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.

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone...

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don't kill each other first.

Excited for this one!! I enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy so I'm pretty much excited for whatever Leigh throws our way next!

TITLE: Six of Crows
AUTHOR: Leigh Bardugo
PUBLISHER: Henry Holt & Company
GENRE: Fantasy YA

RELEASE DATE: September 29, 2015

From New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu comes the second book in the exhilarating Young Elites series

Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.

Adelina Amouteru’s heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?

I had mixed feelings over The Young Elites, but hoping The Rose Society cements my fandom for this one!

  4. Great choices! I keep seeing Six of Crows but I haven't decided if I want to read it or not yet. I still need to read The Young Elites and I need to do it soon since The Rose Society is out later in the year! Hope you enjoy both of these :)

  6. Oh man six of Crows yeeeees. I can't remember if I've used that one yet. I want to read The Rose Society... But I don't know. I didn't really love The Young Elites, so that one I'll probably buy once the rest of the series is out. Great picks!

  11. I've heard Six of Crows is really good.

  12. YES! Two of my post anticipated releases of the fall. I have heard that Six of Crows is very different from the Grisha trilogy but I love a good heist story. And I loved The Young Elites, it's my kind of dark fantasy. I hope we both love them both.
