Waiting for Wednesday (25)


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

My Pick this week is;

IronSkin(Ironskin #1) by Tina Connolly

Jane Eliot wears an iron mask.

It’s the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain—the ironskin.

When a carefully worded listing appears for a governess to assist with a "delicate situation"—a child born during the Great War—Jane is certain the child is fey-cursed, and that she can help.

Teaching the unruly Dorie to suppress her curse is hard enough; she certainly didn’t expect to fall for the girl’s father, the enigmatic artist Edward Rochart. But her blossoming crush is stifled by her own scars, and by his parade of women. Ugly women, who enter his closed studio...and come out as beautiful as the fey.

Jane knows Rochart cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things is true? Step by step Jane unlocks the secrets of her new life—and discovers just how far she will go to become whole again


Releasing on 2nd of October, 2012

What book are you impatiently, anxiously waiting on?

I got an ARC for this from NG but I've somehow lost my enthusiasm for it because most of the reviews published were saying that the story wasn't that awesome. I still want to give it a whirl but I feel like my mind's been preconditioned already. LOL

Braine - I know what you mean. I got the ARC too. I'll give this a go and see how it feels. If it's not good, well it will be a DNF then.
