Waiting on Wednesday: A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which puts the spotlight on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

I’m rather overdue a Waiting on Wednesday post, and after seeing a video of Sarah J. Maas introducing her new book, A Court of Mist and Fury, on the Waterstones YouTube channel, I thought it was perfect timing for a new WoW post.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

Publication date: 3 May 2016 by Bloomsbury Childrens

Genre: Fantasy, Romance

SynopsisFeyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court – but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms–and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future–and the future of a world cleaved in two. (Goodreads)

Why I’m looking forward to it: I totally fell in love with the first book in this series, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and I’m a big fan of Sarah’s Throne of Glass series, so my yearning for this book is par the course. I’m looking forward to seeing how Feyre fares at the Night Court and how she holds up against Rhysand’s charm especially after how things were left at the end of the first book.

The series so far has delivered great drama and has really populated my bookish boyfriends list (Rhysand, Tamlin and Lucien? Yes please!) Plus it has delivered more new adult-esque romance which was really welcome after ToG readers were left a little wanting 😉 

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

Waiting on Wednesday: Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which puts the spotlight on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

New WoW

This is my first time participating in the WoW meme (or any book blogging meme for that matter…) but I’m hoping to make it a regular feature on Bookish At Heart.

This week’s pick is…

TenThousandSkiesAboveYou_EpicReadsTen Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray

Publication date: 3 December 2015 by HarperTeen

Genre: Sci-fi, Romance

Synopsis: In this sequel to A Thousand Pieces of You by New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray, Marguerite races through various dimensions to save the boy she loves.Ever since she used the Firebird, her parents’ invention, to cross through to alternate dimensions, Marguerite has caught the attention of enemies who will do anything to force her into helping them dominate the multiverse – even hurt the people she loves. She resists until her boyfriend, Paul, is attacked, and his consciousness is scattered across multiple dimensions.

The hunt for each splinter of Paul’s soul sends Marguerite racing through a war-torn San Francisco, the criminal underworld of New York City, and a glittering Paris where another Marguerite hides a shocking secret. Each dimension brings Marguerite one step closer to rescuing Paul. But with every trial she faces, she begins to question the one constant she’s found between the worlds: their love for each other. (Amazon)

Why I’m looking forward to it: I’m super duper excited for this book! I reviewed the first book in the series, A Thousand Pieces of You, earlier this year (you can find it here!) and gave it a solid four stars. This book looks like it will have more fast-paced adventures taking place in exotic locations (“war-torn San Francisco” anyone?) Plus just LOOK AT THAT BEAUT COVER. Enough said 🙂
