Waiting on Wednesday {9}


see this lovely picture? It was made by Lindsay at The Violet Hour. Thank you so much for letting others use it!

Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!

This week my WoW pick is...

Above by Leah Bobet



Why yes, that DOES appear to be the Toronto skyline on the cover (or at least the CN Tower). Leah Bobet also lives in Toronto - fun fact! And I heard a rumour that the book is actually set in Toronto. Do you need any other reason to read this book? It's almost local for me :)

The description is absolutely intriguing. I want to know exactly what's going on with this book! This is Leah Bobet's debut and it looks like I'm really going to love this one. It almost seems quirky in its own way, you know? I mean, the girl on the cover has insect wings. Actually, it almost reminds me of an X-Men world with mutants pushed underground. I have no idea, I'm just guessing.

But I also really loooove this cover! (not just because it looks like Toronto) but it definitely gives off a vibe of what to (hopefully) expect from the book. I'm going to guess that it's Ariel on the cover, and there's something dark yet still optimistic about it.

The sad news is I have to wait far too long to read this one... It isn't supposed to be released until April 1, 2012. Scholastic, you can hurry up with this one now! ;)
