Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book released we are excited for.
My choice this week is:
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
Release Date: 5th May 2015
“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.”
So i’m going to be honest, i was planning on loving this book because it’s Sarah J. Maas. The Throne of Glass series is now up there as one of my all time favourite series and i absolutely love her writing style. However then i found out this book was going to be about the Fae. If you don’t already know i absolutely love the fae, there aren’t currently enough books featuring them and i have a feeling that after this is released that will no longer be the case. So this was already going to be a match set in heaven and then i found out something else, its also partially a Beauty and the Beast retelling. My mind is blown, fairy tale retellings are also some of my favourite books to read. This combination can be nothing short of spectacular, i’ve read the first 5 chapters from the sampler on amazon and oh my god. This book and subsequent series is probably going to straight away join my all-time favourite books and i can’t wait any longer!
What are your picks for this week?
Thanks for reading,
