I Can't wait for:

Illusionarium by Heather Dixon
May 19th  2015

From the author of Entwined, a brilliantly conceived adventure through an alternate London. This sweeping, cinematic tale of an apprentice scientist desperate to save his family—and his world—is The Night Circus meets Pixar.

Through richly developed parallel worlds, vivid action, a healthy dose of humor, and gorgeous writing, Heather Dixon spins a story that is breathtaking and wholly original.

Okay, I don't like the description too much.. Not sure about Night Circus meets Pixar but I really loved the last book I read by this author. The cover is pretty, and I like the thought of apprentice scientist and it looks steam punkish. So I am excited for this book. (even if the person that wrote that synopsis should find another career.) 


  1. I haven't read any books by this author, but I think she's done fairy tale retellings, maybe? In any case, I love alt history. I didn't really love Night Circus -- in fact I stopped reading it, but I would love to try this!

  2. I have never read anything by this author, but I love the sound of this and the cover is really pretty! I'm excited to see what people think of this one, so I can make decision whether I should buy it or not. I hope you will love it when you read it! :)

  3. I haven't read anything by this author either! Not much of a synopsis, but I hope you enjoy reading it!

  4. The cover is DEFINITELY pretty. I hope you enjoy this one! :)

  5. I wasn't going to download this galley, but then I did. I hope it's good!
