Waiting On Wednesday #111: MECHANICA by Betsy Cornwell (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!!
The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 

What I'm currently waiting for... 

by Betsy Cornwell
Expected release date: August 4th, 2015
Published by: Clarion Books
Genre: Young Adult Steampunk Fantasy
Format: Hardcover, eBook


Nicolette’s awful stepsisters call her “Mechanica” to demean her, but the nickname fits: she learned to be an inventor at her mother’s knee. Her mom is gone now, though, and the Steps have pushed her into a life of dreary servitude. 

When she discovers a secret workshop in the cellar on her sixteenth birthday 
— and befriends Jules, a tiny magical metal horse — 
Nicolette starts to imagine a new life for herself. 
And the timing may be perfect: There’s a technological exposition and a royal ball on the horizon. 

Determined to invent her own happily-ever-after, Mechanica seeks to wow the prince and eager entrepreneurs alike.

Why I'm waiting for MECHANICA...
