I Can't Wait for... Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday)

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.

I'm a huge Jane Eyre fan. I've read the book multiple times and have not only watched every theatrical rendition, I actually own a couple of them as well. I also love twists on classic stories, and this one is a scifi twist set in space, which sounds like something I would love. It's already been released in the US and has a June release elsewhere. I like the non-US cover the best (the second cover). What do you think?

Brightly Burning

YA SciFi
Hardcover, Paperback & ebook, 400 Pages

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.
