Waiting On Wednesday: Waistcoats & Weaponry (Gail Carriger)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Waistcoats & Weaponry (Finishing School #3)
Title: Waistcoats & Weaponry (Finishing School, Book the Third)
Author: Gail Carriger
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Publisher: Little, Brown BYR

Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style--with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what--or who--they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train. Sophronia uncovers a plot that threatens to throw all of London into chaos and she must decide where her loyalties lie, once and for all.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItWith the release of the stunning cover last week I am excited to finally make this a WoW pick! For anyone who doesn't know, Ms. Carriger is one of my favorite authors, so the simple fact that she wrote it is reason enough for my wanting to get my hands on it. Don't get me started about how original and imaginative her paranormal steampunk world is, or how fun and snarky her characters are, or...

So what book are you waiting on?
