Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's highly anticipated read(s):

Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness

Release Date: July 10, 2012

Completely fell in love with A Discovery of Witches and it feels like I've been waiting *forever* for the sequel. Can't friggin' wait!

Deborah Harkness exploded onto the literary scene with her debut novel, A Discovery of Witches, Book One of the magical All Souls Trilogy and an international publishing phenomenon. The novel introduced Diana Bishop, Oxford scholar and reluctant witch, and the handsome geneticist and vampire Matthew Clairmont; together they found themselves at the center of a supernatural battle over an enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782. Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending,Shadow of Night plunges Diana and Matthew into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries, delivering one of the most hotly anticipated novels of the season.

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

Release Date: July 24, 2012

Zombies placed in the 1800s?
Yes, Please :) 

The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

Happy Reading Everyone :)

  1. Hi! new linky follower :)

    I'm not a big Zombie fan but Something Strange and Deadly's cover is so gorgeous which made me rethink the description. I don't know if I'll rush to get it but I definitely want to read SSaD at some point. Great pick!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW earlier today.

  2. I have yet to read A Discovery of Witches, even though it is sitting on my shelves. I heard so many great things about it!
    I'm curious about Something Strange and Deadly; zombies from the past, what's not to love?

  3. I really want Something Strange and Deadly! I love the cover and it sounds so awesome.

    Thanks for stopping by, dear!
