Waiting on Wednesday (158)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart
Release date: September 1, 2015

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Drunken Botanist comes an enthralling novel based on the forgotten true story of one of the nation’s first female deputy sheriffs.
Constance Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years ago. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family — and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared. 
I like that this is based on a true story. She kind of reminds me of a real life Phryne Fisher from Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (Australian TV series based on the Kerry Greenwood books). I like historical mysteries and strong heroines so this book sounds like a perfect fit for me.

Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Release date: December 1, 2015

A year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase made the now infamous Avon Broadcast, calling on the galaxy to witness for their planet, and protect them from destruction. Some say Flynn's a madman, others whisper about conspiracies. Nobody knows the truth. A year before that, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux were rescued from a terrible shipwreck-now, they live a public life in front of the cameras, and a secret life away from the world's gaze.
Now, in the center of the universe on the planet of Corinth, all four are about to collide with two new players, who will bring the fight against LaRoux Industries to a head. Gideon Marchant is an eighteen-year-old computer hacker known in Corinth's underworld as The Knave of Hearts. He'll climb, abseil and worm his way past the best security measures to pull off onsite hacks that others don't dare touch.
Sofia Quinn has a killer smile, and by the time you're done noticing it, she's got you offering up your wallet, your car, and anything else she desires. She holds LaRoux Industries responsible for the mysterious death of her father and is out for revenge at any cost.
When a LaRoux Industries security breach interrupts Gideon and Sofia's separate attempts to infiltrate their headquarters, they're forced to work together to escape. Each of them has their own reason for wanting to take down LaRoux Industries, and neither trusts the other. But working together might be the best chance they have to expose the secrets LRI is so desperate to hide.
I love this series! I was excited to see the cover reveal for this one. I think Sophia and Gideon sound like interesting characters that will add something different to the series. 


  1. The second book you have is pretty popular this week!

  2. Awesome picks! I am especially intrigued by the first book. That one is new to the sound of it and the cover is so much fun! Thanks for sharing these.

  3. Girl Waits With A Gun sounds like a good one. Thanks for mentioning it and I'm going to put it on my list. I can see why it made you think of Phryne Fisher. The cover certainly harks back to that time period.

  4. I don’t really know much about the first book but I can’t wait for THEIR FRACTURED LIGHT! I loved THESE BROKEN STARS but still need to read THIS SHATTERED WORLD. Great WoW picks! :D

  5. I've seen Their Fractured Light around a lot today! I didn't even know the cover had been revealed. It's SO pretty! And I love this series SO much. I can't wait to read it! Great picks, Christina!!

  6. I absolutely love both of these covers. Love the mystery of the first and that it's a true story! Fractured Light, well, that's a give---this series is just fantastic so far!!

  7. Great pick! I really need to hurry up and read These Broken Stars. Everyone seems to love that series.
