Waiting On Wednesdays

Book: The Betrayal Of Maggie Blair by Elizabeth Laird

Release date: April 18, 2011 from Houghton Mifflin

In seventeenth-century Scotland, saying the wrong thing can lead to banishment - or worse. Accused of being a witch, sixteen-year-old Maggie Blair is sentenced to be hanged. She escapes, but instead of finding shelter with her principled, patriotic uncle, she brings disaster to his door. Betrayed by one of her own accusers, Maggie must try to save her uncle and his family from the King's men, even if she has to risk her own life in the process.

I think the cover of this book is just beautiful!!

Waiting On Wednesday!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and its purpose is to spotlight those titles we can't wait for!

This week my Waiting On Wednesday is:

Wither by Lauren Destefano
Release Date: March 2011

"Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she trusts, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left."

Contest Alert!

Lush Budget Production is having a contest. Here is what they said:
"To honor the upcoming release of BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS, the sequel to BEAUTIFUL CREATURES. I have created the most awesome contest opportunity involving this amazing series. BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl is an amazing read (review to soon follow) and I believe that a signed copy of the ARC is wicked cool, but I have also have book marks, rubber bracelets, buttons, posters and a cool keychain to add to the mix. INTERESTED??? I hope so."
