"Waiting On" Wednesday 3

Red Glove by Holly Black
Release date: 4/5/11

The cons get twistier and the stakes get higher in Red Glove, the sequel to White Cat. 

Okay, I read White Cat ages before I started this blog, but if I had just read it, y'all would be inundated with squeals and ramblings about how utterly and completely awesome it was. If you haven't read it yet, you really must - but I wouldn't blame you for waiting until the end of March so that you don't have to endure the torturous wait for the sequel along with me!

White Cat was super clever, funny and really original. I loved Cassel, and his family and was totally sucked in by the style. Top points to plot, character and style all in one book - MUST READ.

Plus I saw Holly Black, along with Sarah Rees Brennan (The Demon's Lexicon, etc.), at a book signing and she was very funny and charming in person as well. All good things!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event spotlighting upcoming releases we are highly anticipating. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

  4. The Storm Before Atlanta
    By Karen Schwabach
    Publication date: December 28, 2010

    At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.

  5. I haven't heard of this book or White Cat. I hope you enjoy it.
