Waiting on Wednesday: A Tyranny of Petticoats by Multiple Authors

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  My choice this week is a book full of stories by some of my favorite authors:  Beth Revis, Marie Lu, Andrea Cremer, Marissa Meyer, and Elizabeth Wein to name a few.  At first when I saw this, I was afraid it might be a steampunk book, but that is not all it is, although there may be some of those stories, not sure.  When I heard it was going to have both historical fiction and fantasy, I was immediately back on board and excited!  Here is the blurb from Goodreads:


From an impressive sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology of historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring heroines.Criss-cross America — on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains — from pirate ships off the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s Chicago. Join fifteen of today’s most talented writers of young adult literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They're making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they all have a story to tell.


So, what do you think? Does it not sound like a bunch of awesome stories about awesome strong girls?  I just can't wait!
