Can't Wait Wednesday (1)

Once upon a time, I used to blog and I used to do things that weren't just reviews. From 2009 to 2012, I did about over 100 Waiting on Wednesday posts which, since I usually did two books per post, meant over 200 books.

That's way too much and we're not going back there, because your Laina is old now and doesn't have that kind of energy anymore. However, I do miss doing things like this. So, instead of falling back into old habits that present!me can't keep up with, I'm taking the opportunity to start over with a clean slate.

This is a really long ramble to say, welcome to this first edition of Can't Wait Wednesday!

Look, I even made a thing. Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa of Wishful Endings. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was created by Jill Breaking the Spine.

And this week, I am excited about:

Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne

Release date: May 1st, 2018
Amazon / Book Depository / IndieBound

Summary (from goodreads): Seventeen-year-old Stella Ainsley wants just one thing: to go somewhere—anywhere—else. Her home is a floundering spaceship that offers few prospects, having been orbiting an ice-encased Earth for two hundred years. When a private ship hires her as a governess, Stella jumps at the chance. The captain of the Rochester, nineteen-year-old Hugo Fairfax, is notorious throughout the fleet for being a moody recluse and a drunk. But with Stella he’s kind.

But the Rochester harbors secrets: Stella is certain someone is trying to kill Hugo, and the more she discovers, the more questions she has about his role in a conspiracy threatening the fleet.

Why I'm excited about it: I don't think I've ever read a YA Jane Eyre retelling. I'm sure they're out there, but I've never encountered one, and I really enjoyed Jane Eyre when I read it. Plus, a science fiction twist is a really neat idea.

What are you guys excited about?

Peace and cookies,
Laina
