Waiting on Wednesday (on Thursday)

Yesterday was a busy day for me, so I wasn't able to put my 'Waiting on Wednesday' up. But i'll do it today since this one is going to be good! ;)

But first, I would really like to thank the amazing Eleni from La Femme Readers for helping me kick-start my Twlight Saga Bookened Contest!

You're awesome!

Title: The Iron Thorn
Author: Caitlin Kittredge
Pages: 512
A series set in a Lovecraftian industrial city in an alternate 1950s that centers on a mechanically gifted young girl approaching her 16th birthday, the age at which everyone in her family goes insane, leaving it up to her to unravel the mystery of their madness--and save the world. It is 1955...but not the 1955 you know. The Witchcraft Scare polarizes America. Magic is outlawed and practitioners are burned. And one girls has discovered that
magic is neither fiction nor fairy tale, but very much alive... Aoife Grayson is a month shy of sixteen, the age when everyone in her family goes mad. An orphan in the steam-powered city of Lovecraft, Massachusetts, Aoife escapes the confines of her repressive boarding school and along with her best friend Sam and outlaw guide Dean, sets out to discover the secret of her family's madness. What she discovers is a world of forbidden magic and faerie curses, and a dark secret that has shadowed the Grayson family for generations. Aoife must choose between keeping the secret or keeping her sanity, and unravel the dark machinations of the Winter Court of the Fae before it's too late to save her city...or herself.

My Thoughts:
What! Another Fae book? I'm okay with that ;)
I'm really liking the cover and how this book is definetly going to be different than other faerie books out there. I'm looking forward to see the world that Caitlin Kittredge creates and how she portrays the 1950's. And it's 512 pages! I love long books, more room for detail and imagination.
I don't know if I like the main character's name though...Aoife. Hmm.

What are your thoughts on The Iron Thorn?
