[Waiting On Wednesday: Of Dreams And Rust]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Of Dreams and Rust"
Author: Sarah Fine
Release Date: August 4th, 2015


War erupts in this bittersweet sequel to "Of Metal and Wishes", inspired by The Phantom of the Opera and called “relentlessly engrossing” by The Romantic Times.

In the year since the collapse of the slaughterhouse where Wen worked as her father’s medical assistant, she’s held all her secrets close. She works in the clinic at the weapons factory and sneaks away to nurse Bo, once the Ghost, now a boy determined to transform himself into a living machine. Their strange, fragile friendship soothes some of the ache of missing Melik, the strong-willed Noor who walked away from Wen all those months ago—but it can’t quell her fears for him.

The Noor are waging a rebellion in the west. When she overhears plans to crush Melik’s people with the powerful war machines created at the factory, Wen makes the painful decision to leave behind all she has known—including Bo—to warn them. But the farther she journeys into the warzone, the more confusing things become. A year of brutality seems to have changed Melik, and Wen has a decision to make about him and his people: How much is she willing to sacrifice to save them from complete annihilation?

If Sarah Fine writes it, I will read it. It's really as simple as that. But it's also the sequel to one of my favorite books of the year!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

I heard such great things about the first book, so I'm not surprised that you are looking forward to this one. Hope you get to read it soon!

You just reminded me I meant to read Of Metal and Wishes. I didn't know it was a series, so yay for that! And yay for something Phantom inspired. Great pick. WoW

I still have to read the first one but I heard tons of great things, so I have a feeling I'm going to need this one too!
