Waiting on Wednesday #168

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


Goodreads Description:

A thrilling, seductive new series from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, blending Beauty and the Beast with faerie lore.

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.

Perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and George R. R. Martin, this first book in a sexy and action-packed new series is impossible to put down!

Hardcover, 432 pages
Expected publication: May 5th 2015 by Bloomsbury Children's

I am all kinds of curious about this book. Yeah, I haven't read anything by Sarah yet, but I do own her books. I just need to get started ;p Okay, after I know how the romance thing works out :p Sigh. But this book. This book sounds so exciting. And that cover is stunning. I cannot wait to read this book. <3 And just crossing all my fingers it will be amazing. With no love triangle at all. I cannot wait to read it :) UPDATE. I wrote all those things above weeks ago. But now I have to update it. Because, damn. I have heard SO MANY good things about this book! And damn it. I want it so so much. Sigh. I really cannot wait for this book. And I wish I could read it right away. <3 It seems all kinds of perfect. So excited.
What are you waiting for on this thorny Wednesday? 


  1. This sounds SO good and I haven't read any of Sarah's books either, but it definitely seems like everyone loves her writing! Love the sound of the epic faerie-lore and the romance!

  2. I hope this one is better than her other fantasy series.

    Enjoy, C!

  3. This is a brilliant pick Carina, Sarah is an amazing author, I've read two of her books previously and loved them, so you really need to give one of her books a go soon!

  4. AGREED!! I'm entering all the ACOTAR ARCs giveaways there are because although I have it preordered I'm dyiiiing to get my hands on this one!!

  5. I loved Sarah's first series so can't wait to read this one too. Happy New Year!

  6. Jeg leste de fire kapitlene hun la ut og de var fantastiske. Jeg elsker Throne of Glass serien (min favoritt serie atm) så jeg gleder meg uendelig mye til denne kommer ut!!!

  7. YUSH omg I cannot wait for this one either! All the early reviews have been incredibly positive so I have high hopes.

    Happy New Year, Carina! <33

  8. Yup, this is right at the top of my "can't wait for" books of 2015!

    And you gotta get started on the Throne of Glass series! Make that one of your New Year's resolutions :P

  9. Me too--sounds like it will be a good one. Hope you get a chance to read it soon and happy new years!

  10. This book does sound fascinating and what a cover! I hope it is one you get to read soon since you are so excited for it. :)

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year! I always love visiting your blog and I hope that 2015 has wonderful things in store for you. Good health! Lots of laughs! Amazing books to read and lots of fabulous bookish treats too! :)

  11. I will crack open my ARC as soon as possible! I read through a few passages (not the end, but the beginning) and have liked what I've seen so far. I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Happy New Year :)

  12. Although I didn't enjoy Throne of Glass, I am SO excited for this one. The cover is just gorgeous and the early reviews have been incredibly positive so I definitely cannot wait for this to release. Great pick, Carina! :)

  13. Heee, can't wait for this one! Plus, it's NA so I'm very excited to see how the author pulled it off (probably amazingly since, ya know, it's Sarah J. Maas ;D) Super pick!

  14. Hahahaha. I'm DYING for this!! It just sounds so good! I have come to love the Throne of Glass books so much, so there are very high hopes for this! :D

  15. This book was amazing! I just read it last week and it's definitely on my top list. I love Sarah J. Maas' writing style.

  16. Gahh, I NEED this book. Awesome pick!

  17. Great choice this week, C! I am excited to read this one myself. We just need to start hoping/praying now that no love triangle will develop in book 2. I'm terrified of that happening. Thank you for sharing! I hope we both love the book. :)
