Waiting on Wednesday: Steel by Carrie Vaughn

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking the Spine to see more entries!

This week, I am eagerly waiting on:

Steel by Carrie Vaughn
Publisher: HarperTEEN
Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Magical-Realism
Publication Date: 3.15.11
When Jill finds a rusty sword tip on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued—and little expects it will transport her through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Will a dark enchantment, salty kisses, and a duel with an evil pirate captain leave her stranded in the eighteenth century forever?

Drawing on piratical lore and historical fact, Carrie Vaughn creates a vivid world of swaying masts and swelling seas, where blood magic overrules the laws of nature, romance is in the air, and death can come at the single slip of a sword

Did you know that I have never read a book about pirates before? Crazy, right?! Although I have many swashbucklers sitting on my TBR list, I haven't ever gotten around to reading any of them. The only reason I can give, is that none of them have caught my attention enough to read before the many other books I wanted to read. Well, this one is different. This one has been calling to me every time I see it on someone else's blog. And now I am dying to read it. I cannot wait!!


  1. I love Vaughn's writing and am excited about this one too. Great pick!

  2. Great cover! Hope this one lives up to your expectations :)

  3. Me too! This looks SO good and I don't think I've ever read about pirates either.

    Here is what I'm wishing on this WLW

  4. I'm looking forward to this one too. :) And I haven't read a book about pirates either! Vikings and knights, yes, but no pirates...or cowboys for that matter. Here's hoping it's a good read!

    Juju: Good to know I'm not the only one!

    DJL: I've read about vikings and cowboys, but only a few books. The vikings were actually pretty interesting. As far as cowboys: I prefer to watch them in movies. :)

    Tribute books mama: Just visited!

  7. I am so excited to read this book! Never read a pirate book? you need to get Dust of 100 Dogs-it is one of my favorite books.

  13. Elie: I just looked it up, and it sounds like a winner! I need to make more of an effort to read outside the paranormal genre, and I just might start with pirates! :)
