Waiting on Wednesday #148

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


Goodreads Description:

Sixteen-year-old Avery Roe wants only to take her rightful place as the sea witch of Prince Island, making the charms that keep the island's whalers safe and prosperous at sea. But before she could learn how to control her power, her mother - the first Roe woman in centuries to turn her back on magic - steals Avery away from her grandmother. Avery must escape before her grandmother dies, taking with her the secrets of the Roe's power.

The one magical remnant left to Avery is the ability to read dreams, and one night she foresees her own murder. Time is running short, both for her and for the people of her island who need the witches' help to thrive.

Avery has never read a dream that hasn't come true, but a tattooed harpoon boy named Tane tells her he can help her change her fate. Becoming a witch may prevent her murder and save her island from ruin, but Avery discovers it will also require a sacrifice she never expected. And as she falls in love with Tane, she learns it is his life and hers that hang in the balance.

A sweeping romance with a spellbinding twist - from a talented new voice in YA fiction.

I just learned of this book a short time ago. But I'm very curious about it. And crossing all my fingers that I will love it. <3 I'm worried about the ending, lol, as I have seen people are heartbroken over it. Ack. But so excited too. The UK publisher is sending me an review copy of this book, so I will be reading it very shortly, I hope :D I can't wait. Because oh. Both the UK and US cover is so gorgeous, hiih. <3
What are you waiting for on this dreamy wednesday?    


  1. Never heard of that book before! Sounds interesting I actually might preorder it.

  2. I love BOTH the covers but I personally prefer the UK one. Idk it's just the simplicity of it that makes it REALLY stick out and just become so awesome! I grabbed an e-arc of this off of Netgalley so I am diving in soon and I hope we'll both love it, hon!

    FANTASTIC pick!! :)
