Waiting on Wednesday #269

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


Goodreads Description:

A new epic fantasy by National Book Award finalist and New York Times bestselling author Laini Taylor of the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy.

The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around— and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he's been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to cross half the world in search of it. Then a stunning opportunity presents itself, in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legendary warriors, and he has to seize his chance to lose his dream forever.

What happened in Weep two hundred years ago to cut it off from the rest of the world? What exactly did the Godslayer slay that went by the name of god? And what is the mysterious problem he now seeks help in solving?

The answers await in Weep, but so do more mysteries—including the blue-skinned goddess who appears in Lazlo's dreams. How did he dream her before he knew she existed? and if all the gods are dead, why does she seem so real?

In this sweeping and breathtaking new novel by National Book Award finalist Laini Taylor, author of the New York Times bestselling Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, the shadow of the past is as real as the ghosts who haunt the citadel of murdered gods. Fall into a mythical world of dread and wonder, moths and nightmares, love and carnage.

Welcome to Weep.

I have been hearing about this book for ages now; with everyone being excited about it. Yet I had not read the summary until last week sometime. Ack. But now I'm super excited about reading this book too :D It sounds weird and awesome. I think I will love it. I just wish I could read it right now, lol. Fingers crossed it will be amazing. I haven't read anything by Laini yet, but I have her books, so one day :D
What are you waiting for on this strange Wednesday?


  1. I think I'm reserving judgement on this one. I'm not terribly excited for it yet because Laini's writing is an acquired taste and her last book didn't really do it for me. :/

  2. So so so excited to read this book! You must read the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, Carina! This new book was supposed to publish in September (2016), but got pushed back... hopefully the new publication date sticks. I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a fantastic week. =)

  3. I can't wait to get my hands on this book - I loved the daughter of smoke and bone trilogy so can't wait to see how this new book will compare :) Great choice!

  4. I know I'm weird in not loving this author. But this book sounds good.

  5. I had some issues with her other series, but I hope you get your hands on it soon and enjoy it, Carina! :)
