Waiting on Wednesday {24}

Hey everyone and welcome to my weekly Waiting on Wednesday meme post! This is just a once a week deal where each Wednesday I post about one book I am looking forward to reading and then link it up to the host blog, 
Breaking the Spine, where I can be connected to over 200 other readers and bloggers who are looking for a new read! My friend Kim from kimberlyfayereads participates in this meme each week and it has always looked like a great time. Below you will find the book cover, synopsis, Goodreads link and my reasons for waiting on this read! Enjoy!

This week's WOW is... Illusionarium by Heather Dixon!

Title: Illusionarium
Author: Heather Dixon
Genre: Science Fiction/Steampunk 
Release Date: May 19, 2015

From the author of Entwined, a brilliantly conceived adventure through an alternate London. This sweeping, cinematic tale of an apprentice scientist desperate to save his family—and his world—is The Night Circus meets Pixar.

Through richly developed parallel worlds, vivid action, a healthy dose of humor, and gorgeous writing, Heather Dixon spins a story that is breathtaking and wholly original.

Why am I waiting?

I'll be completely honest and say that I know absolutely nothing about this read. So why am I excited? Well. This is a fantastic question. I don't have much in terms of an answer. I am desperately seeking something... new. Something that isn't so... blah. It seems like every time I get excited about a read these days, I pick it up and am ultimately disappointed by it in some manner. Something about this novel is speaking to me. I don't know if it's the cover, or just the fact that I am obsessed with steampunk, but I have a good feeling about this one folks. Plus, I have YET to hear a negative thing about Heather Dixon. So why not be excited about it? I can promise you guys that this one will be read ASAP! 

What are YOU waiting on this week?

Thanks for stopping by, Happy Reading! 



  1. The cover is pretty. I haven't read any Heather Dixon but this one sounds intriguing. :)

  2. The cover is beautiful and I always will pick up an alternative universe read. This one sounds really good.
