Waiting on Wednesday - The Unnaturalists

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Unnaturalists
by Tiffany Trent
Published by Simon and Schuster
Publication Date:  August 14, 2012

In an alternate London where magical creatures are preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger.

Vespa Nyx wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum, but as she gets older, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband is looming large. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s—and with the Unnaturals.

As the danger grows, Vespa and Syrus find themselves in a tightening web of deception and intrigue. At stake may be the fate of New London—and the world.
(from Goodreads)

The Unnaturalists isn't the typical book that I would be drawn to.  As a reader of mainly contemporary YA, I don't immediately want to read books outside of that genre. It takes a bit of coaxing and more often than not, I'm so happy that I am introduced to new genres and authors. 

I found out about this book today from my friend, Traci, who I was inviting to join the book club I am in. Immediately she tells me to check out Tiffany Trent's website because she has a new book coming out this year that may be something we would want to read when it is released.  I haven't read any steampunk books, but I think I'm ready to discover what they are all about. 

If you want to dive into some steampunk or if you are already a fan, then you should definitely check out Tiffany's blog to enter her Lovely Steampunk Giveaway
Thanks Traci for recommending this book!
