“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s pre-publication that I can not wait to read is (and sorry I can not, I refuse, to pick just one):
A Court of Thorns and Roses
By: Sarah J. Maas
Publication Date: May 5th
From Goodreads: When nineteen year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to 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 and ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it… or doom Tamlin -and his world-forever.
My second choice:
By: Sarah Dessen
Publication Date: May 5
Peyton, Sydney’s charismatic older brother, has always been the star of the family, receiving the lion’s share of their parent’s attention and-lately-concern. When Peyton’s increasingly reckless behavior culminates in an accident, a drunk driving conviction, and a jail sentence, Sydney is cast adrift, searching for her place in the family and the world. When everyone else is so worried about Peyton, is she the only one concerned about the victim of the accident?
Enter the Chathams, a warm, chaotic family who run a pizza parlor, play bluegrass on weekends, and pitch in to care for their mother, who has multiple sclerosis. Here Sydney experiences unquestioning acceptance. And here she meets Mac, gentle, watchful, and protective, who makes Sydney feel seen, really seen, for the first time.
