Waiting on Wednesday #28: Tin Star by Cecil Castellucci & The Drowned Forest by Kristopher Reisz
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!
This week in WoW, I’m obsessing over a Southern Gothic and an Epic Science Fiction novel with aliens! Check out my top pick this week and you’ll see why….
On their way to start a new life, Tula and her family travel on the Prairie Rose, a colony ship headed to a planet in the outer reaches of the galaxy. All is going well until the ship makes a stop at a remote space station, the Yertina Feray, and the colonist’s leader, Brother Blue, beats Tula within an inch of her life. An alien, Heckleck, saves her and teaches her the ways of life on the space station.
When three humans crash land onto the station, Tula’s desire for escape becomes irresistible, and her desire for companionship becomes unavoidable. But just as Tula begins to concoct a plan to get off the space station and kill Brother Blue, everything goes awry, and suddenly romance is the farthest thing from her mind. [/note]
Epic Sci-Fi here I come!!! Tin Star sounds right up my alley. Space stations, remote colonies, ALIENS! Heck yeah…I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!
A Southern Gothic about a drowned girl who’s haunting her best friend, who has been lost without her and may be dragged down into the river with her unless she finds a way to put Holly to rest. [/note]
I was sold on “Southern Gothic”! How could I not want to read The Drowned Forest? And look at that beautiful cover. Can you say….AH-MAY-ZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So what about you? What games or books are you waiting on?
