Waiting on Wednesday 02/24/16

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick:

Like A River Glorious by Rae Carson: September 27, 2016 (Greenwillow Books)

I’m actually having a real hard time putting together this Waiting on Wednesday right now, for you see, all want to do is flail my face all over my keyboard. Mere words cannot describe my excitement.

And also, Like a River Glorious? Like a cover glorious, more like! Just beautiful.

Like A River Glorious“After a harrowing journey across the country, Leah Westfall and her friends have finally arrived in California and are ready to make their fortunes in the Gold Rush. Lee has a special advantage over the other new arrivals in California—she has the ability to sense gold, a secret known only by her handsome best friend Jefferson and her murdering uncle Hiram.

Lee and her friends have the chance to be the most prosperous settlers in California, but Hiram hasn’t given up trying to control Lee and her power. Sabotage and kidnapping are the least of what he’ll do to make sure Lee is his own. His mine is the deepest and darkest in the territory, and there Lee learns the full extent of her magical gift, the worst of her uncle, and the true strength of her friendships. To save everyone, she vows to destroy her uncle and the empire he is building—even at the cost of her own freedom.

The second epic historical fantasy in the Gold Seer trilogy by Rae Carson, the acclaimed author of The Girl of Fire and Thorns.”

  1. This cover is freaking stunning. I still need to check out the first book from the library, though. But honestly, all the blue and the stone-like typography is giving me life.


  2. Yes! I knew I wouldn’t be alone in showcasing this book this week:-) That cover is just stunning, and I’m excited to find out what happens, now that the gang is in California.


  3. I have yet to dive into my copy of the first one – seriously, I MUST get to it soon. This cover is STUNNING. WOW! I’ve heard great things about the first one too so I can’t wait to get caught up too so I can properly FLAIL with you!!


  4. that cover is rather gorgeous and I just love the colours. I’ve not got on board with this one but I think perhaps I’ll have to make a note of it. Sounds good and all that flailing around has got to be encouraging methinks.
