Waiting on Wednesday (9): Instruments + Devices

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It is a great way to draw attention to those books not yet released but well awaited. 

Here is my Seventh Edition of Waiting on Wednesday and it's a bit bigger!  I couldn't help myself.  There are just too many awesome books I am dying to get my hands on!

Make sure to check out some fabulous WOW posts below that you may have missed, my 'SIMON PULSE "Elizabeth" Edition' and my my 'Fabulously Large Edition of Dancers, Flappers + Iron' :-)  

I can't believe how long I have to wait for these! Isn't City of Fallen Angels cover gorgeous though?  I can't wait to see Clockwork Prince's cover- I'm a total steampunk lover.  I even happen to know a certain blogger *cough*me*cough* that's getting steam punk inspired jewelery for Christmas. 

The Mortal Instruments Book 4:  City of Fallen Angels
By: Cassandra Clare
Expected Release: April 05, 2011
Published By: Margaret K McElderry
|Series Website|

City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels  Synopsis Via Goodreads

By: Cassandra Clare 
Expected Release: August 30, 2011
Published by: Margaret K McElderry

The Infernal Devices is a series of prequels to The Mortal Instruments series, set in 19’th century London. The story concerns 16-year-old orphan Tessa Gray, whose quiet life is thrown into turmoil when her older brother Nathaniel suddenly vanishes, leaving her alone. Her search for him leads her into Victorian-era London’s dangerous supernatural underworld, where warlocks throw masked balls for half-demon Downworlders. When Tessa discovers that she herself is a Downworlder, she must come to trust her natural enemies, the demon-killing Shadowhunters, if she ever wants to learn to control her powers and find her brother. Torn between the beautiful Will, a Shadowhunter who isn’t what he seems, and the devoted Jem, whose own deadly secret is slowly destroying him, Tessa must draw on all her strength to save her brother and keep herself alive in this deadly new world   Synopsis Via Goodreads

  7. How to Knit a Heart Back Home
    By Rachael Herron
    Publication date: March 1, 2011

    Lucy Harrison sells books by day and volunteers with the Cypress Hollow fire department by night. Her life is just the way she likes it—full, even-keeled, and smooth—until bad-boy ex-cop Owen Bancroft comes back to town. Lucy has always been fearless, never scared about diving in to help others. When it comes to risking her heart, however, she realizes she's absolutely terrified.

    In a small town like Cypress Hollow, everyone knows your business—and there is nowhere to hide. Then Lucy and Owen are thrown together by the discovery of the lost work of local legend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Now Owen, adrift and struggling to redefine himself as a civilian without a badge, will have to learn how to open himself up to life's new possibilities . . . while Lucy decides just how much of herself she's willing to gamble on love.

  8. Oh my gosh I can't wait for City of Fallen Angels either! Ugh April is way too far away! I need Clary, Jace and Simon now! haha
    Great picks!

  9. LOL I agree, I think I'm gonna be broke the whole year of 2011 with all these great books.

  10. Hope you enjoy all of these when they come out :)
