My pick of the week is...
The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Series: The Girl From Everywhere #1
Publication Date: February 16, 2016
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Heidi Heilig’s debut teen fantasy sweeps from modern-day New York City to nineteenth-century Hawaii to places of myth and legend. Sixteen-year-old Nix has sailed across the globe and through centuries aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. But when he gambles with her very existence, it all may be about to end. The Girl from Everywhere, the first of two books, will dazzle readers of Sabaa Tahir, Rae Carson, and Rachel Hartman.

Nix’s life began in Honolulu in 1868. Since then she has traveled to mythic Scandinavia, a land from the tales of One Thousand and One Nights, modern-day New York City, and many more places both real and imagined. As long as he has a map, Nix’s father can sail his ship, The Temptation, to any place, any time. But now he’s uncovered the one map he’s always sought—1868 Honolulu, before Nix’s mother died in childbirth. Nix’s life—her entire existence—is at stake. No one knows what will happen if her father changes the past. It could erase Nix’s future, her dreams, her adventures . . . her connection with the charming Persian thief, Kash, who’s been part of their crew for two years. If Nix helps her father reunite with the love of his life, it will cost her her own.

In The Girl from Everywhere, Heidi Heilig blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility with witty, fast-paced dialogue, breathless adventure, and enchanting romance.

Why I Am Waiting

Three words for you: time traveling pirates. WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT?! Oh, I know, enchanting romance. Oh wait, it has that too! I never knew I needed a book like this until I was informed of the fact that such a book existed. I had the fortune of meeting Heidi at an Epic Reads party at New York Comic Con 2015, and I am so thankful I did because she is freaking awesome. I cannot wait for this book to be unleashed onto the world. I have huge hopes for it. Plus, it's published on my birthday so that means it has to be awesome.

Are you equally as excited for this book as me? Is there another book you are even more excited about? Please share your thoughts with me below!
