Waiting on Wednesday #6

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

One of my favorite Christian Historical Romance authors and one of my favorite authors all around is Deeanne Gist. I pre-order all of her books and have loved every one of them! Bride in the Bargain is my favorite. I also love the scene in Love on the Line when Luke is getting his splinters removed by Georgie. It is a moment mixed between wanting to lol and sigh. :) She has a new one coming out in April and I am so excited about it! She just released a short prequel called Tempest in the White City (if you're interested, just click on the title and it will take you to Amazon). It's 46 pages for $.99. 

I also love, YA author, Kiersten White! She has two books being published this year, Mind Games was already published in February (I have it, but haven't had a chance to read it yet) and The Chaos of Stars is being published in September.

Goodreads summary:
A transporting historical novel about a promising young inventor, his struggle with loss, and the attractive teacher who changes his life, all set against the razzle-dazzle of the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair.

Gambling everything, including the family farm, Cullen McNamara travels to the 1893 Chicago World's Fair with his most recent invention. But the noise in the Fair’s Machinery Palace makes it impossible to communicate with potential buyers. In an act of desperation, he hires Della Wentworth, a teacher of the deaf, to tutor him in the art of lip-reading.

The young teacher is reluctant to participate, and Cullen has trouble keeping his mind on his lessons while intently watching her lips. Like the newly invented Ferris Wheel, he is caught in a whirl between his girl back home, his dreams as an inventor, and his unexpected attraction to his new tutor. Can he keep his feet on the ground, or will he be carried away?

Goodreads summary:
Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.

  3. Both of these sound pretty interesting, particularly the first. I'm not a big romance reader these days, but I've always been fascinated by the White City.

    1. It does sound great! I just really love her voice in her books. So much fun and I love all the mythology stuff. Did you know that Egyptian mythology is basically the same as the Greek's? They just changed the names of the gods and added a few things. Look at all the things you learn when you homeschool your kids. :)
