Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
I rarely do Waiting on Wednesday memes, but once in a while, I'm tempted. Tonight, I just read a review on a book that I didn't even realize was out. Sometimes, I go through life with tunnelvision. I know a friend has a book coming out, and I know another long-distance friend had her book, and then another, but I've also been consumed with my health issues and Citiville (a facebook game - PEOPLE! I NEED NEIGHBORS!) , and of course I've been obsessed with my grandchildren. But to make a meadering story short and more to the point! I had read a while ago, that Carrie Vaughn was going into Young Adult territory (along with quite a few of my other favorite authors) but I didn't realize that so much time had passed that this book has not only been written, but titled and printed! geez.

Steel by Carrie Vaughn - a time traveling-Pirate

adventure containing a sword and a kick-ass young woman. Sounds good.

I'm pretty sure it's going to be a good read, after all her werewolf books have all been very fun and intense reads.

excerpt is available (click on cover) at Carrie Vaughn's website.

the cover - it's a good cover - except the cover model is looking a little skinny - very skinny. Please - young women and older women have enough body image issues, put some normal sized people on these covers - at least a healthy weight. It's not normal to be so skinny your jaws jut out.

Carrie Vaughn is also the author of Discord's Apple.

Ms Vaughn has been busy - she's also releasing:

After the Golden Age in April 2011

Kitty's Big Trouble in June 2011

Kitty's Greatest Hits in August 2011 (a gathering of short stories in Kitty's world)
some excerpts are available by clicking on the book covers. when there's no excerpt, then I just link it to whatever I can find (Charlie Brown, pictures of my grandchildren.....lol - just kidding- or am I? you'll just have to click on them to make sure now, won't you?)


  1. I love Vaughn's writing and am very anxious to read this one too. Great pick!

  2. Phoenix sent me Discord's Apple for x-mas. I have it here, and I think I'm going to read it after I read The Iron Witch. When I get some $$$bills, I'm going to look for Steel, it seems that good. I'm reminded by all this also, that I'm behind in a few of the Kitty books...and there's more on the way. I love the Kitty books - have you read them?

  3. Great choice. I've got to get Steel it looks so good.

  4. Great pick! I'm really looking forward to finally reading this book!

    Happy Wednesday!

  5. This book looks really good! I really like the cover- I can't wait for this one to come out.
    Here's mine:
    Happy reading!

  6. That cover really captures your attention,looks very good.
