Waiting on Wednesday (#9)

New+WoWWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly post created by Breaking the Spine , that features our most anticipated book to be released.

This week, my WoW pick is Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson, coming out on September 22nd, 2015!


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.

I cannot wait for this book. This author is capable of writing original and enthralling fantasy stories, so there’s a good chance it might be amazing. ^^

What are YOU waiting for?

  2. I’ve heard nothing but good things about The Girl of Fire & Thorns by her and even though I own the first two books I haven’t picked them up yet but holy moly, that cover is so gorgeous! and the story looks quite interesting as well ^^


  3. I loved the Girl of Fire and Thorns series, so I’m definitely up for another fantasy by Rae Carson! Also, THAT COVER!!! I added it to my to-read list before the cover was revealed (or even had a title), but I love that cover!

    My WOW
