Meme: "Waiting On" Wednesday #5 - Infinite Sky


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming novels that we're all eagerly anticipating.


It's time to tell the world what books we desperately want released right now! So here's mine guys... 


Series: Nope! Stand alone! 
Expected Publication: February 14th 2013 by Simon & Schuster UK

Iris Dancy’s free-spirited mum has left for Tunisia, her dad’s rarely sober and her brother’s determined to fight anyone with a pair of fists. 

When a family of travellers move into the overgrown paddock overnight, her dad looks set to finally lose it. Gypsies are parasites he says, but Iris is intrigued. As her dad plans to evict the travelling family, Iris makes friends with their teenage son. Trick Deran is a bare knuckle boxer who says he’s done with fighting, but is he telling the truth? 

When tools go missing from the shed, the travellers are the first suspects. Iris’s brother, Sam, warns her to stay away from Trick; he’s dangerous, but Iris can no longer blindly follow her brother’s advice. He’s got secrets of his own, and she’s not sure he can be trusted himself. 

Infinite Sky is a family story about betrayal and loyalty, and love.

Okay, so I'll be the first to tell you all that judging a book by its cover is completely natural for readers - that's the whole point of covers; to get you interested and wanting to read the synopsis and eventually, the whole book. I judge books by their covers all the time so it's a good thing the cover for Infinite Sky is pretty freaking awesome. :) 

Also, I absolutely adore contemporary books especially when they touch topics that I haven't read about yet. There's actually quite a lot of prejudice against travellers where I live and I'm really interested in the thoughts that go through people's heads that makes them justify not liking a type of person. Overall this novel sounds awesome, just the kind of gem I'd pick up from a pile of books. :) 

So, what is it for you this week? What are you anticipating? Please feel free to share the title and author of the novel you're most excited for or a link your own "Waiting On" Wednesdays in the comments below - I check them all out. xD

Finally, I'm sorry to say that this blog is an award and tag free zone simply because I don't have the time at the moment to pass awards/tags on. I really do appreciate the gesture though!
