Waiting on Wednesday (23)

This week I'm waiting on...

The Wake of the Lorelei Lee: Being An Account of the Adventures of Jacky Faber, On Her Way to Botany Bay (Bloody Jack, Book 8) by L.A. Meyer

"Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has purchased the Lorelei Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic. Believing she has been absolved of past sins against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia.

To add insult to injury, the
Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry Jacky and more than 200 female convicts to populate New South Wales. Not one to give in to self pity, Jacky rallies her sisters to "better" their position--resulting in wild escapades, brushes with danger, and much hilarity. Will Jacky find herself a founding mother of New South Wales, Australia? Not if she has anything to do about it!" Summary Courtesy of Good Reads

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series and I can't wait to get caught up in Jacky's world once more :)

Release date: September 13, 2010


  1. Too bad September is such a long way off because I absolutely love this series. :)

  2. Oooh where did you find the cover for this? I hadn't seen it yet.

  3. I've heard such great things about this series. Gotta give it a try!

  4. This entire series looks so good! I need to start reading it!

  5. Do you remember that seriously boring adult book about people on a ship that I read for the staff book group? Well, it has kinda made me have a thing against books with ships in. I know. I'm nuts!

  6. This series is new to me, I guess I need to go check it out!


I love getting comments, so feel free to leave your thoughts :)
