashes of her past misdeeds. But when the dominoes start to fall and she finds the real threat is greater than she imagined, she must decide whether to play it cool or burn it all down.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  Seriously, I couldn't even read the synopsis without laughing which I think is  a very good sign.  I need to know more about a syndicate called The Fridge and Eva and her attitude sound right up my alley.  Also, psychic cats - look at their little helmeted heads on the cover!!!

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

    1. I need to know too. Although I'm not a cat person, they do look awfully cute in helmets. Maybe more cats should wear them.

  7. I prefer my books without a foul-mouthed person so since it's advertising it I probably wouldn't pick this up. It also doesn't sound like something I would read but it does sound totally you! You like weird things. ;)
