Waiting on Wednesday (53)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers discuss the books that they are most anxiously waiting for! (And this fabulous button was designed by my dear blogger friend Lindsay at The Violet Hour)

This week I'm waiting on...

Elemental by Antony John
© 21 November 2012 by Dial
A lost colony is reborn in this heart-pounding fantasy adventure set in the near future . . .

Sixteen-year-old Thomas has always been an outsider. The first child born without the power of an Element—earth, water, wind or fire—he has little to offer his tiny, remote Outer Banks colony. Or so the Guardians would have him believe.

In the wake of an unforeseen storm, desperate pirates kidnap the Guardians, intent on claiming the island as their own. Caught between the plague-ridden mainland and the advancing pirates, Thomas and his friends fight for survival in the battered remains of a mysterious abandoned settlement. But the secrets they unearth will turn Thomas’ world upside-down, and bring to light not only a treacherous past but also a future more dangerous than he can possibly imagine
(a) Antony John is a "local" St. Louis author and really fabulous.  He was very cool to hear speak at the MLA conference and cool to meet. (B) I ADORED Five Flavors of Dumb and enjoyed Thou Shalt Not Road Trip quite a bit and I'm excited to see where this new non-contemporary venture takes his writing. :)

Add it to your Goodreads shelf!

Also, I figured I would combine this post with W.W.W. Wednesdays...so here is some more info about my reading for this week! To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…Grab the logo...and post your link at Should Be Reading!

School has REALLY slowed down my reading! Between a FT job, a PT job, a middle school library practicum, and a reader's advisory class, I feel like I only get about 1/4 of the time I used to for my own reading.  It's really sad!

I love the sound of this one, novels with Pirates in them are usually very entertaining to read.
