WoW - December 8th

So I haven't posted in a while. . . .  . But that's okay!  This is only my second WoW (click here to go to Breaking the Spine to learn more), so I've still got lots of books that I really want to read that I can post about!
Today it's going to be:  Steel - Carrie Vaughn

"When Jill finds a rusty sword tip on a Caribbean beach, she is instantly intrigued—and little expects it will transport her through time to the deck of a pirate ship. Will a dark enchantment, salty kisses, and a duel with an evil pirate captain leave her stranded in the eighteenth century forever?"

There's mainly one reason I want to read Steel is because of the idea.  It's not that I don't like the cover; I do, but I did fencing once, and it sounds like some sort of dark romantic book meets Pirates of the Carribean.  Since I enjoy both of these things, I think I'll love this book.  I like the idea of a girl from the present (or whenever she's from, I just know she goes back in time) going all the way back to the 1700s.  It seems to have a mystery aspect to it, because of the way she might be stranded there.  It reminds of Pirates of the Carribean mainly because it's set in the Carribean, and there's a duel with the evil captain.  I love the way that the summary pulls you in just from a few sentences, making you want more.  It seems like some sort of sword dueling rather than gun, or any other modern weapon, and although I didn't like fencing as much as I thought I would, I love sword fights the most.

Also. . . . . . . . .
I'm currently reading a book called I Am Number Four, which is absolutely amazing.  Here's the link to Goodreads, where there's the book summary, reviews, and all that sort of stuff.    Also, here's a trailer for the movie that's coming out. 


  1. The cover for this one is just beautiful! Love the font and the way the light is done. And time travel with pirates? How can you go wrong? :D
