Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that everyone’s excited about! This week I am waiting for…..
The first book I am waiting for is Royally Yours by Emma Chase! Out October 30th 2018.
Blurb: Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco. It’s a big deal.
When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t… is married.
It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.
Even Queens. Especially them. Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.
And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.
Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.
Why I’m excited: I really love the Royally series and I’m really excited for Royally Yours because it’s set in a different time with new characters. I really enjoy boys that are in the same universe as other books but has a different plot with new characters we haven’t read about. It’s familiar but contemporary.
The Necromancer’s Bride by Brianna Hale, out October 20th 2018.Blurb: When I was a child he brought me back from the brink of death. Since that day I have borne his mark, a black star in the center of my left palm. The villagers say it brands me as evil. I think it means something far worse. It marks me as his.
The disease that nearly killed me has returned to the village and children are dying. I’m the only one who dares to climb the mountain and learn his secrets. In exchange I’m to clean his house and help with his strange experiments, but Meremon wants more. He wants me. And it isn’t long before I discover that his demands are as twisted as his experiments. Warning: This story is a dark fantasy romance with scenes of non-consent and dubious consent. Additionally, Meremon is a necromancer and enjoys unusual things. Some sex scenes might be strange or creepy for some readers.
As always with Brianna Hale books, no cheating, and a guaranteed happily ever after. THE NECROMANCER’S BRIDE is a novella of 16,000 words.
Why I’m excited: I’ve been following Brianna Hale for awhile now and I am kicking myself I haven’t read any books of hers yet! But I’m super excited for The Necromancer’s Bride because I feel like it’s perfect for October and the Halloween season; but also because I enjoy reading darker romances and the blurb really got me interested!
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black out January 8th 2019
Blurb: You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.
Why I’m excited: I just finished re-reading The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (if you’re interested check out my review here⟵) for review and I liked it a lot more than the first time I read it. Although it really didn’t end on a cliff hanger I do have some questions and I’m really curious to see how everything that happened in The Cruel Prince play out in The Wicked King. We have a long time to wait for it though, January is three months away!
Those are my picks for Waiting On Wednesday! Do you have some books you’re waiting for? I am so impatient so it’s hard for me to wait on things, ESPECIALLY books. One of the reasons I love the romance genre book world so much is because the waiting isn’t bad, usually only a few months which isn’t bad at all. Compared to the Young Adult which usually takes a year or more. Anyway please let me know what your Waiting On Wednesday picks are!
