Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating. This is my first week participating and I feel obligated to choose Sarah J. Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses. The cover is my favorite of 2015 so far and I just cannot wait to delve into my own copy when it debuts on May 5th!
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. (via Goodreads)
I have a bad habit of continuing to buy books… LOTS of books when I haven’t read a lot of the ones already sitting on my bookshelf. I’ve made resolution after resolution to stop doing this but when I walk into a bookstore and see a shiny new book sitting there all lonely, I can’t help but want to pick it up and give it a good home. It just seems like the right thing to do. Granted, sometimes I receive books from publishers in an exchange for an honest review so that will dictate what I read, but I still want to get better about reading what I own. Here are 5 books that I’ve already purchased that are sitting in my TBR pile.
Alienated by Melissa Landers
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
