Waiting on Wednesday

I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.


In her third book about the delightful Woodcutter sisters, Alethea Kontis masterfully weaves "The Wild Swans," "The Goose Girl," and a few other fine-feathered fairy tales into a magical, romantic companion novel to Enchanted and Hero.

Readers met the Woodcutter sisters (named after the days of the week) in Enchanted and Hero. In this delightful third book, Alethea Kontis weaves together some fine-feathered fairy tales to focus on Friday Woodcutter, the kind and loving seamstress. When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday's palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he's her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday's unique magic somehow break the spell?




I really like this series! It's a cute fairytale esque kind of series! I had an ARC from NG, but sadly was never able to read it because I could not get the file to open on ANY platform! Most upsetting since I really wanted to read it too!

TITLE: Dearest
AUTHOR: Alethea Kontis
PUBLISHER: HMH Books for Young Readers
GENRE: Fantasy YA
RELEASE DATE: February 3, 2015


The thrilling third installment to the Edgar-nominated, bestselling series.

Rory and her friends are reeling from a series of sudden and tragic events. While racked with grief, Rory tries to determine if she acted in time to save a member of the squad. If she did, how do you find a ghost? Also, Rory’s classmate Charlotte has been kidnapped by Jane and her nefarious organization. Evidence is uncovered of a forty-year-old cult, ten missing teenagers, and a likely mass murder. Everything indicates that Charlotte’s in danger, and it seems that something much bigger and much more terrible is coming.

Time is running out as Rory fights to find her friends and the ghost squad struggles to stop Jane from unleashing her spectral nightmare on the entire city. In the process, they'll discover the existence of an organization that underpins London itself—and Rory will learn that someone she trusts has been keeping a tremendous secret.


I STILL need to read the second one, but have put it off because it apparently had a helluva cliffhanger! So I've been waiting 2 years now to start it! At least I waited and saved myself from more pain of cliffhanger-itis! Can't wait to read it! And it was very challenging creating this post without letting my eyes linger!


TITLE: The Shadow Cabinet
AUTHOR: Maureen Johnson
PUBLISHER: Putnam Juvenile
GENRE: Paranormal YA

RELEASE DATE: February 10, 2015

  5. Dearest is going to be good I hope. It's so annoying when you can't open a book on any format that you have, trust me I understand. Shadow Cabinet looks really good.

  23. Oh my goodness, both of those look like they would be two great reads. I can't tell which one I want to read more now, the fairy tale or the second one. I absolutely love the gorgeous cover on the second one though. :)

  24. I love the Woodcutter series. I won an arc from Goodreads. :) That sucks about your eArc not opening up. Did you contact NG? Maybe they updated the file since you downloaded it. Or have you tried using Calibre? I haven't read the Maureen Johnson series. Is it good?
