Waiting on Wednesday #19


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

My pick this week is:

Title: The Girl in the Clockwork Collar
Series: Steampunk Chronicles, Book 2
Author: Kady Cross
Release date: May 22nd, 2012

In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous.

Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves.

One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens.

Why I want to read it:
For several reasons actually: 1) I love the cover so, so much!! That purple dress and that heavy-looking collar! I haven't read "The Girl with the Steel Corset" yet, but I have it and am planning to do a Kady Cross marathon one of these weeks :) 2) I have it thru Netgalley and so all I need to do is click a button. How awesome is that!?!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Great pick! I have the first book and this one both on my shelf begging to be read but I let myself get buried in obligations :-( I'll definitely read this soon!

  2. Very great pick, I saw that before somewhere but didn't pay much attention to it.. But I guess I really should give it more thought... Thanks for sharing"

  3. I think I saw this on Netgalley, but I'm not sure. I haven't read the first book either, so I haven't been paying attention. The cover is very pretty, though.
    Followed back!

  4. I have heard such great things about this series, and I am so excited for this release! Nice pick.

  16. Oh, that's a good one. I liked the first book pretty much, so I'm looking forward to reading book 2. And I find, Steampunk is intriguing in itself.
    Thanks for sharing and stopping by our blog.

  17. I'm kind of waiting to hear a few reviews on this one because book one was just okay for me. It does sounds like the story is off in a good direction with book 2, though! Great pick!

    1. Well, I haven't read book one yet, so I don't even know what to expect.


I absolutely LOVE comments!!! So, if you stop by my blog, please leave me something nice :)
