I've done a Tuesday meme twice, and both times I've done it on Wednesday.
So I figure I've got to start a Wednesday Meme to help me do Tuesday's on Tuesday. And I've picked Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Basically, I pick a book I'm excited about. Ya'll already know that I'm mega excited about "Odd and the Frost Giants" from my I'm So Excited!!!! post. I recently discovered that it's already out in the states. HURRY UP AND COME OUT HERE!!!!
Another book I am super excited about, though, is "the Cloud Pavillion" by Laura Joh Rowland.
For those of you that don't know, she writes mysteries that take place in Japan, and they are awesome! Of course I would say that, though, because they take place in Japan. You'll just have to check it out for yourself.
The Cloud Pavillion
by Laura Joh Rowland

from the Macmillan website:
Japan, 1701. A woman is brutally attacked within a bamboo prison as clouds swirl around her head. Meanwhile, at Edo Castle, samurai detective turned chamberlain Sano Ichiro is suspicious of his old rival, Yanagisawa, who has been oddly cooperative since returning from exile.
But just as Yanagisawa’s true motives begin to emerge, Sano’s estranged uncle comes to him for help: His daughter has disappeared, and he begs Sano and his wife—who once suffered through the kidnapping of their own son—to find her before it is too late.
