Waiting on Wednesday (48)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"The Vespertine"
by Saundra Mitchell
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's
Release Date: March 7, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:

It’s the summer of 1889, and Amelia van den Broek is new to Baltimore and eager to take in all the pleasures the city has to offer. But her gaiety is interrupted by disturbing, dreamlike visions she has only at sunset—visions that offer glimpses of the future. Soon, friends and strangers alike call on Amelia to hear her prophecies. However, a forbidden romance with Nathaniel, an artist, threatens the new life Amelia is building in Baltimore. This enigmatic young man is keeping secrets of his own—still, Amelia finds herself irrepressibly drawn to him.

When one of her darkest visions comes to pass, Amelia’s world is thrown into chaos. And those around her begin to wonder if she’s not the seer of dark portents, but the cause.

I've seen this one around a lot lately, and it looks amazing!! I love historical YA and I'm glad to see more of it around. Also, I love that it's set in the US, I love reading about US history!

What are you waiting for this week??
