"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. Here is the description from Goodreads:
"With her trademark lyricism, Maggie Stiefvater turns to a new world, where a pair are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff--with more than just their lives at stake should they lose".
So...not much to go on. I do know from Maggie herself that it involves blood, beaches and kissing. This and the fact that Maggie wrote the book is enough for me to buy it. I do wish the synopsis was out already though, especially as the cover has just been revealed. I should tell you though that I have featured the UK cover in this post. I have not yet seen the US cover and it doesn't matter to me anyway as I'll probably end up buying both!
The Scorpio Races is released on 18th October, 2011 according to Goodreads and I assume this is the US version as Amazon UK have a release date of 6th October, 2011. I'm guessing these dates may change but at least we have an idea. I can't wait to read it!
