Waiting on Wednesday: A Tyranny of Petticoats edited by Jessica Spotswood {110}

Title: A Tyranny of Petticoats
Editor: Jessica Spotswood
Release date: March 8, 2016
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.

With stories by:
J. Anderson Coats
Andrea Cremer
Y. S. Lee
Katherine Longshore
Marie Lu
Kekla Magoon
Marissa Meyer
Saundra Mitchell
Beth Revis
Caroline Richmond

I am not generally a huge fan of anthologies, but who could resist this one? I'm obsessed with the title. I'm obsessed with the cover. I'm obsessed with the time period. I'm obsessed with a majority of the authors featured. So... Yeah, this must be mine. And soon.

 So what are you guys waiting on this week? :)
