Waiting on Wednesday (44)

Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Guys. Guys. Guys. GUYS!!!!

Pegasus by Robin McKinley - To be released November 2nd, 2010 (Just in time for you to get it for my birthday, December 13th)

A gorgeously-written fantasy about the friendship between a princess and her pegasus

Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pegasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.

But it’s different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close—so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo—and possibly to the future safety of their two nations.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: ROBIN MCKINLEY ROBIN MCKINLEY ROBIN MCKINLEY!!!!!! I love her I love her I love her I love her I love her. She is one of my favorite authors EVER!!

Okay, enough fangirling. Deep breath. Deep breath. Robin McKinley! No, I'm good, honest! Haha.

Next up is:

Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John - To be released November 11th, 2010

THE CHALLENGE: Piper has one month to get a paying gig for Dumb—the hottest new rock band in school.

THE DEAL: If she does it, she'll become manager of the band and get her share of the profits, which she desperately needs since her parents raided her college fund.

THE CATCH: Managing one egomaniacal pretty boy, one talentless piece of eye candy, one crush, one silent rocker, and one angry girl who is ready to beat her up. And doing it all when she's deaf. With growing self-confidence, an unexpected romance, and a new understanding of her family's decision to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, Piper just may discover her own inner rock star.

(Summary from goodreads.)

Why I want this: I love music books, like Audrey, Wait!, the cover of the book is gorgeous, I love her boots and sunglasses, and the deaf storytime sounds utterly awesome.

Okay! That's it for now!
Peace and cookies,
Laina
