Waiting on Wednesday: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where you talk about whatever book you are IMPATIENTLY WAITING for!

This week I am waiting for...

Passenger (Passenger, #1)
Violin prodigy Etta Spencer had big plans for her future, but a tragedy has put her once-bright career at risk. Closely tied to her musical skill, however, is a mysterious power she doesn't even know she has. When her two talents collide during a stressful performance, Etta is drawn back hundreds of years through time.

Etta wakes, confused and terrified, in 1776, in the midst a fierce sea battle. Nicholas Carter, the handsome young prize master of a privateering ship, has been hired to retrieve Etta and deliver her unharmed to the Ironwoods, a powerful family in the Colonies--the very same one that orchestrated her jump back, and one Nicholas himself has ties to. But discovering she can time travel is nothing compared to the shock of discovering the true reason the Ironwoods have ensnared her in their web.

Another traveler has stolen an object of untold value from them, and, if Etta can find it, they will return her to her own time. Out of options, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the mysterious traveler. But as they draw closer to each other and the end of their search, the true nature of the object, and the dangerous game the Ironwoods are playing, comes to light -- threatening to separate her not only from Nicholas, but her path home... forever.
Release Date: January 5th 2016

Why am I waiting?
So, I LOVE the Darkest Minds series, so this is a definite need for me! Add in the synopsis and that beautiful cover and I NEED this!
What book are you waiting for this week?


  1. Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of Alexander Bracken, but I keep seeing a lot of early hype for this book. I hope you get to enjoy it!

    My WOW:

  2. I have not read anything by Alexandra Bracken. I had to check on GR to know more about it. This book has a similar cover to The Girl From Everywhere (the water and the ship)

  3. I WANT to be excited about this but I'm really not. I might borrow it from the library when it comes out rather than buy it!
