Waiting on Wednesday featuring: TItans by Victoria Scott


This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Titans


     From Victoria Scott, author of FIRE & FLOOD, comes a thrilling story of impossible odds. 
     Ever since the Titans first appeared in her Detroit neighborhood, Astrid Sullivan’s world has revolved around the mechanical horses. She and her best friend have spent countless hours watching them and their jockeys practice on the track. It’s not just the thrill of the race. It’s the engineering of the horses and the way they’re programmed to seem so lifelike. The Titans are everything that fascinates Astrid, and nothing she’ll ever touch.
     She hates them a little, too. Her dad lost everything betting on the Titans. And the races are a reminder of the gap between the rich jockeys who can afford the expensive machines to ride, and the working class friends and neighbors of Astrid’s who wager on them.
     But when Astrid’s offered a chance to enter an early model Titan in this year’s derby, well, she decides to risk it all. Because for a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, it’s more than a chance at fame or money. Betting on herself is the only way she can see to hang on to everyone in the world she cares about.

Why I'm Waiting: Um let's be honest.... This says there will be such a thing as half machine, half horse. That by itself is amazing. Add that on to the author and I'm super excited to read this! Also, I've heard this is kind of like another book that many others have already read and loved, and I'm trying to figure out how there are mechanical horses out there and I haven't read them yet... I need to get on that ASAP because OMGGGG lol 

What are you waiting on this week?
Will you be waiting on this one with me?!
