Waiting on Wednesday #130

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Goodreads Description:

From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a riveting new series that defies what you think you know about the world of magic.

From two bestselling superstars, a dazzling and magical middle-grade collaboration centering on the students of the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. In this first book, a new student comes to the Magisterium against his will -- is it because he is destined to be a powerful magician, or is the truth more twisted than that? It's a journey that will thrill you, surprise you, and make you wonder about the clear-cut distinction usually made between good and evil.

Hardcover, 400 pages
Expected publication: September 9th 2014 by Doubleday Children's Books

  8. I didn't realise this had a cover! I completely love it. I also somehow missed that this was a MG novel. I guess I never actually read the description properly. But I'm excited about it, and hope that the two authors managed to make their styles work together well. Great pick, Carina! Thanks for sharing. :)

  9. Sounds good, hope you get to read it soon.

  10. I'm not a big fan of MG, but I love Holly Black's books and writing and it's nice to see Cassandra Clare move out of her typical writing zone, so I'm curious to see what readers think of this one. I definitely adore the cover. Thanks for sharing, Carina! :)

  11. I don't read much MG but I just might pick this up because it's Cassie Clare! Love her writing so much <3
    Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I've heard about this book a few times now, but never really knew what it was about. I know how much you love your middle grade books, so I hope you end up enjoying this book. Brilliant pick Carina! :)
