Waiting on Wednesday (2)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I'm gonna do this a bit differently. I'm gonna spotlight books that have been released in the past year as well as books being released this year that I can't wait to read.

Mysteries abound, especially in Two Castles.

A handsome cat trainer, black-and-white cats, thieves on four legs and two, suspicious townsfolk, a greedy king, a giddy princess, a shape-shifting ogre, a brilliant dragon. Which is the villainous whited sepulcher?

Elodie journeys to the town of Two Castles to become a mansioner—an actress—but luck is against her. She is saved from starvation by the dragon Meenore, who sends her on a dangerous mission inside the ogre's castle. There, disguised as a kitchen maid at an ogre's feast, she finds herself cast in the role of a lifetime and pitted against a foe intent on murder.

Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine weaves an entrancing tale of a fearsome ogre, a dragon detective, and a remarkable heroine, who finds friendship where she least expects it, learns that there are many ways to mansion, and discovers that goodness and evil come in all shapes and sizes.

I LOVE Gail Carson Levine so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have known about this book since before it was a book! That's what happens when you follow Gail Carson Levine's awesome blog!
It sounds very interesting. I'm not usually very into mystery. I like little hints of it, but I like to have a good idea of what's going on throughout the book. I've been patiently awaiting this book for a while. I hope to get my hands on it as soon as possible!

And speaking of Gail Carson Levine, Here's a way to win FOUR of GCL's books!
