Waiting on Wednesday *39*

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly 'hump-day' feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together & spotlight an upcoming release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick for this week:

The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two (Fairyland #3)

Release Date: October 8th, 2013

Author: Catherynne M. Valente

“One of the most extraordinary works of fantasy, for adults or children, published so far this century.—TIME Magazine, on the Fairyland series

September misses Fairyland and her friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. She longs to leave the routines of home, and embark on a new adventure. Little does she know that this time, she will be spirited away to the moon, reunited with her friends, and find herself faced with saving Fairyland from a moon-Yeti with great and mysterious powers.

Here is another rich, beautifully told, wisely humorous, and passionately layered book from New York Times-bestselling author, Catherynne M. Valente.
Though I still need to play catch up & read book #2 before I dive into this one, I'm still over the moon that book # 3 is coming out this Fall!  I've heard that there will be a total of 5 books in this series and every time a new title or cover comes out, I feel almost giddy! I can't wait to read about the new whimsical adventures September is sure to have in Fairyland - especially since this one seems to involve the moon in some way ♥... but more than anything, I long for more of author Catherynne M. Valente's  enchanted & captivating prose.

Have any of you read the first books in this series?  
If not, is it on your TBR shelf yet? ;)
Don't forget to link me up to your WoW posts!


  1. This sounds good. Thanks for sharing :)


  2. I want to read this series so badly! I just need to figure out what section this is in my library and grab it.

  3. I haven't started this series yet, but I so want to, as it looks plain awesome! The covers are always great too, I think they're what drew me to the series in the first place. I'll definitely have to read it soon, great pick!

    My WoW

  4. I own the first book of the series but still haven't gotten around to reading it yet...

  5. I only read Deathless by this author, but the writing was out of this world fabulous, so she is definitely on my must-buy list. Great pick, Micheline! :)

  6. I cannot get enough of the covers and titles in this series! They are so brilliantly whimsical. Perfect for a fairy tale. Ideally, I would be able to read books #1 and #2 before this third one comes out... we'll see! I really cannot wait to read it. Your description of her writing is so lovely!

  7. Oh, I need to get my hands on these books! The covers look amazing and the titles are really compelling. I am very curious about the books.
    Hope you get a copy soon!

  8. I think I have the first book on my kindle already... but I haven't read it yet. I'm so bad - I read a review, find the book pretty cheap on amazon, and just one-click away. Even if I have more than enough books already.

    Have a great afternoon Micheline :)
