Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme run by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we discuss the books we’re anxiously awaiting for release.

Book: Goliath
Author: Scott Westerfeld
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release date: September 20, 2011
Series: Leviathan #3

Summary from Goodreads: Alek and Deryn are on the last leg of their round-the-world quest to end World War I, reclaim Alekâ??s throne as prince of Austria, and finally fall in love. The first two objectives are complicated by the fact that their ship, the Leviathan, continues to detour farther away from the heart of the war (and crown). And the love thing would be a lot easier if Alek knew Deryn was a girl. (She has to pose as a boy in order to serve in the British Air Service.) And if they werenâ??t technically enemies.

The tension thickens as the Leviathan steams toward New York City with a homicidal lunatic on board: secrets suddenly unravel, characters reappear, and nothing is at it seems in this thunderous conclusion to Scott Westerfeldâ??s brilliant trilogy.

I fell absolutely in love with book one in this series, and you can read my five star review of Leviathan to see why. Well, Monday night I stayed up late finishing book two, Behemoth, and it likewise blew me away with its originality and incredible setting (look for my review on Monday!). I can say without hesitation that this is my favorite series this year and I am so anxious to read what is sure to be an epic conclusion to Alek and Deryn’s story. It’s a good thing Galley Grab came through last month and that I can dive in right away!

Have you read this series yet? (If not, WHY NOT?!?!) What books are you waiting on?

    I haven't read any books in this series yet, but I've heard amazing things (as reinforced by your 5-star review) so I need to give them a try:)

  2. Christine Murray says:

    See? This is why I love blogging. I'd never heard of this series, yet I love steampunk. I must give this a go.

    I feel for you though. Waiting is not my strong point!

  3. Amanda @ On a Book Bender says:

    I have not read this series, either. Another one of my friends really liked it and I'm about to go read your review too. Why do I have the feeling it's going to end up on my wishlist?

  4. Gina @ My Precious says:

    Guess I've been living under a rock, I didn't know Leviathan was a series, let alone had a THIRD book coming out. Great pick!

  5. AliyaPM says:

  8. Rubita says:

    I can't wait for you to read this. I want to talk about it, especially the end. I gulped it down the moment I saw it on GalleyGrab. One gulp.
