Wishlist Wednesday #8

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper where we will post about a book that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added, that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our bookshelves.

This isn't due out until next week and already I'm coveting it! I first heard about in an interview with the author on a book blog, where she was talking about the three main characters, and all their different quirks and skills. This looks like what I can only describe as a kind of steampunk Charlie's Angels, and I love the sound of it...


The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress


An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns –and the heroines who use them all 


Set in turn of the century London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician's assistant. The three young women's lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man. 


It's up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder–and the crimes they believe may be connected to it–without calling too much attention to themselves. 

Set in the past but with a modern irreverent flare, this Steampunk whodunit introduces three unforgettable and very ladylike–well, relatively ladylike–heroines poised for more dangerous adventures.

  5. Interesting -- the steampunk genre seems to be everywhere right now, and this sounds like a good twist, focusing on powerful women. I'd love to hear what you think once you get a chance to read it!
