Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine.  It highlights books that are soon to be released that we are looking forward to reading.  It's a great way to introduce books and authors to other readers and to find out what other readers are looking forward to reading. 

This is what I found this week:

Discord's Apple
by Carrie Vaughn
Release Date: July 20, 2010

When Evie Walker goes home to spend time with her dying father, she discovers that his creaky old house in Hope's Fort, Colorado is not the only legacy she stands to inherit.  Hidden behind the old basement door is a secret and magical storeroom where wondrous treasures from myth and legend are kept safe until they are needed again. The magic of the storeroom prevents access to any who are not intended to use the items.

Evie must guard the storeroom against evil and malicious forces, protecting the past and the future even as the present unravels around them.  Old heroes and notorious villains alike will rise to fight on her side or to undermine her most desperate gambits.  At stake is the fate of the world, and the prevention of nothing less than the apocalypse.

Princess of Glass
by Jessica Day George
Release Date: May 25, 2010

Hoping to escape the troubles in her kingdom, Princess Poppy relunctantly agrees to take part in a royal exchange program, whereby young princes and princesses travel to each other's countries in the name of better political alliances - and potential marriages.  It's got the makins of a fairy tale - until a hapless servant named Eleanor is tricked by a vengeful fairy godmother into competing with Poppy for the eligible prince.  Ballgowns, cinders, and enchanted glass slippers fly in this romantic and action-packed happily-ever-after quest from an author with a flair for embroidering tales in her own delightful way.

So, what books are you looking forward to reading?  C'mon, please share!!!!
