Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

The Unnaturalists
by Tiffany Trent

hitting shelves August 14th, 2012 from Simon & Schuster

In an alternate London where magical creatures are preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger.

Vespa Nyx wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum, but as she gets older, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband is looming large. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s—and with the Unnaturals.

As the danger grows, Vespa and Syrus find themselves in a tightening web of deception and intrigue. At stake may be the fate of New London—and the world.

My thoughts: While the description from Goodreads is intriguing enough, I wasn't really jumping up and down to read this one until I read the description at the authors site!! See it here .You tell me a book is about a museum of bizarre creatures and you've got my attention. You tell me a book involves Tesla, myth and magic,
a rift in time, and Fairyland, and I am ALL OVER IT.
