Waiting on Wednesday (1) + a blog button

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine http://breakingthespine.blogspot.com/-- and this is my first week posting for it!

2010 has been a year of much-anticipated and awesome book releases in the YA genre, and on December 28th, it's going out with a bang. (I hope!!) 

I'm waiting on....



(Synopsis from Catherine Fisher herself) ...In the dark Prison of Incarceron, the prisoners tell tales of a legendary man – Sapphique, the only inmate ever to escape. There are hundreds of tales of his exploits, but are any of them true? Did he even exist?
Attia and Keiro certainly think so, and when they hear that a crazy magician called Rix is using Sapphique’s lost Glove in his magical act, they’re determined to steal it. Meanwhile, out in the Realm, Finn is not finding being a Prince easy, and he’s tormented by doubts about his own identity.
I wanted to explore all our uncertainties about ourselves in this sequel to Incarceron. Who are we? Can we do the things others expect of us? And can we ever escape ourselves?
Expect the terrors of the Ice wing, a chain-gang, a duel, a masked ball, and the fearful anger of the Prison as it prepares to abandon its inmates to darkness and death forever.

I read Incarceron at the beginning of 2010, and it absolutely blew me away.  It's sometimes billed as a children's book, but believe me when I say people of all ages will love and be enthralled by this book.  Here's to hoping the sequel is just as incredible!  And here's the trailer for Sapphique from Amazon.

On an entirely unrelated note... I FINALLY MADE A BLOG BUTTON!! Yes, I realize people do it every day, but for me this is a notable accomplishment. So if you want to link to A Myriad of Books, then you can just scroll on down the page and grab my button. (Isn't Picnik amazing??  Best invention since the wheel, for us HTML-illiterates.  :)

This sounds really good, but I'd better track down a copy of Incarceron first.

Here is what I'm Waiting On this week. J x
