Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It's where bloggers can spotlight upcoming books that they cannot wait to get their grabby hands on.

Wish. Love. Desire. Live.

Sixteen-year-old Noli Braddock's hoyden ways land her in an abusive reform school far from home. On mid-summer's eve she wishes to be anyplace but that dreadful school. A mysterious man from the Realm of Faerie rescues her and brings her to the Otherworld, only to reveal that she must be sacrificed, otherwise, the entire Otherworld civilization will perish.

I love steampunk.  I definitely think that it is my favorite genre out there in the book world.  I only wish that there was more of it out there, you know?  Luckily, steampunk seems to be a rapidly growing genre and that is making me happy.
I chose this book not only for its obvious steampunk quality. (Though, to be honest, it's a huge reason why I did.)  I was also drawn to the cover.  There's a blimp, a factory, and a girl with blue highlights and sparkles in her hair and goggles on her head.  This can only mean that this book must be hardcore steampunk.  (Score!)  And look at the gears around the title!  You simply cannot have a steampunk book without its cogs and gears.  I think it's nearly impossible. 
Lastly, the reason why I chose this book is because the synopsis sounds interesting enough.  She's going to be a sacrifice--say waahhh??  And some mysterious dude from the Realm of Faerie.  I'm thinking love interest, but that's not what's important here.  I want to know it he's a faerie himself!  I love faeries!
Okay, enough of me gushing about a book I haven't read yet.  Happy WoW!  What are you waiting on?
