Waiting on Wednesday (54)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you can spotlight an upcoming release you're eagerly anticipating!

This week I'm waiting on:

Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
Releases on: September 22, 2015 PRE-ORDER or ADD TO GOODREADS!

From Goodreads: The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times
bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush-era America.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home-- until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes. 

Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces-- as only Rae Carson can-- a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author's note on historical research.

Why I'm Waiting: 

2. Lee disguises herself as a boy.
3. GOLD RUSH. I just read a book about the Gold Rush that was EPIC and I'm hoping this one will be just as EPIC.
4. I've heard Rae Carson is a BAMF author, and I still need to read aGoFaT but color me excited. My hopes are sky high.

What do you think about Walk on Earth a Stranger? Do you think it sounds as Epic as I think it does or nah? Have you read any Rae Carson books? Let's discuss!
