Waiting on Wednesday #139

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


Goodreads Description:

Fans of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices can get to know warlock Magnus Bane like never before in this collection of New York Times bestselling tales, in print for the first time with an exclusive new story and illustrated material.

I cannot wait to read The Bane Chronicles. <3 As I have not yet read the ten short stories, despite them all being up to buy one by one. I wanted to wait for this hardcover. So I am waiting. Until November. Ack. So long, lol. But I will wait. And I am so excited :D As I adore Magnus so, so very much. <3
What are you waiting for on this glittery wednesday?  


  1. I actually read the first short story from The Bane Chronicles and really liked it! I had no idea they were going to publish them all together as well but in hindsight I should have known :P

    I am sure the wait will be worth it though! :D

    Great pick, Carina!! :)

  3. Looking forward to this book :) I'm pretty sure I'll like this series/book, since I loved the other books by Cassandra Clare.

  4. I haven't picked up any of the shorts either, but I can't wait to start them, cause I LOVE Magnus too! ;p And I'm probs going to wait for the HB too. Great pick, Carina! :D

  5. I read all the short stories as they were published, and some were amazing and others were more so so, but I'm sure that buying the whole book is still a good idea!
    Cannot wait to see what you think of it!

  6. what a cool cover! i'm intrigued! i love short stories.

  7. I've never heard of this, but these authors are wonderful. Hope you get your hands on this soon, Carina. Great choice! :)

  8. Yeessss. I would like this, too. I put off reading them one by one because I knew they'd eventually be out in a book, and well...look at that cover! :D Can't wait.

  9. I think I'm the same way! If I do end up reading these, I'd rather read them in one package, rather than individually. I bet it'll be so pretty too! Great pick Carina! :D
