Waiting on Wednesday: The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm quite excited about The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White that set for a September 10 release. Recently I've been on a stars & space covers reading trend, so this one seems fitting. While it has nothing to do with either, it still looks enrapturing. I find there aren't enough books that explore the "other" groups in the supernatural/mystical world. Check out Isadora's story below!


The Chaos of Stars cover Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.


From Goodreads

I must admit that I am fairly intrigued, not only by Isadora but also by this brother who has already left the family. It makes me wonder if he too is mortal or if he's just past the age of maturity. Honestly, I have no idea what this book had in store for the characters, but I am eager to find out! What are you waiting on this week?

I actually had the chance to read this (review to come this week!) and can say that the stars do play a role in this story. Love the cover!
