Waiting on Wednesday

Soundless by Richelle Mead 
(Razorbill/November 10, 2015)
From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore. 
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom. 
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...

Doesn't this sound amazing??!  I'm especially excited to read something with some Chinese folklore background; I'm a huge fan of Greek and Roman mythology and have also read a few books with ties to other cultures' myths and legends but haven't read much lately with a Chinese mythology background!

Let me know in the comments what you're waiting on this Wednesday!  :)
