Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights books whose releases we are eagerly awaiting!
 
The Girl with the Iron Touch (Steampunk Chronicles #3)
    by: Kady Cross
 
Harlequin Teen, 384 pages
To be released: May 28, 2013
 
When mechanical genius Emily is kidnapped by rogue automatons, Finley Jayne and her fellow misfits fear the worst. What's left of their archenemy, The Machinist, hungers to be resurrected, and Emily must transplant his consciousness into one of his automatons—or forfeit her friends' lives.

With Griffin being mysteriously tormented by the Aether, the young duke's sanity is close to the breaking point. Seeking help, Finley turns to Jack Dandy, but trusting the master criminal is as dangerous as controlling her dark side. When Jack kisses her, Finley must finally confront her true feelings for him...and for Griffin.

Meanwhile, Sam is searching everywhere for Emily, from Whitechapel's desolate alleyways to Mayfair's elegant mansions. He would walk into hell for her, but the choice she must make will test them more than they could imagine.

To save those she cares about, Emily must confront The Machinist's ultimate creation—an automaton more human than machine. And if she's to have any chance at triumphing, she must summon a strength even she doesn't know she has....

Dear NetGalley, I will love you forever and ever if you would let me have an advanced copy of this book. Seriously.
 
 
I loved the first two books in this series and I CANNOT wait for this one. Especially after the end of the last book. I have to see how it plays out!!! And I need more Griffin in my life. Just sayin'.
I know not everyone is a fan of steampunk, but man I loved this series.
 
Anyways- what books are you guys on waiting on? Leave me a link to your WOW if you will, because I am always looking for new books to put on my radar!

  1. I'm a huge fan of the series too! It's actually not available locally, so I just read the ebooks, but everytime I'm in the bookstore, I'm still looking for copies. Just in case!

    Do you know of other books like this?

    1. Cassie Clare's Infernal Devices are similar. And I've heard the Incarceron series is pretty good, but I haven't actually read it yet.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    2. Ughhh I'm so sad. I just realized that I want to read Infernal Devices but they're not being sold in the cheaper bookstores in our country. They're pretty expensive in the mainstream bookstores. :(

    3. Bummer! Do you have an e-reader or anything? Would buying e-books be cheaper?

  2. I have the first of this series but I haven't started it yet. I'm glad you think it's good, maybe that's enough incentive to get me to read it.

  12. Holy MOSES! is this on net galley? /dies /revives /runstonetgalley. I LOVE Kady Cross and Finley Jane!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I kind of stumbled across a bunch of book tour organizers and started volunteering. Some require you have 200 followers for a blog tour, but others do not. Google Literary Quill promotions, Read Between the Lines, Entangled Publishing, Prism Book Tours, Xpresso Cafe.

    Those are the ones I'm signed up for so far! There's a ton out there and they are so much fun! Some are just cover reveals with a chance at winning something for hosting or participating in the rafflecopter. Others are full reviews with e-books! I KNOW Read Between the Lines aka Anna has spots open on her upcoming tours. http://www.rbtlreviews.com/p/tour-host-form.html
