Waiting On Wednesday (18)

Time for the"Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Waiting on Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
 This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Warped
by Maurissa Guibord
To be Published: January 11, 2011

Tessa doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But there's something weird about the dusty unicorn tapestry she discovers in a box of old books. She finds the creature woven within it compelling and frightening. After the tapestry comes into her possession, Tessa experiences dreams of the past and scenes from a brutal hunt that she herself participated in. When she accidentally pulls a thread from the tapestry, Tessa releases a terrible centuries old secret. She also meets William de Chaucy, an irresistible 16th-century nobleman. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together, they must correct the wrongs of the past. But then the Fates step in, making a tangled mess of Tessa's life. Now everyone she loves will be destroyed unless Tessa does their bidding and defeats a cruel and crafty ancient enemy.

 This book sounds like a blend of time travel and magic.  Just my cup of tea!  I also LOVE the cover. 

What book are YOU waiting on?

Warped does look good, and has a great cover. It's #1 on my list for the debut author challenge. Glad the release date is almost here.

Great pick, and I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading :)

This one is on my wishlist too! There haven't been a lot of YA books dealing with unicorns recently, and that plus the time travel makes this one sound fresh and different :)

The Storm Before Atlanta
By Karen Schwabach
Publication date: December 28, 2010

At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.
