Can't Wait / Waiting on Wednesday | Sixth Edition


Hello, readers and followers! Happy Wednesday - and welcome. As we do every Tuesday with Top Ten Tuesday, this day, we're joining the "Waiting On" fun with Can't Wait Wednesday. 

Back to today's bookish stuff. I'm linking up with my Bookstagram (check out our July challenge!) partner in crime, Tressa of Wishful Endings


Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)
______________________________

For today's meme, we turn the spotlight on a novel that doesn't release until 2018. So, why did I chose to feature this one, you ask? Well, the cover just released today (can we take a moment to appreciate its epic beauty?), which makes it seem the ideal time to help further its hype. With lots of virtual confetti, this week's Can't Wait/Waiting on Wednesday (Finding Wonderland style) presents, Olivia Twist.

A reimagining of a classic Dickens' novel, this one arrives from YA author Lorie Landgon (Gilt Hollow). 

OLVIA TWIST 
Publisher: Blink (HarperCollins)
Genre: Historical Young Adult Fiction
Publication Date: March 2018

​Olivia Brownlow is no damsel in distress. Born in a workhouse and raised as a boy among thieving London street gangs, she is as tough and cunning as they come. When she is taken in by her uncle after a caper gone wrong, her life goes from fighting and stealing on the streets to lavish dinners and soirees as a debutante in high society. But she can’t seem to escape her past … or forget the teeming slums where children just like her still scrabble to survive.

Jack MacCarron rose from his place in London’s East End to become the adopted “nephew” of a society matron. Little does society know that MacCarron is a false name for a boy once known among London gangs as the Artful Dodger, and that he and his “aunt” are robbing them blind every chance they get. When Jack encounters Olivia Brownlow in places he least expects, his curiosity is piqued. Why is a society girl helping a bunch of homeless orphan thieves? Even more intriguing, why does she remind him so much of someone he once knew? Jack finds himself wondering if going legit and risking it all might be worth it for love.

Olivia Twist is an innovative reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic tale Oliver Twist, in which Olivia was forced to live as a boy for her own safety until she was rescued from the streets. Now eighteen, Olivia finds herself at a crossroads: revealed secrets threaten to destroy the “proper” life she has built for her herself, while newfound feelings for an arrogant young man she shouldn’t like could derail her carefully laid plans for the future- Goodreads

    1. It IS a long wait. I thought of that while putting this one together, but the pretty cover was just too tempting to skip a Waiting on Wednesday feature. :)
