Waiting on Wednesday (#220): Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore


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:


Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore
Publisher: Kathy Dawson Books
Publication Date: September 19, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia—an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions.

Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash—a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family's island mansion called Tu Reviens.

Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." With nothing but a trunkful of umbrella parts to her name, Jane ventures out to the Thrash estate. Then her story takes a turn, or rather, five turns. What Jane doesn't know is that Tu Reviens will offer her choices that can ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But at Tu Reviens, every choice comes with a reward, or a price.



I cannot WAAAAAIT! I wish I had this book in my hands now! It's so sad that a cover has not been revealed yet. But no matter, because I'll be excited for whatever Cashore writes, cover or no cover. Plus I'm tired of putting off this novel as a WoW choice (I pick books chronologically in terms of publication date).

Did you know that Fire, Cashore's second novel, is my all-time favorite book ever? And the series overall is my favorite? *insert crazy fangirling here*

      Thank you!

  17. Okay, don't hate me, but I'm one of the FEW people who didn't love Graceling. I liked it, but that's all, so I'm not super excited about this book, but it sounds really good.
    I hope you love it!!!
