"Waiting On" Wednesday #34

“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release that we’re eagerly anticipating. Let the salivating commence.

My pick this week:

Bitterblue (The Seven Kingdoms 3)
By: Kristin Cashore
Publisher: Dial
Release Date: May 1, 2012


Eight years after Graceling, Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck’s reign, and forget anything bad every happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle – disguised and alone – to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past. Two thieves, who only steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck’s reign. And one of them, with an extreme skill called a Grace that he hasn’t yet identified, holds a key to her heart.

Why I’m Waiting: I LOVED both Graceling and Fire, and I am so so excited for this third book in the series. Kristin Cashore is awesome and I can’t wait to fall in love with these characters all over again.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
