Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where you talk about books that you can't wait to read, but that are, unfortunately, not published yet.




The Diamond Thief by Sharon Gosling
Publication date: October 1, 2014
Publisher: Capstone Switch Press

No one performs on the circus trapeze like 16-year-old Rémy Brunel. But Rémy also leads another life, prowling through the backstreets of Victorian London as a jewel thief. When she is forced to steal one of the world’s most valuable diamonds, she uncovers a world of treachery and fiendish plots.

Meanwhile, young detective Thaddeus Rec is determined to find the jewel and clear his name. Will Thaddeus manage to rescue the jewel? Or is it really Rémy that he needs to save?



My brain saw the cover, the words "thief" and "circus", and that was that. I was sucked in. Books with thieves and girls and girl thieves are my weak spot. Or one of my weak spots. The dress and the hat on the cover are so beautiful too (Okay, I might not wear the hat. It looks good on her though). I actually requested it on NetGalley and it was approved!!

What are you looking forward to reading?

  1. The most intriguing part to me about the blurb: "young detective Thaddeus Rec". I'm digging the thief-detective love-love set-up. Also, that dress is fabulous! And why do English people have such nice hats?

    1. That could definitely be interesting. Thaddy is probably going to be all uptight and all follow-rules-all-the-time and Remy will be like "forget the rules". Yeah, I can see them clashing. But I love those kinds of relationships :D
      The dress is amazing, and I have no idea why the English get all the good hats (It's a conspiracy).

    1. No problem :) I know, aren't girl thieves amazing? Have you read Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen? It's a re-telling of Robin Hood and it has a girl thief in it.

  16. This looks like a great book!! Historical and strong female. I love that she's in a circus and a thief and looks mighty good doing it!! This is a great pick. I'm putting it on my TBR. I don't know where you saw it, but I need to tap into that resource. I never find books like this!

    1. I'm glad I could help! *grins* I found it at NetGalley when I was just browsing their YA fiction and I thought "Why not?" and requested it. Historical setting and strong heroines are the best. combo. ever. I love the outfit too :D
