I Can't Wait for... The Light at the Bottom of the World by London Shah (Can't-Wait Wednesday/Waiting on Wednesday) #CWW #WOW @london_shah @DisneyBooks

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.

This upcoming release is unique in its setting and I've been in the mood for some different types of dystopians instead of the same old thing. We're talking creatures in the water and a submerged London? Who isn't intrigued at least a little by that? It's also a debut from Dysney/Hyperion and I'm always looking for new authors. It's my pick this week...

"A work of fathomless imagination" --Samantha Shannon, New York Times bestselling author of The Bone Season and The Priory of the Orange Tree

Hope had abandoned them to the wrath of all the waters.

In the last days of the twenty-first century, sea creatures swim through the ruins of London. Trapped in the abyss, humankind wavers between fear and hope--fear of what lurks in the depths around them, and hope that they might one day find a way back to the surface.

When sixteen-year-old submersible racer Leyla McQueen is chosen to participate in the prestigious annual marathon, she sees an opportunity to save her father, who has been arrested on false charges. The Prime Minister promises the champion whatever their heart desires. But the race takes an unexpected turn, forcing Leyla to make an impossible choice.

Now she must brave unfathomable waters and defy a corrupt government determined to keep its secrets, all the while dealing with a guarded, hotheaded companion she never asked for in the first place. If Leyla fails to discover the truths at the heart of her world, or falls prey to her own fears, she risks capture--or worse. And her father will be lost to her forever.
