waiting on wednesday (10)

I’m participating today in "Waiting On" Wednesday. It is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and its purpose is to spotlight eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

When I read Fever Crumb late last year, I was bowled over by its brilliance. It wasn’t anything like I expected (and there lay most of its genius), and still it was clever, deep and set up a world that I wanted to know more about. Imagine my happiness when I learned that Philip Reeve had already written the sequel – A Web of Air!

Alas, for now it’s only available in the UK paperback version, and I am SUCH a snob about having matching books (until i’m not. but, you know.). Hold on a minute! Fever Crumb: Web of Air releases in a shiny US hardback version from Scholastic on October 1, 2011. Looks spiffy, no?

The second, thrilling adventure in the Fever Crumb trilogy from the brilliant and award-winning Philip Reeve.

Two years ago, Fever Crumb escaped the war-torn city of London in a traveling theater. Now, she arrives in the extraordinary city of Mayda, where buildings ascend the cliffs on funicular rails, and a mysterious recluse is building a machine that can fly. Fever is the engineer he needs - but ruthless enemies will kill to possess their secrets.

What books are you waiting on?

Great pick! I haven't read Fever Crumb yet, so I'll have to get on that!

This book has a special place in my heart! I read it last year and LOVED it. SO MUCH. I got my grandmother to send me the UK version in hardcover.. do they not make it anymore? Anyway, the US version looks fantastic though so you should definitely wait to pick it up! I know I'm getting the US version as well!
