“Waiting On” Wednesday 08.24.2011

Another meme? Why not? ;p

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
 
 

My pick of the week (or maybe even the year) is:

Goliath (Leviathan #3)
By: Scott Westerfeld
Illustrations by: Keith Thompson
Publication Date: September 2011 (that’s next month! woot!)

Synopsis from Simon and Schuster: Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alek’s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service.) And if they weren’t technically enemies.

The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is as it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeld’s brilliant trilogy.

I’m very excited about this book! So excited that it’s on top of my Goodreads wishlist this year.

I don’t read much steampunk, but my beloved and a friend–whose taste in books I trust–really loved this series, so I decided to give it a try.  I’m now reading Westerfeld’s other works (the Midnighters series), but this series is still my favorite among his books so far.  🙂
