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.  Though someday I need to change the title that I post this under---I almost never post it on Wednesday! :D

by Sharon Cameron

hitting shelves April 28th, 2015
from Scholastic 

Rook is a retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel set in the future; it follows “a Sunken City gone mad, an unwanted betrothal, and 13 innocents who will die unless a young woman with a legend can save them.”

My thoughts:  So, obviously no official synopsis on this one yet and just a tiny hint of the story, BUT I don't need to know more than the author to absolutely crave this one. I am such a huge fan of Sharon Cameron's steampunk series, A Dark Unwinding, that I will definitely be picking up any of her future work! And this cover?? Fantastic.

    That cover is outstanding! I haven't read The Scarlet Pimpernel, (I really should!) but I am intrigued by this book…hopefully a more detailed synopsis will come out soon. Thanks for putting this one on my radar!

  2. Ohh interesting cover! Great pick, adding this to my tbr list

    There's more of a synopsis on the Amazon listing for the Kindle version!! http://www.amazon.com/Rook-Sharon-Cameron-ebook/dp/B00OBOA9SO Sounds amazing. I was a huge fan of A Dark Unwinding also, can't wait for Rook!

  4. I saw this cover this week as well. SO DAMN PRETTY. I need to know more about the book, though :D Hoping it will sound AWESOME. <3 I'm glad you love the other books by the author, though, that makes me more excited that this book will be good, hih :) Thank you for sharing. <3 Hope you will love this book :)

  5. Wait, what? THIS LOOKS SO GOOD. I only know the story of The Scarlet Pimpernel from Across a Star-Swept Sea (which I adored), but I don't even need that to be completely sold. OH my gosh.
