I am Waiting again on Wednesday! This meme is hosted at Breaking the Spine and is based on a book you can’t wait to read that hasn’t been published yet.
So my book for this week is: AMONG OTHERS
Winner of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novel. Winner of the 2011 Nebula Award for Best Novel.
The blurb: ‘It doesn’t matter. I have books, new books, and I can bear anything as long as there are books.’
Fifteen-year-old Morwenna lives in Wales with her twin sister and a mother who spins dark magic for ill. One day, Mori and her mother fight a powerful, magical battle that kills her sister and leaves Mori crippled. Devastated, Mori flees to her long-lost father in England. Adrift, outcast at boarding school, Mori retreats into the worlds she knows best: her magic and her books. She works a spell to meet kindred souls and continues to devour every fantasy and science fiction novel she can lay her hands on. But danger lurks…She knows her mother is looking for her and that when she finds her, there will be no escape.
This is very far in advance to be waiting but I have a lovely proof from Corsair and the cover looks beautiful! Not to mention the synopsis – books and magic, a heroine that devours fantasy and science fiction, a kindred spirit! This looks ace and I can’t wait to get stuck in! (Plus it has a great quote from Patrick Rothfuss who is a complete legend!)
