waiting on wednesday (66)

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 |
Today I’m participating in "Waiting On" Wednesday, a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight upcoming book releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Twitter is my social media network (network? that sounds so... 1999) of choice.  When I go through my feed each day I discover new books, read the news I should know about, and see pretty pictures of food.  Yes, I mostly follow book people and food bloggers.  What of it?!  Let me give you a concrete example of how this works.  I was on twitter and saw a link to Epic Reads' Spring 2014 cover reveals.  I scrolled down and saw a beautiful cover and interesting tag line.  It happened to be for  Joshua McCune's debut novel.  Then I went over to his website and read a little more, and now Talker 25 is at the top of my wishlist for 2014.  Added all officially to my Goodreads account and everything!  It will be released by Greenwillow (HarperCollins) on April 22, 2014.  The power of twitter, everyone!

talker 25 by joshua mccune book cover
It’s a high school prank gone horribly wrong—sneaking onto the rez to pose next to a sleeping dragon—and now senior Melissa Callahan has become an unsuspecting pawn in a war between Man and Monster, between family and friends and the dragons she has despised her whole life. Chilling, epic, and wholly original, this debut novel imagines a North America where dragons are kept on reservations, where strict blackout rules are obeyed no matter the cost, where the highly weaponized military operates in chilling secret, and where a gruesome television show called  Kissing Dragons unites the population. Joshua McCune’s debut novel offers action, adventure, fantasy, and a reimagining of popular dragon lore.

What books are you waiting on?

Sounds awesome and like it includes Native Americans. I will be keeping my eyes peeled for this review.

YES! I have it right now actually. (It's on Edelweiss. It just went up yesterday. Go request it!) I can't read it for a while alas because of Cybils. My 2014 galleys are starting to tug on me in a way that is hard to refuse…

I haven't read a dragon book yet and this one sounds promising ! I can not stop looking at all the cover love on that Epic Reads post.
