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

Title: The Falconer
Author: Elizabeth May

Language: English
Publisher: Gollancz
Expected Publication: September 19, 2013


Heiress. Debutant. Murderer. A new generation of heroines has arrived.
Edinburgh, Scotland, 1844
Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined for a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s social events – right up until a faery killed her mother.
Now it’s the 1844 winter season and Aileana slaughters faeries in secret, in between the endless round of parties, tea and balls. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, she sheds her aristocratic facade every night to go hunting. She’s determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city’s many dark alleyways.
But the balance between high society and her private war is a delicate one, and as the fae infiltrate the ballroom and Aileana’s father returns home, she has decisions to make. How much is she willing to lose – and just how far will Aileana go for revenge?

Why I am lurking on this: This mix just sounds all kinds of awesome. I have to try it out!

Title: Where the Stars Still Shine
Authors: Trish Doller

Language: English
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Expected Publication: September 24, 2013


Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She's never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love--even with someone who seems an improbable choice--is more than just a possibility.

Why I am lurking on this: I really, really enjoyed Something Like Normal, and I am looking forward to meeting new teens with a new interesting story.

  1. The Falconer is very high on my list of autumn books! I love fairies, be they evil or kind. And a noble girl hunting them secretly? Yes please!!
    I admit I never bothered to read to the end of the descripion of Where the Stars still Shine before but that was a mistake. Books dealing with the aftermath of a kidnapping can be very very powerful so I'm putting this on my TBR now.
