Waiting on Wednesday

Wednesday, October 7, 2009


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


Here's my pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:


Gateway by Sharon Shinn



From bn.com:
As a Chinese adoptee in St. Louis, teenage Daiyu often feels out of place. When an elderly Asian jewelry seller at a street fair shows her a black jade ring�and tells her that "black jade" translates to "Daiyu"�she buys it as a talisman of her heritage. But it's more than that; it's magic. It takes Daiyu through a gateway into a version of St. Louis much like 19th century China. Almost immediately she is recruited as a spy, which means hours of training in manners and niceties and sleight of hand. It also means stealing time to be with handsome Kalen, who is in on the plan. There's only one problem. Once her task is done, she must go back to St. Louis and leave him behind forever. . . .

I've heard many people talk about Sharon Shin. This books sounds different and really interesting.

I told my mom about the Jodie Sweetin memoir that you posted last week and she was super excited.

This sounds like a winner. Haven't heard of the book or author. And the cover is lovely.
