Waiting On Wednesday (aka) Start Up the DeLorean

November 17, 2010

Breaking the Spine

This is my first week participating in the Waiting on Wednesday tradition. I’m giving it a go, especially since I’ve already begun an

extensive list of books I’m waiting for in anticipation of doing another Start Up the DeLorean post. Here’s the books I’ve seen around and about:

All Amazon says is:

The Demon’s Talisman is the thrilling and suspenseful conclusion to the Demon’s Lexicon trilogy.

But…you can read the first chapter here.

I’m fresh off reading it and, though I thought I was going to be disappointed that this book moved away from Nick and Mae, I wasn’t. Yes!

 

I saw this one on GoodReads:

April 2011

ora, the popular girl and happy consumer, witnesses a horrific bombing on a shopping trip with her mother. In Nora’s near-future world, terrorism is so commonplace that she can pop one little white pill to forget and go on like nothing ever happened. However, when Nora makes her first trip to a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, she learns what her mother, a frequent forgetter, has been frequently forgetting. Nora secretly spits out the pill and holds on to her memories. The memory of the bombing as well as her mother’s secret and her budding awareness of the world outside her little clique make it increasingly difficult for Nora to cope. She turns to two new friends, each with their own reasons to remember, and together they share their experiences with their classmates through an underground comic. They soon learn, though, they can’t get away with remembering.

No description on this one, but I love the cover. It’s listed as historical fantasy. Does anyone have any more information than I have?

And I love, love, love the cover of M.K. Hobson’s next book, The Hidden Goddess.

April 26, 2011

Being engaged to a socially-prominent warlock in 19th century New York can be daunting—especially if you’re a witch from a small town in California who’s never sat at a dinner table with more than one fork.

A month has passed since the adventures that brought Emily Edwards from Lost Pine to New York City, but navigating New York magical society is as taxing and treacherous as anything she’s faced so far. Emily’s future mother-in-law is a sociopathic socialite who is not at all pleased with her only son’s choice of a bride. Dreadnought Stanton—Emily’s fiance—has a dark past which has by no means given up all its secrets. And Emily’s own past may hold answers that a shadowy group of Russian scientists will give anything to possess.

Emily will have to brave all these challenges—not to mention an ancient sect of Aztec blood-sorcerers bent on plunging the world into apocalypse—if she and Dreadnought are to have any hope of living happily ever after.

That’s it for me. What are you waiting for?
