christmas

Hello everyone! I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas to all those that celebrate! If not, then Happy Holidays! I hope you all have a lovely day spent with family and friends and the perfect read. I was going to say by the warm fire, but where I am right now it’s about 60 degrees Fahrenheit, so, no fire needed! Also, I’m writing this post on Christmas Eve, but I’ll most likely take to Twitter sometime Christmas day to chat with everyone. So, now on to the final day of Top 10 of 2015! Continue reading “MERRY CHRISTMAS! & Top 10 of 2015 | Books I’m Looking Forward to in 2016”

Early Excitement: March 2015

Early Excitement

I feel like I say this each month but: some of my most-anticipated reads of the year are coming out this month and OHMYGOSH I can’t contain my excitement!!! Okay, so there are only four books that I have on my list, but as I said, the excitement!

   

The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski — March 3rd, 2015
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows — March 10th, 2015
Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver — March 10th, 2015
Little Peach by Peggy Kern — March 10th, 2015

Both The Winner’s Crime and The Orphan Queen I’ve talked about before on the blog in old WoW posts, but Vanishing Girls and Little Peach I don’t think I’ve mentioned. These two have been quiet excitements for me. I’m particularly excited for Little Peach in that it sounds like Stolen, which tore my heart in a billion pieces, so DUH, I need another book to do the same thing!

What upcoming March releases are you excited about?

Waiting on…The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!

Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Release  Date: March 10, 2015

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Wilhelmina has a hundred identities.

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others

Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.

why i can't waitAlthough I’ve only read one of Jodi Meadows’ books, I absolutely LOVED it. I plan to finish her Incarnate series very soon! This book came onto my radar a long time ago. I actually found out about it through Jodi Meadows’ Pinterest when she was pinning ideas for this book. Ever since I’ve been keeping my eye out for news regarding it’s release and finally yesterday we got a cover reveal! Isn’t it beautiful?! Aside from the cover, the book sounds amazing too. A princess AND a spy, plus MAGIC?! Sounds right up my alley!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
