Waiting on Wednesday AND a Contest for the Book!

Hey everyone-- yep, it's Wednesday again, which means it's time to choose a book that I can't wait to read when it comes out.
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started at Breaking the Spine bookblog, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I usually like to list a few reasons why this book made the top of my 'wish list', but it's purely up to you!
This week, I'm doing something a bit different. I was checking out my fellow blogger's posts, when I came across a contest link on Paradoxical's for an ARC of an upcoming YA novel, Magic Under Glass. Now, I've never heard of this book before (possibly since it doesn't come out for so long, December!), but that didn't stop me from reading the summary and instantly adding it to my wishlist! :D
So, besides posting the contest link below, I'm also going to have this book be my WoW for this week! (The contest link for extra entries, I'll admit, but also to help spread the word since I know how hard it is sometimes to get contest information out there. Hint, see my own contest here...) So, here's some information on the book first:

Title: Magic Under Glass Author: Jackie Dolamore

Genre: YA, Fantasy, Magic

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA

Publication Date: December 22, 2009
Summary (Author's blog/website):
Coming 12/22/09 from Bloomsbury...
Nimira is a music-hall girl used to dancing for pennies. So when wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to sing accompaniment to a mysterious piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it will be the start of a better life. In Parry's world, long-buried secrets are about to stir. Unsettling rumors begin to swirl about ghosts, a madwoman roaming the halls, and Parry’s involvement in a group of corrupt sorcerers for whom the rules of the living and dead are meant to be broken for greater power. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing fairy gentleman is trapped within the automaton, she is determined to break the curse. But even as the two fall into a love that seems hopeless, breaking the curse becomes a perilous race against time. Because it's not just the future of these star-crossed lovers that's at stake, but the fate of the entire magical world.
Want to win an ARC with original sketches from the author inside? See for details! Head on over today to have your name entered into the contest! And be sure to look for Jackie's book in stores every where this December! I know I will. :D ENJOY! Until Next Time, The Book Queen
