Waiting On Wednesday (11), which is late because blogger is dumb

Waiting on Wednesday is brought to us by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and for the second and third time now, blogger has messed up my scheduling posting. What's up with that?

This week, my first pick is already out in the UK, but not in the US, so I'd assume not here in Canada either, and thus makes it eligible for a WoW pick.

Dragonfly by Julia Golding

Princess Taoshira of the Blue Crescent Islands is appalled when she is ordered to marry Prince Ramil of Gerfal in order to unite their lands. And he's not too pleased, either. They hate each other on sight. So, when Tashi and Ramil are kidnapped, they fear there's no escape - from their kidnappers or from each other. Can they put aside their differences long enough to survive ambush, unarmed combat, brainwashing, and imprisonment? And will the people they meet on their adventure help them or betray them to the enemy?

Sorry that the cover picture isn't great. It was the only one I could find. I really like it, though. The UK cover isn't nearly as nice in my opinion.

And my other pick is:

Time of the Witches by Anna Myers

An orphan named Drucilla has finally has a place to call home with the Putnam family in Salem. Although her adopted mother is strange—haunted by a troubled past—Dru feels drawn to her as the mother she never had. When a new reverend and his family move into town with their servant Tituba, life takes a strange turn as young girls begin to fall ill and accusations of witchcraft begin to swirl. Reluctant to turn her back on the Putnams or her peers and overwhelmed by the power of groupthink among the other girls in town, Dru becomes one of the accusers herself. But when her best friend Gabe is accused, she must find a way to end the hysteria, or risk losing him forever.

That's it for me for this week.
Peace and cookies,
