Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and talk about the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting On Wednesday hosted at Breaking the Spine.


Invictus by Ryan Graudin 
Expected publication: September 26th 2017 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers


Time flies when you’re plundering history.

Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time-traveling Recorder from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in Rome in 95 AD, Far’s birth defies the laws of nature. Exploring history himself is all he’s ever wanted, and after failing his final time-traveling exam, Far takes a position commanding a ship with a crew of his friends as part of a black market operation to steal valuables from the past.
But during a heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Armed with knowledge that will bring Far’s very existence into question, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to discover a frightening truth: History is not as steady as it seems.

In this heart-stopping adventure, Ryan Graudin has created a fast-paced world that defies time and space.

Invictus just sounds SO amazing! It’s like the description of the book has been written to appeal to me especially. That’s how much I love the sound of it. I honestly wish the release date wasn’t so far away because I want to read it right now! But I guess I can be patient… If I have to. πŸ˜‰

  3. I have several of Graudin's books, and she captivated me at her YallFest panel back in 2015, but I have yet to read any of her books. I have only heard good things though, and should get on that.
