"Waiting On" Wednesday:The Friday Society
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by breaking the spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
by Adrienne Kress
Expected Publication: December 6th 2012 by Dial
From Goodreads: An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns--and the heroines who use them all
Set in Edwardian London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.
It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder--and the crimes they believe may be connected to it--without calling too much attention to themselves.
Told with Adrienne Kress's sharp wit and a great deal of irreverence, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike--well, relatively ladylike--heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.
Reasons why I want to read this book:
A)It's got three badass girls on the cover.
B)It's steampunkkk!!!! ;)
C)The blurb's goooood. ^.^
So to sum it all up,I have a good feeling about this ^^. Sounds a bit like The Three Musketeers,with a steampunk twist,and of course the badass heroines,and altogether this looks as if it's going to be one heck of a story! XD I don't know about you guys but I used to love watching Totally Spies on Disney Channel and therefore this book sounds like the perfect read for me!
So what's your WoW pick this week?Leave the link to your post in comments so that I can check it out and add it to my TBR pile!(Not that my TBR pile isn't already huge!-_-)
