Waiting on Wednesday #188 - The Marvels & Manners and Mutiny

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

Author: Brian Selznick 
Release Date: September 15, 2015 
Published by: Scholastic Press 

Two seemingly unrelated stories--one in words, the other in pictures--come together. The illustrated story begins in 1766 with Billy Marvel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck, and charts the adventures of his family of actors over five generations. The prose story opens in 1990 and follows Joseph, who has run away from school to estranged uncle's puzzling house in London, where he, along with the reader, must piece together many mysteries. (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds like a really cool combination of images and texts. And who doesn't love a good mystery!?!

Author: Gail Carriger
Release Date: November 3, 2015 
Published by: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers 

When a dastardly Pickleman plot comes to fruition, only Sophronia can save her friends, her school, and all of London...but at what cost? Our proper young heroine puts her training and skills to the test in this highly anticipated conclusion of the rousing, intriguing, and always polished Finishing School series!  (Summary from Goodreads)

I LOVE THIS SERIES!! I cannot wait to get to another one of these books. Seriously if you like adventure, girl power, and steampunk...these are for YOU!
