Waiting on Wednesday!

As you probably know, this is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers gush about what they're waiting for on Wednesday.

Book one of a new four-book series. Richard "Dick" Gansey has it all: family money, good looks, devoted friends. But he's on a quest for much more: Glendower, a legendary Welsh king.
Blue Sargent, the daughter of the town psychic, has been told for as long as she can remember that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. Surrounded by the Raven Boys — the rich boys at prestigious Aglionby Academy — she never thought this prediction would be a problem. When Gansey and his Raven Boys enter her life, however, she's not so sure.

So, this is probably an obvious one, but I've had The Raven Boys on my list ever since the name was announced.  The cover is absolutely beautiful, and I can't wait to read it, whenever that will be.

Sixteen-year-old Ember Morrow is promised to a group called Conatus after one of their healers saves her mother's life. Once she arrives, Ember finds joy in wielding swords, learning magic, and fighting the encroaching darkness loose in the world. She also finds herself falling in love with her mentor, the dashing, brooding, and powerful Barrow Hess. When the knights realize Eira, one of their leaders, is dabbling in dark magic, Ember and Barrow must choose whether to follow Eira into the nether realm or to pledge their lives to destroying her and her kind.
With action, adventure, magic, and tantalizing sensuality, this book is as fast-paced and breathtaking as the Nightshade novels.
This is another obvious book to be waiting on.  Just look at the cover and read the synopsis!  I'm a huge fan of Andrea Cremer and was super happy when I met her in February.  I love all the action and it's historical fiction-ness!  I love historical fiction.
Well, that's it for my Waiting on Wednesday. Leave a comment and tell me what's yours.  I'll be glad to see what you're waiting for! :D


  1. Both of these sound incredibly interesting! I'm excited for The Raven Boys, because even though I didn't fall in love with the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, I liked the writing, so I'm really interested to see what Maggie does with this book. And I can't wait for Rift! I really want to know what happened prior to Nightshade, and look forward to learning a lot more about the world that Ms. Cremer created in the Nightshade trilogy.

    Great picks!

  2. I have both of those books sitting in my TBR pile from BEA!!! The first one I have a story about, can't wait to read it, review it, and tell my story about it! Great picks! I put all my books from BEA in order based on when they're being published, so that I can read them and post reviews closer to when they come out.


I love to hear from people, so comment away! What do you think of this post?
