Waiting on Wednesday *136*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week: 

The Reader by Traci Chee
Sea of Ink and Gold #1
Expected Publication: September 13th 2016 by Putman

Sefia knows what it means to survive. After her father is brutally murdered, she flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped, leaving Sefia completely alone, none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin’s been taken, or if she’s even alive. The only clue to both her aunt’s disappearance and her father’s murder is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book—a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the help of this book, and the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and find out what really happened the day her father was killed—and punish the people responsible.
I love stories about survival. Especially if they have a mystery to them - not to mention a very special book.  It doesn't take much for readers to believe that a book could have wondrous properties, hold valuable secrets or be life-altering in it's own right. And than the last line of the blurb is the icing on the cake: revenge!  Yes. Please.

  4. YES! I'm really looking forward to this one. I was fortunate enough to snag an eARC from First To Read, and it actually became available for me to download today so I am very excited. I hope we'll both love this one when we read it!

This blog is an award-free zone. I appreciate the thought but I can't invest the time needed.
