Mom - Waiting on Wed

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating.

Have you ever seen the show (or the TV movies) The Librarians on TBS? Well, when I saw the synopsis for this book it immediately reminded me of it. And I have to say I’m a huge fan 😀 I have a soft-spot for historical fiction but when you blend it with a bit of science fiction and fantasy I get grabby hands.
