It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA from the top of my TBR list!
LIKE A RIVER GLORIOUS (The Gold Seer #2)
Releases 27 September 2016 from Greenwillow
After a harrowing journey across the country, Leah Westfall and her friends have finally arrived in California and are ready to make their fortunes in the Gold Rush. Lee has a special advantage over the other new arrivals in California—she has the ability to sense gold, a secret known only by her handsome best friend Jefferson and her murdering uncle Hiram.
Lee and her friends have the chance to be the most prosperous settlers in California, but Hiram hasn’t given up trying to control Lee and her power. Sabotage and kidnapping are the least of what he’ll do to make sure Lee is his own. His mine is the deepest and darkest in the territory, and there Lee learns the full extent of her magical gift, the worst of her uncle, and the true strength of her friendships. To save everyone, she vows to destroy her uncle and the empire he is building—even at the cost of her own freedom.

Rae Carson wrote one of my top favorite series, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, and though the first book of this trilogy didn't speak to me as strongly as that series did (perhaps because this one is more heavily historical?), it was still pretty awesome. I'm excited to read the sequel and see where it goes.
Thanks for checking in, guys! Sorry for missing Top Ten Tuesday again yesterday. I wrote part of a post, but... well, I think given the volume of the work I've got right now and the fact that I keep missing these posts, I'm going to take a break from Top Ten Tuesday until I graduate in July. Capische?
See you Saturday for our June humor post!
