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

Author: Alwyn Hamilton 
Release Date: March 8, 2016
Published by: Penguin

She's more gunpowder than girl--and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from.

Destined to wind up "wed or dead," Amani's counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he's the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she'd gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan's army, with a fugitive who's wanted for treason. And she'd never have predicted she'd fall in love with him...or that he'd help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is. (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds fantastic! Another Wild West-type story but this one has a completely different twist to it! Very cool! Plus, I won an ARC from Penguin on Goodreads! Woot! Woot! I just started it and it is non-stop ADVENTURE so far! I can't wait to see what happens next. 

What are you waiting on this week?
