Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by “Breaking the Spine” where bloggers can inform all their anticipated readers about upcoming books they’re excited about!
This book I’m waiting for this Wednesday is a mix of Young Adult and history rebellion! I am incredibly excited for this Fall release from the group over at Harlequin publishing.
“Pawn” by Aimee Carter
(The Blackcoat Rebellion #1)
Expected Publication: November 26th, 2013
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.
If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked—surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister’s niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.
There’s only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed…and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that’s not her own, she must decide which path to choose—and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she’s only beginning to understand.
For a history major and buff like myself, what isn’t there to love about this synopsis?! A historical upheveal of a new class system, in a new world not like our own; a transformation is undertaken by our heroine, and a rebellion must be stopped – but will Kitty do that? Its all very mysterious and yet at the same time thrilling and has a Elizabethean Era feel. It is all very cloak and dagger! A couple reasons why I am delighted to be patiently (but eagerly nonetheless) waiting for this book is because of the “historical” feel to it. It is not taking place in a true historical era but the class system, rebellion plot and overall setting makes it seem like it could have actually happened. SECONDLY and this is just a leap of blind wishing on my behalf, because it is being published by Harlequin Teen I am hoping, nay pipe dreaming that there will be a devilish rebel, or handsome aristocrat that woes our dear Kitty. Wouldn’t that just put a perfect cherry ontop of this fantastic Fall release!
So what do you think of this weeks pick? What are you waiting for today!
