Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we showcase upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

Something Strange and Deadly 
by Susan Dennard
Release date: July 24, 2012

Goodreads Synopsis: 

The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

Why I want to Read it:

Zombies in Victorian Philadelphia?! Give me one reason you wouldn't want to read it and I'll give you a cookie. Okay, not really, but you get what I'm trying to say. It's ZOMBIES! IN VICTORIAN PHILADELPHIA! Awesome! Also, the whole "maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor" doesn't hurt anything either ;) 

So what are y'all waiting on this fine Wednesday? Be sure to let me know in the comments below!

P.S. I promise that review of Ordinary Magic is coming! I've just completely lost track of time (it's Wednesday?!)!! Look out for it either tomorrow or Friday :) 

All the best ♥
