Waiting on Wednesday: TARNISH by Katherine Longshore

Still having fun with BREAKING THE SPINE’s fabulous midweek meme.Here’s this week’s pick…

The gilded cover is SO pretty--sorry this pick doesn't do it justice.

Why?... Katherine has this amazing talent for making teens in historical settings feel achingly real and relatable. FYI, you don't need to read her debut novel, GILT, to enjoy TARNISH. They are both fantastic as standalones. But, if you're an anglophile like me (drat you Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, W. Somerset Maugham, Noel Streatfield), you'l want to read them both. Then you'll want to go to England and visit some castles. In honesty, I'm not waiting for this book because I've already read the arc (read my review HERE) but I am excited that others will be able to read it soon!
 

Preorder at AMAZON.

What are you waiting on this week?

Thanks, Jessica. I'm getting more into historical YA myself these days. Have you read Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers? Set in medieval France and SOOO good. I also recently enjoyed the slightly paranormal WWI-America-set IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS by Cat Patrick.

This looks okay, but I'd still like to read the first on first. LOL. Great pick, girly!
