Waiting on Wednesday

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

Emika Chen barely made it out of the Warcross Championships alive. Now that she knows the truth behind Hideo's new NeuroLink algorithm, she can no longer trust the one person she's always looked up to, who she once thought was on her side.

Determined to put a stop to Hideo's grim plans, Emika and the Phoenix Riders band together, only to find a new threat lurking on the neon-lit streets of Tokyo. Someone's put a bounty on Emika's head, and her sole chance for survival lies with Zero and the Blackcoats, his ruthless crew. But Emika soon learns that Zero isn't all that he seems--and his protection comes at a price.

Caught in a web of betrayal, with the future of free will at risk, just how far will Emika go to take down the man she loves?

I am dying to read this one! I read Warcross as an ARC last year but sadly seems I'll be waiting awhile still to read this one! Eager to see what will happen after that explosive ending last year!

TITLE: Wildcard
AUTHOR: Marie Lu
PUBLISHER: G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers
GENRE: Thriller YA
RELEASE DATE: September 18, 2018

Once there were two sisters born with a bond so strong that it forged them together forever. When they were angry, mirrors shattered, and when they were happy, flowers bloomed. It was a magic they cherished—until the day a terrible accident took Essie’s life and trapped her soul in this world.

Dax—the heir to Firgaard’s throne—was responsible for the accident. Roa swore to hate him forever. But eight years later he returned, begging for her help. He was determined to dethrone his cruel father, under whose oppressive reign Roa’s people had suffered. Roa made him a deal: she’d give him the army he needed if he made her queen.

Together with Dax and his sister, Asha, Roa and her people waged war and deposed a tyrant. But now Asha is on the run, hiding from the price on her head. And Roa is an outlander queen, far from home and married to her enemy. Worst of all: Dax’s promises go unfulfilled. Roa’s people continue to suffer.

Then a chance to right every wrong arises—an opportunity for Roa to rid herself of this enemy king and rescue her beloved sister. During the Reliquishing, when the spirits of the dead are said to return, Roa can reclaim her sister for good.

All she has to do is kill the king.

I still need to read The Last Namsara but I am having high hopes that I will love it and will want to read this one! Since my last WoW didn't turn out the way I hoped for one of them, realllly hoping this will be a book I want to read!

GENRE: Fantasy YA
RELEASE DATE: September 25, 2018 



  1. I have yet to read the first book of either of this series! The Last Namasara looks awesome though and I definitely want to pick it up.
    I hope they both live up to your expectations!

  2. Absolutely waiting on Wildcard, especially after that ending to Warcross.

  3. The Caged Queen is so pretty!! I still need to read The Last Namsara!

  4. Both of these sequels look great, but I haven't read either of the first books. I often get excited for sequels before I've started the series, too! :D

  5. The Caged Queen's cover caught my attention!

  6. Yay, for once I've actually read the first book to both of these series, lol. I think I'm more excited about Wildcard though!
