Waiting on Wednesday #58

 
 



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released!

Here are my picks for the week:
 
A White Room
 
Summary:
 
At the close of the Victorian Era, society still expected middle-class women to be “the angels of the house,” even as a select few strived to become something more. In this time of change, Emeline Evans dreamed of becoming a nurse. But when her father dies unexpectedly, Emeline sacrifices her ambitions and rescues her family from destitution by marrying John Dorr, a reserved lawyer who can provide for her family.

John moves Emeline to the remote Missouri town of Labellum and into an unusual house where her sorrow and uneasiness edge toward madness. Furniture twists and turns before her eyes, people stare out at her from empty rooms, and the house itself conspires against her. The doctor diagnoses hysteria, but the treatment merely reinforces the house’s grip on her mind.

Emeline only finds solace after pursuing an opportunity to serve the poor as an unlicensed nurse. Yet in order to bring comfort to the needy she must secretly defy her husband, whose employer viciously hunts down and prosecutes unlicensed practitioners. Although women are no longer burned at the stake in 1900, disobedience is a symptom of psychological defect, and hysterical women must be controlled.

A novel of madness and secrets, A White Room presents a fantastical glimpse into the forgotten cult of domesticity, where one’s own home could become a prison and a woman has to be willing to risk everything to be free.

Length: 408 pages (Hardcover)
Expected Publication Date: July 3rd 2013 by Unhinged Books      
 
Why I'm Waiting:
 
Besides the stunning cover art, I was really intrigued by the plot it sounds like an utterly unique read.
 
Horde (Razorland, #3)
 
 
Summary:
 
The epic conclusion to the USA Today bestselling trilogy.

The horde is coming.

Salvation is surrounded, monsters at the gates, and this time, they're not going away. When Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan set out, the odds are against them. But the odds have been stacked against Deuce from the moment she was born. She might not be a Huntress anymore, but she doesn't run. With her knives in hand and her companions at her side, she will not falter, whether fighting for her life or Fade's love.

Ahead, the battle of a lifetime awaits. Freaks are everywhere, attacking settlements, setting up scouts, perimeters, and patrols. There hasn't been a war like this in centuries, and humans have forgotten how to stand and fight. Unless Deuce can lead them.

This time, however, more than the fate of a single enclave or outpost hangs in the balance. This time, Deuce carries the banner for the survival of all humanity.

Length: 432 pages (Hardcover)
Expected Publication Date: October 29th 2013 by Feiwel & Friends      
 
Why I'm Waiting:
 
I was a huge fan of the first novel in the trilogy and was just about to start the second one when I saw that the final book would be coming out in a couple months so I've decided to read the second book closer to the release date of the third book. I can't wait to see how everything turns out.
 
What are YOU waiting for this Wednesday?

  2. I have both of the Aguirre books that are already out but I haven't started them yet. I suppose I really need to before Horde hits the shelves.

  14. That is a really good plan - I read Enclave and enjoyed it, but never did read book 2 when it came out. I'll probably pick it up closer to Horde's release date, too!
