Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a bookish meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we can't wait for.

I read The Vespertine, the first part of this series, last year and I absolutely loved it (read my review)! I am very much looking forward to read the sequel, which stars a different main character. The blurb sounds really interesting, I can't wait to read The Springsweet.

The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell (The Vespertine #2)
Expected publication April 17th by Harcourt Children's Books

Heartbroken over the tragic death of her fiancĂ©, seventeen-year-old Zora Stewart leaves Baltimore for the frontier town of West Glory, Oklahoma, to help her young widowed aunt keep her homestead going. There she discovers that she possesses the astonishing ability to sense water under the parched earth. When her aunt hires her out as a“springsweet” to advise other settlers where to dig their wells, Zora feels the burden of holding the key to something so essential to survival in this unforgiving land. Even more, she finds herself longing for love the way the prairie thirsts for water. Maybe, in the wildness of the territories, Zora can finally move beyond simply surviving and start living.

Thank you for reminding me that I need to read The Vespertine! I added it to my tbr last year after reading some great reviews, but then it somehow got pushed down my list.

Thanks for stopping by.  I really need to read The Vespertine soon.  I have it on my shelf, I just haven't had the chance to read it yet.  Great pick!
