Waiting On Wednesday #20 | An Enchantment of Ravens

newWOW.png

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases that you’re eagerly anticipating!


This week I’m spotlighting An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. I stumbled across this one a few weeks back and two words had me sold on it before I even finished reading the synopsis – fair folk. I’ve probably said it a million times now but any book with faeries is one that I automatically add to my TBR. That plus the fact that this book sounds like it’s going to be incredible has me beyond excited to read it once it’s released.

30969741Release Date: September 26th, 2017
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Goodreads Synopsis: 

Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized among them. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.

Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love, violating the fair folks’ ruthless Good Law. There’s only one way to save both their lives, Isobel must drink from the Green Well, whose water will transform her into a fair one—at the cost of her Craft, for immortality is as stagnant as it is timeless.

Isobel has a choice: she can sacrifice her art for a future, or arm herself with paint and canvas against the ancient power of the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.

newWOW.png

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases that you’re eagerly anticipating!


This week I’m spotlighting Tarnished City (Dark Gifts #2) by Vic James. At the end of last year/beginning of this year I had the opportunity to read and review the first book in the series, Gilded Cage, early and I ended up loving it so much. It was my first five star read of the year and left me wanting to have the second book in my hands ASAP. So, you know, I am beyond excited for this book. Counting down the days and wishing it was September already excited. Which means I had to do a Waiting on Wednesday post for it. I just really can’t wait to find out what happens next!

33192012Release Date: September 5th, 2017
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Dystopia
Goodreads Synopsis: 

The continuation of the darkly fantastical Downton Abbey-esque series—set in an England where curiously gifted aristocrats reign—and the commoners who are doomed to serve them attempt to spark a revolution.

The rebellion to free the lower classes from ten years of forced service to unfairly advantaged, magically powered rulers may have failed. Teenage siblings and would be revolutionaries – one imprisoned, the other desperate for aid – have seen their magical allies stripped of their power. While the mysterious young aristocrat has revealed the incredible extent of his dark gifts.

Waiting On Wednesday #18 | The Cruel Prince

newWOW.png

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases that you’re eagerly anticipating!


This week I’m spotlighting The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. Which actually doesn’t release until 2018 but, well, I’m really excited for it and want to feature it now. I was recently recommended Holly Black’s books and when I checked Goodreads and stumbled across this one it automatically went on my TBR. One, I love faerie books. Two, it sounds dark and I need more dark books in my life. So, yeah, I can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

26032825.jpgRelease Date: January 2nd, 2018
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Goodreads Synopsis: 

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

Waiting On Wednesday #17 | The Wood

newWOW.png

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases that you’re eagerly anticipating!


This week I’m spotlighting a fantasy standalone that I’m highly anticipating, The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski. I discovered this while browsing NetGalley last week and was instantly drawn in by the synopsis and the mention of a portal and how kind of dark it all sounds. I’ve not seen much about it but from the reviews on Goodreads so far it definitely seems like one to watch out for. I can’t wait to read it!

27258139Release Date: August 1st, 2017
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Goodreads Synopsis: 

After her father goes missing in the woods that they protect, Winter tries to seek the truth in what happened, why the wood is changing, and what it all has to do with the arrival of a mysterious stranger in this thrilling YA debut.

When Winter’s dad goes missing during his nightly patrol of the wood, it falls to her to patrol the time portals and protect the travelers who slip through them. Winter can’t help but think there’s more to her dad’s disappearance than she’s being told.

She soon finds a young man traveling in the wood named Henry who knows more than he should. He believes if they can work together to find his missing parents, they could discover the truth about Winter’s dad.

The wood is poisoned, changing into something sinister—torturing travelers lost it. Winter must put her trust in Henry in order to find the truth and those they’ve lost.

Bobulski’s eerie debut is filled with friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.

Waiting On Wednesday #16 | Words On Bathroom Walls

newWOW.png

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases that you’re eagerly anticipating!


It’s been a long time since I last did Waiting On Wednesday. I stopped doing it because most of my anticipated reads were for 2017 and didn’t have blurbs. Alas, it’s 2017 and I have a whole slew of new anticipated reads so I’m going to start doing it again.

This week I’ll be spotlighting Words On Bathroom Walls by Julia Walton. I stumbled across this title while surfing NetGalley one day and automatically added it to my TBR because of the fact that the main character has schizophrenia. I’ve yet to find a YA contemporary that has great representation as far as schizophrenia goes but I’ve been seeing some positive reviews so I have hope for this book.

25695640
Release Date: July 4th, 2017
Genre: YA, Contemporary
Goodreads Synopsis: 

Fans of More Happy Than Not, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and It’s Kind of a Funny Story will cheer for Adam as he struggles with schizophrenia in this brilliantly honest and unexpectedly funny debut.

Adam has just been diagnosed with schizophrenia. He sees and hears people who aren’t there: Rebecca, a beautiful girl who understands him; the Mob Boss, who harasses him; and Jason, the naked guy who’s unfailingly polite. It should be easy to separate the real from the not real, but Adam can’t.

Still, there’s hope. As Adam starts fresh at a new school, he begins a drug trial that helps him ignore his visions. Suddenly everything seems possible, even love. When he meets Maya, a fiercely intelligent girl, he desperately wants to be the great guy that she thinks he is. But then the miracle drug begins to fail, and Adam will do anything to keep Maya from discovering his secret.

This week I’m spotlighting The Struggle (Titan #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I am beyond excited for this book. Excited to the point of freaking out and dropping everything every single time the author posts something about it on her FB group.

newWOW.png

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event/post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that someone is eagerly anticipating!


This week I’m spotlighting RoseBlood by A.G. Howard. I am beyond excited for this book! The second I heard that it was a Phantom of the Opera retelling I knew I was going to want to read it. I’m a huge Phantom of the Opera fan. Combine that with the fact that the synopsis sounds incredible and there goes another spot on my most anticipated releases list for next year. I can’t wait! Plus, look at that cover! 😍

28818314Release Date: January 10th, 2017

Genre: YA, Fantasy, Retelling, Romance

Goodreads Synopsis:

In this modern day spin on Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. Hoping creative direction will help her, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera.

At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn—an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself, but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks. As the two discover an otherworldly connection and a soul-deep romance blossoms, Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light and he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known.

A. G. Howard brings the romantic storytelling that Splintered fans adore to France—and an entirely new world filled with lavish romance and intrigue—in a retelling inspired by a story that has captivated generations. Fans of both the Phantom of the Opera musical and novel, as well as YA retellings such as Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, will devour RoseBlood.

Waiting On Wednesday #11 | Fire In You

newWOW.png

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event/post hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that someone is eagerly anticipating!


This week I’m spotlighting Fire In You (Wait For You #6) by Jennifer L. Armentrout! Which I am extremely excited for but also kind of feeling sad about because it’s the last book. I’ve grown so attached to the characters and each new book brings with it the old characters along with new ones that I end up attached to as well. This one in particular is bringing back some characters that I really love so tears are sure to ensue. Either way, it’s by JLA so I know it’s going to be amazing and that I am going to love it! 🙈

20980797Release Date: Nov, 28th, 2016

Genre: NA, Contemporary, Romance

Goodreads Synopsis:

From the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J.Lynn, comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page…

Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun. It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.

She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.

Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the past sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.

If you’re curious and have not checked out the first book in the series you can do so here.
