Waiting On Wednesday (127) All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers showcase which books they are highly anticipating. This week I'm turning my spotlight on All The Birds In The Sky by Charlie Jane Anders.
January 26, 2016 from Tor Books
Childhood friends Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead didn't expect to see each other again, after parting ways under mysterious circumstances during high school. After all, the development of magical powers and the invention of a two-second time machine could hardly fail to alarm one's peers and families.
But now they're both adults, living in the hipster mecca San Francisco, and the planet is falling apart around them. Laurence is an engineering genius who's working with a group that aims to avert catastrophic breakdown through technological intervention into the changing global climate. Patricia is a graduate of Eltisley Maze, the hidden academy for the world's magically gifted, and works with a small band of other magicians to secretly repair the world's every-growing ailments. Little do they realize that something bigger than either of them, something begun years ago in their youth, is determined to bring them together--to either save the world, or plunge it into a new dark ages.
A deeply magical, darkly funny examination of life, love, and the apocalypse.
Why Am I Waiting?
First up, check out that cover! So Pretty. Can we just appreciate the uniqueness of it for a moment? Truthfully I only stumbled onto this one by accident. I was looking up a book by Tim Lebbon I wanted to read and this was in one of those read lists so I decided to check it out. Since the book doesn't release until early 2016 not much is known yet about All the Birds in the Sky but the premise sounds interesting to me and I want to read it so really that's enough :)
Since I'm curious, Have you heard of All The Birds In The Sky before?
If so, Do you plan on reading it?
