Impatiently Waiting for Winter's Passage and The Clockwork Angel

I think this title most resembles how I feel when I see books out there that I'd love to have and yet still have to wait for it to be published. Yes, this is like the Waiting on Wednesday by Jill of Breaking the Spine started. I just felt it was more like being impatient than just waiting. Not trying to start a new meme, just making the name more appropriate to me. ;) This week...

Winter's Passage by Julie Kagawa (June 1, 2010)
From Julie Kagawa's site: WINTER'S PASSAGE,a free novella in the Iron Fey series will be available for download June 1st. It takes place between THE IRON KING and THE IRON DAUGHTER and follows Meghan and Ash on their perilous journey deep into the heart of Winter. 

Yes, you read correctly, this one will be free! How's that for the first listing of the book? Oh, and I will be having the review of Iron Daughter up shortly.

The Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, Book 1)

The Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, Book 1) by Cassandra Clare (Aug. 31, 2010)
From Goodreads: Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still. 

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos. 
Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own. 
Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: Jem, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

So, what books are you impatient to read? :) 


  1. Honestly, I want to read the Infernal Devices series because I just love that cover. I hope the story bears up!

  2. Heh... I have to admit, I feel the same way. :)

  3. Both of these do look really good! And I am going to have to remember about Winter's Passage. I am going to have to get to this series soon. :) Thanks!

  4. If Mortal Instruments is any indicator of the spectacular writing to come in Internal Devices I will def be devouring it!

    I am waiting for Winter Passage as well!!!
