Waiting on Wednesday is, of course, brought to us by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Did you guess last week's theme? It was girlslyingdownonthegroundorotherflatsurfacewiththeirarmsovertheirhead. *inhales* Yeah.
The Hunt of the Unicorn by C.C. Humphreys - To be released March 8th, 2011
Elayne thinks the old family story that one of her ancestors stepped through a tapestry into a world of mythical beasts makes a great fireside tale. But she lives in the real world. In New York City. And she's outgrown that kind of fantasy.
Until she finds herself in front of a unicorn tapestry at the Cloisters museum and sees her initials woven into the fabric. And hears a unicorn calling to her. And slips and falls—into that other world.
Suddenly the line between fantasy and reality isn't so clear. But the danger is real enough. Almost before she can think, Elayne is attacked by a ferocious beast, rescued by a unicorn, and taken prisoner by a tyrant king. Each of them seems to have an idea about her—that she's a hero, a villain, dinner!
But Elayne has a few ideas of her own. She wants to overthrow the king; she wants to tame the unicorn. She wants to go home! And she's willing to become both hero and villain to do it.
(Summary from goodreads.)
Why I want this: UNICORNS. (Even though I am a little more Team Zombie than Team Unicorn.)
On the Volcano by James Nelson - To be released March 31st, 2011
Katie and her widowed father have always lived on their own, high up in a place few intruders would dare approach: alongside the crater of a collapsed volcano. They've built a simple but happy life for themselves, far from the frontier perils of the world below - until a long-promised birthday trip to the rough-and-tumble town of Badwater takes an ugly turn and brings the outside world much too close. With it comes grave danger and unimaginable loss, but also something Katie had barely dreamed possible for herself: a heart-pounding but tender romance, the kind to build a life on.
(Summary from amazon because I didn't love the goodreads one.)
Why I want this: VOLCANO. And, hello, romance!! Plus the cover is gorgeous. :)
Er... not really a theme here, but unicorns and volcanos are an interesting mixture, aren't they?
