“Waiting On” Wednesdays: Delilah Dirk and the King’s Shilling

Waiting on Wednesdays

Waiting on Wednesdays is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming book releases that we are excited for.


Delilah Dirk and the King’s Shilling (Delilah Dirk, #2) by Tony Cliff

Paperback, 272 pages
Publication Date: Mar. 8th, 2015
Publisher: First Second
ISBN: 9781626721555
Add it: To your TBR Pile or your “Want to Read” list on Goodreads.

Delilah Dirk and the Blades of England lands Delilah and Selim right in the middle of yet more crazy adventures. When Delilah is framed as a spy by an English army officer, her passion for revenge threatens to sever her friendship with Selim. Is she willing to lose the companionship of her only good friend in order to reclaim her reputation? Selim finally gets to see the England he has only imagined, but how will he feel when the combined strains of social conventions and Delilah’s thirst for revenge overwhelm his experience?

The first Delilah Dirk book was recommended to me by a friend and coworker. And I’m SO SO glad that she did. It’s a fantastic story about a pair of unlikely comrades and adventurers, Delilah and Selim. It was such a wonderful surprise, how much I enjoyed the story, and Cliff’s art is absolutely delightful, action-packed, and humorous. It started out as a web comic and was then turned into books. I’m really excited for this next adventure! If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend checking it out!

Teaser Tuesdays: Boxers & Saints

Teaser Tuesdays

It’s time for another “Teaser Tuesday!”

This feature (or meme)  is one I discovered on my friend Kim’s site Book Munchies, and is hosted by MizB of the Should Be Reading blog. For those of you who would like to play along at home (or more specifically on your homepage), here is how Teaser Tuesdays work.

– Grab (one of) your current read(s) and open it to a random page
– Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
– Remember to include the title & author, too, so that your followers and any Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their reading lists if your tease has captured their attention!

In addition to being king of the cosmos, Kronos became the Titan of time. He couldn’t pop around the time stream like Doctor Who or anything, but he could occasionally make time slow down or speed up. Whenever you’re in an incredibly boring lecture that seems to take forever, blame Kronos. Or when your weekend is way too short, that’s Kronos’s fault, too.

 

 

 

Percy Jackson mentioned Doctor Who!! Ahh!

Olivia’s hands shook so violently she had to sit on them to keep them from vibrating the entire row of chairs. Suddenly it all made sense. Amber’s parents had bought her a role in this production, but they hadn’t been able to guarantee that she’d win the internship. And what was the best way to do that? Eliminate the competition.
