Wish List Wednesday 5

What?

Leviathan

by Scott Westerfeld
"It is the cusp of World War I, and all the European powers are arming up. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ fabricated animals as their weaponry. Their Leviathan is a whale airship, and the most masterful beast in the British fleet.

Aleksandar Ferdinand, prince of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battle-torn Stormwalker and a loyal crew of men.
Deryn Sharp is a commoner, a girl disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She's a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.
With the Great War brewing, Alek's and Deryn's paths cross in the most unexpected way...taking them both aboard the Leviathan on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure. One that will change both their lives forever."

Why?

This only came out yesterday, but I'm already dying without it. I've been waiting for Leviathan to come out for months! And for some reason, I don't have it when it's been available for 24 hours!
Even though I'm pretty sure I've never seen or read anything steampunk, I've been really into it lately. And it's become quite abundant too. Yay!
This book will definitely be good. I've liked every other book I've read by Scott Westerfeld (which is all but three of his YA books), so I doubt this one will be any different.
Well, I'm out of ways to say I really want this book, so I guess I'll stop now.

What's on your wish list?
