Waiting on Wednesday: May 18

I’m participating in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine. This gives me a chance to show the books I’m looking forward to in the next few months.

Check out Breaking the Spine for more information.




The High Ground by Melinda M. Snodgrass

Series: Imperials #1

Publication Date: July 5

Genre: Science Fiction, Space Opera

Synopsis: Emperor’s daughter Mercedes is the first woman ever admitted to the High Ground, the elite training academy of the Solar League’s Star Command, and she must graduate if she is to have any hope of taking the throne. Her classmate Tracy has more modest goals–to rise to the rank of captain, and win fame and honor. But a civil war is coming and the political machinations of those who yearn for power threatens the young cadets. In a time of intrigue and alien invasion, they will be tested as they never thought possible.

Why this book sounds good to me:

  • I really like space opera.
  • I like military science fiction

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. Great choice, I have one of her books from her other series, but I haven’t had to chance to check it out yet. I’m curious!


    1. I’m curious about this book, too, Mogsy. I think I may have read a book by her that she wrote under a pseudonym.


  2. Space opera is my favourite type of sci-fi, and I’m always happy to see a person of colour on cover art. This one has me intrigued!


  3. This sounds great! I’ve not read anything by her before, I don’t think. Added to my to-read list…
