Waiting on Wednesday #17


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am waiting on:
by Claudia Gray
Release Date: September 13th 2011
Publisher: HarperCollins
(HarperTeen)

Available for Pre-Order at:

B&NAmazon | BAM | HarperTeen | The Book Depository | Borders

It's about a servant girl named Tess in 1912, who wants to escape from the house where she works, and most particularly the lecherous young lord of the manor. But that's not her biggest problem. While on a voyage to America, where she plans to escape and start a new life, she meets Alec, who's ruggedly handsome, fabulously wealthy, intelligent and yet so clearly troubled that she'd rather not fall for him, but she does. That also is not her biggest problem. Alec, it turns out, is a werewolf ... one cursed to change every night, unless and until he surrenders his independence and joins the Brotherhood, a pack of violently misogynistic werewolves who have been tracking him for months. You'd think that would be their biggest problem, wouldn't you?

But no. Their biggest problem -- though they don't know it yet -- is that they're aboard the RMS Titanic.

Why am I waiting on this book??

I actually just found out about this book last week, and it sounds really interesting! I've only read the first book in Claudia Gray's Evernight series, and I really enjoyed it. I can imagine this will be a great read as well! (I mean, come on... The Titanic?!?! Werewolves??!)

What are you WoWing for this week??? Can't wait to see what everyone chose!
