Waiting on Wednesday


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to showcase a book that has not yet been published, but are anxiously awaiting.

This week, I decided to feature Born of Illusion by Teri Brown: 

Born Of Illusion 

Release Date: June 11, 2013

Goodreads Summary: 

" Anna Van Housen is thirteen the first time she breaks her mother out of jail. By sixteen she’s street smart and savvy, assisting her mother, the renowned medium Marguerite Van Housen, in her stage show and séances, and easily navigating the underground world of magicians, mediums and mentalists in 1920’s New York City. Handcuffs and sleight of hand illusions have never been much of a challenge for Anna. The real trick is keeping her true gifts secret from her opportunistic mother, who will stop at nothing to gain her ambition of becoming the most famous medium who ever lived. But when a strange, serious young man moves into the flat downstairs, introducing her to a secret society that studies people with gifts like hers, he threatens to reveal the secrets Anna has fought so hard to keep, forcing her to face the truth about her past. Could the stories her mother has told her really be true? Could she really be the illegitimate daughter of the greatest magician of all?"

I am not usually a huge historical fiction reader, but this has magicians in it, and that whole world fascinates me! I think it will be awesome! And that cover is beautiful!

What are you waiting on this week?
