Waiting on Wednesday (#219): Invictus by Ryan Graudin


Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Invictus by Ryan Graudin
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: September 19, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Time flies when you're plundering history.

Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time-traveling Recorder from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in Rome in 95 AD, Far's birth defies the laws of nature. Exploring history himself is all he's ever wanted, and after failing his final time-traveling exam, Far takes a position commanding a ship with a crew of his friends as part of a black market operation to steal valuables from the past. 

But during a heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Armed with knowledge that will bring Far's very existence into question, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to discover a frightening truth: History is not as steady as it seems.

In this heart-stopping adventure, Ryan Graudin has created a fast-paced world that defies time and space.




Who has two thumbs and has read all of Graudin's books (and enjoyed them too)? This girl! I can't wait to read Invictus. It sounds AMAZING but let's be real, I didn't even need to read the synopsis. ;)

  2. I have Wolf by Wolf on my tbr which I'll hopefully read at some point this year but I hadn't heard of this one. I don't really read YA now...too many tropes for me but I hope you get your hands on it soon!

  4. Confession: I have several of Graudin's books on my shelf, and I loved her panel at YallFest a few years back, but I just can't stop grabbing contemporary romances (I know, I need to try harder!). I have only heard great things, and this one sounds great too.
