Waiting on Wednesday (29)

Waiting on Wednesday/s are hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine in which you choose a book or books that you're excited and waiting for.
This week's Waiting on Wednesday book is:

Title: Love in the Time of Global Warming
Author: Francesca Lia Block
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Publication date: August 27th 2013
Pre-order the book: Amazon / Book Depository


Seventeen-year-old Penelope (Pen) has lost everything—her home, her parents, and her ten-year-old brother. Like a female Odysseus in search of home, she navigates a dark world full of strange creatures, gathers companions and loses them, finds love and loses it, and faces her mortal enemy.

In her signature style, Francesca Lia Block has created a world that is beautiful in its destruction and as frightening as it is lovely. At the helm is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.

Why I'm excited for this book:
I've always been a huge fan of Francesca Lia Block because there's always something so magical about her writing. The way she words things and how she creates such unique and tantalizing worlds. Her books are dark, compelling and just enthralling. I always anticipate her next books, and this one is not an exemption. Not only is the cover beautiful but the summary has Francesca Lia Block's trademark intrigue and uniqueness.

What are you waiting for this week? :) Leave us a comment and we'll check yours out!
