Waiting on Wednesday (140)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (1/5/16):

Description on Goodreads:
Violin prodigy Etta Spencer had big plans for her future, but a tragedy has put her once-bright career at risk. Closely tied to her musical skill, however, is a mysterious power she doesn't even know she has. When her two talents collide during a stressful performance, Etta is drawn back hundreds of years through time.

Etta wakes, confused and terrified, in 1776, in the midst a fierce sea battle. Nicholas Carter, the handsome young prize master of a privateering ship, has been hired to retrieve Etta and deliver her unharmed to the Ironwoods, a powerful family in the Colonies--the very same one that orchestrated her jump back, and one Nicholas himself has ties to. But discovering she can time travel is nothing compared to the shock of discovering the true reason the Ironwoods have ensnared her in their web.

Another traveler has stolen an object of untold value from them, and, if Etta can find it, they will return her to her own time. Out of options, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the mysterious traveler. But as they draw closer to each other and the end of their search, the true nature of the object, and the dangerous game the Ironwoods are playing, comes to light -- threatening to separate her not only from Nicholas, but her path home... forever.
Why I’m Waiting:
First off, I love this author. I loved the first two Darkest Minds books. I still haven’t read book 3…I really want to/need to, but for some reason have been postponing it. I sort of have this habit of postponing the finishing of series. But, I’ll get there soon. This author knows how to write action, suspense, and plot twists. So, I know this one will be good too. I also adore the cover. And, to top it all off, it’s a book about a journey across centuries and continents! This sounds right up my alley, and I’m so excited for it to come out.
What are you waiting on this week?
