Waiting on Wednesday: The Girl in the Steel Corset

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. This is where we talk about books that we simply will do almost anything to get our hands on.

My choice for this week is:

Title: The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles #1)
Author: Kady Cross
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: May 24th, 2011
To get this on your TBR pile as well....: She thought there was something wrong with her. She was right. 
Finley Jayne has known for quite some time that she isn’t ‘normal,’ but when she beats up the son of her employer and is forced to flee, she stumbles into a world where there are bigger freaks than her. They take her in, treat her like family and demand her trust. How can Finley trust them when she can’t trust herself? And why is she drawn to the powerful Griffin as well as the dangerous Jack? She has to get herself under control before she gets into trouble she can’t get out of. 

Griffin King is one of the most powerful men in Britain but he couldn’t save his best friend from almost dying. He is determined to save Finley and help her become the person he knows she can be, but there’s evil afoot in London. Machines have attacked humans under the orders of a nefarious criminal called The Machinist. He has sworn to protect his country against such a threat, but he’s never faced any foe like this. However, when he discovers The Machinist’s connection to his past, Griffin vows to end the villain once and for all — but he’ll need the help of all his friends, including the beautiful Finley Jayne – the girl in the steel corset.

I've been pining after this book for quite a while. I mean, look at that cover! And the title is just too cool! It wasn't until recently that I figured out that it was on NetGalley! I just got it today!(THANK YOU!) SOOOO happy to start this one. Steampunk rocks my socks and this one looks amazing! Even though the file is on my computer, this doesn't officially come out until May....plus I haven't started reading it yet...which means I'm still waiting for it, right?

What are you waiting for?
