Waiting on Wednesday: The Floating Islands

I don't usually participate in memes, but I like this one just for the fact that I find more books to add to my TBR list. And I don't care if I'm coming up on 700 books on my list, I can always use more. So, here's one that I'm waiting on:

The Floating Islands by Rachel Neumeier
When Trei loses his family in a tragic disaster, he must search out distant relatives in a new land. The Floating Islands are unlike anything Trei has ever seen: stunning, majestic, and graced with kajurai, men who soar the skies with wings.Trei is instantly sky-mad, and desperate to be a kajurai himself. The only one who fully understands his passion is Araene, his newfound cousin. Prickly, sarcastic, and gifted, Araene has a secret of her own . . . a dream a girl cannot attain.Trei and Araene quickly become conspirators as they pursue their individual paths. But neither suspects that their lives will be deeply entwined, and that the fate of the Floating Islands will lie in their hands.

  1. Wow what an unusual cover and equally unusual story...great pick!

  2. Love the cover of that one, very cool! I love WoW too because I almost always find new books to add to my wishlist :D

  3. Cool book. I haven't heard of it. Always too many books and too little time - I don't update my TBR list much but I'm sure I'd have hundreds on it too.

  4. Wow, this sounds awesome! I'd never heard of it but now I think I'll have to check it out. Great pick!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! I really appreciate it. =)
