Waiting on Wednesday: Loveless

Feature

Waiting on Wednesday was originally created by Jill @Breaking The Spine. This is a weekly feature that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


Alice OsemanLoveless by Alice Oseman

Publication date: 9. July 2020

Summary:

It was all sinking in. I’d never had a crush on anyone. No boys, no girls, not a single person I had ever met. What did that mean?

Georgia has never been in love, never kissed anyone, never even had a crush – but as a fanfic-obsessed romantic she’s sure she’ll find her person one day.

As she starts university with her best friends, Pip and Jason, in a whole new town far from home, Georgia’s ready to find romance, and with her outgoing roommate on her side and a place in the Shakespeare Society, her ‘teenage dream’ is in sight.

But when her romance plan wreaks havoc amongst her friends, Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her. With new terms thrown at her – asexual, aromantic – Georgia is more uncertain about her feelings than ever.

Is she destined to remain loveless? Or has she been looking for the wrong thing all along?


Alice Oseman is a very popular author and I have heard many amazing things about her books from people everywhere. Yet I haven’t read anything by her yet. That is mostly due to the fact that she writes contemporary and that is not a genre that I gravitate towards. So why am I looking forward to Loveless coming out?

I’m very exited to read about a main character that is on the aro-ace spectrum! I identify as both asexual and aromatic (in case you weren’t aware of that), so obviously I’m looking forward to the representation in this book. I just have a feeling that this book is going to be amazing! I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have a wonderful day!

Waiting on Wednesday: Star Daughter

Feature

Waiting on Wednesday was originally created by Jill @Breaking The Spine. This is a weekly feature that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


Star DaughterStar Daughter by Shveta Thakrar

Publication date: 11. August 2020

Summary:

The daughter of a star and a mortal, Sheetal is used to keeping secrets. Pretending to be “normal.” But when an accidental flare of her starfire puts her human father in the hospital, Sheetal needs a full star’s help to heal him. A star like her mother, who returned to the sky long ago.

Sheetal’s quest to save her father will take her to a celestial court of shining wonders and dark shadows, where she must take the stage as her family’s champion in a competition to decide the next ruling house of the heavens–and win, or risk never returning to Earth at all.

Brimming with celestial intrigue, this sparkling YA debut is perfect for fans of Roshani Chokshi and Laini Taylor.


Yes, what first drew me to this book was the cover. The cover for Star Daughter is simply stunning! I just love the character art and the black background with golden elements. This is probably one of the most beautiful covers that I have ever seen.

With that being said, the summary for this book sounds amazing as well – which is why I decided to make a Waiting on Wednesday post for it. As you may know, I adore books about mythology and Star Daughter has elements oh Hindu mythology. That combined wit the fact that it’s said to be perfect for fans of Roshani Chokshi (whose books I have adored) makes me even more exited for it! I seriously can’t wait for Star Daughter to come out!

Waiting on Wednesday: A Song Below Water

Yes, I’m aware it’s not actually Wednesday. I wanted to post this yesterday evening, but my internet wasn’t working. I was very frustrated because of it last night and then I decided I still want to post this Waiting on Wednesday in March, so here we are. I don’t think anybody really cares that this isn’t posted on an actual Wednesday, but I still wanted to acknowledge it. Now onto the actual post!


Feature

A Song Below WaterA Song Below Water by Bethany C. Morrow

Publication date: 2. June 2020

Summary:

Tavia is already at odds with the world, forced to keep her siren identity under wraps in a society that wants to keep her kind under lock and key. Nevermind she’s also stuck in Portland, Oregon, a city with only a handful of black folk and even fewer of those with magical powers. At least she has her bestie Effie by her side as they tackle high school drama, family secrets, and unrequited crushes.

But everything changes in the aftermath of a siren murder trial that rocks the nation; the girls’ favourite Internet fashion icon reveals she’s also a siren, and the news rips through their community. Tensions escalate when Effie starts being haunted by demons from her past, and Tavia accidentally lets out her magical voice during a police stop. No secret seems safe anymore—soon Portland won’t be either.


A Song Below Water sounds like such a fantastic book! I haven’t read any siren books ever (or at least I can’t remember reading any books about them), which makes me even more exited to read this book! The fact that there is going to be a female friendship in A Song Below Water makes me even more exited to read it. The cover is obviously gorgeous as well! This is also an own-voices book for the black representation.

I actually received an ARC copy of A Song Below Water from NetGalley recently and I was so exited about it. I seriously can’t wait to read this book soon!

Waiting on Wednesday: Forest of Souls

Feature

Waiting on Wednesday was originally created by Jill @Breaking The Spine. This is a weekly feature that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


Forest of SoulsForest of Souls (Shamanborn #1) by Lori M. Lee

Publication date: 23. June 2020

Summary:

Sirscha Ashwyn comes from nothing, but she’s intent on becoming something. After years of training to become the queen’s next royal spy, her plans are derailed when shamans attack and kill her best friend Saengo.

And then Sirscha, somehow, restores Saengo to life.

Unveiled as the first soulguide in living memory, Sirscha is summoned to the domain of the Spider King. For centuries, he has used his influence over the Dead Wood—an ancient forest possessed by souls—to enforce peace between the kingdoms. Now, with the trees growing wild and untamed, only a soulguide can restrain them. As war looms, Sirscha must master her newly awakened abilities before the trees shatter the brittle peace, or worse, claim Saengo, the friend she would die for.


This book sounds so perfect for me, I can’t even describe it. A main character who is training to be a spy, some type of death magic, magical dark woods and strong female friendship. All those elements on their own have the potential to make me love a book. Forest of Souls combines all those elements and this could be a perfect book for me.

You can obviously see why I’m exited for Forest of Souls. This cover for it is completely stunning! I adore illustrated covers and the colouring on this one is gorgeous. I seriously can’t wait for this book to come out!

Waiting on Wednesday: Burn

Feature

Waiting on Wednesday was originally created by Jill @Breaking The Spine. This is a weekly feature that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


50175239._SX318_SY475_Burn by Patrick Ness

Publication date: 7. May 2020

Summary:

Sarah Dewhurst and her father, outcasts in their little town of Frome, Washington, are forced to hire a dragon to work their farm, something only the poorest of the poor ever have to resort to.

The dragon, Kazimir, has more to him than meets the eye, though. Sarah can’t help but be curious about him, an animal who supposedly doesn’t have a soul, but who is seemingly intent on keeping her safe.

Because the dragon knows something she doesn’t. He has arrived at the farm with a prophecy on his mind. A prophecy that involves a deadly assassin, a cult of dragon worshippers, two FBI agents in hot pursuit—and somehow, Sarah Dewhurst herself.


In case you didn’t know, Patrick Ness is one of my favourite authors. I have very much enjoyed all of his books, that I have read so far. When I found out that he has a new book coming out I immediately wanted to read it, no matter what it was about. (As I do want to read all of his published work.)

Another fact that you might know about me is that I love dragons. They are my favourite mythical creature. Whenever I see a book about dragons I’m immediately intrigued, it wasn’t any different with Burn. Just thinking of the combination of Patrick Ness’ writing and dragons has me sooo exited! This book can’t come out soon enough!

Waiting on Wednesday: Wicked As You Wish

Feature

Waiting on Wednesday was originally created by Jill @Breaking The Spine. This is a weekly feature that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


Rin ChupecoWicked As You Wish (A Hundred Names for Magic #1) by Rin Chupeco

Publication date: 3. March 2020

Summary:

Tala Warnock has little use for magic – as a descendant of Maria Makiling, the legendary Filipina heroine, she negates spells, often by accident. But her family’s old ties to the country of Avalon (frozen, bespelled, and unreachable for almost 12 years) soon finds them guarding its last prince from those who would use his kingdom’s magic for insidious ends.

And with the rise of dangerous spelltech in the Royal States of America; the appearance of the firebird, Avalon’s deadliest weapon, at her doorstep; and the re-emergence of the Snow Queen, powerful but long thought dead, who wants nothing more than to take the firebird’s magic for her own – Tala’s life is about to get even more complicated


I have never read anything by Rin Chupeco so far, but many of her books intrigue me. There is also the fact that I know a lot of people who completely adore her books, which motivates me even more to read something by her. (Rin Chupeco has been on my radar for the longest time, it’s kind of embarrassing that I haven’t read anything by her yet.)

Wicked As You Wish is her newest book that is coming out in March. This book sounds so interesting! I also find parts of the summary for it to be confusing, but that just intrigues me more to read it. (Hopefully the actual story won’t be confusing.) The cover for Wicked As You Wish is gorgeous as well. I love the colours and the way the illustrations are woven into the font. Anyway, I can’t wait to get my hands on this book!

Waiting on Wednesday: Belle Révolte

Feature

Waiting on Wednesday was originally created by Jill @Breaking The Spine. This is a weekly feature that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.


Linsey MillerBelle Révolte by Linsey Miller

Publication date: 1. February 2020

Summary:

Emilie des Marais is more at home holding scalpels than embroidery needles and is desperate to escape her noble roots to serve her country as a physician. But society dictates a noble lady cannot perform such gruesome work.

Annette Boucher, overlooked and overworked by her family, wants more from life than her humble beginnings and is desperate to be trained in magic. So when a strange noble girl offers Annette the chance of a lifetime, she accepts.

Emilie and Annette swap lives—Annette attends finishing school as a noble lady to be trained in the ways of divination, while Emilie enrolls to be a physician’s assistant, using her natural magical talent to save lives.

But when their nation instigates a frivolous war, Emilie and Annette must work together to help the rebellion end a war that is based on lies.


Belle Révolte is a book that I just recently found out about, and by that I mean just a few days ago. (I stumbled upon it from someones most anticipated 2020 releases post!) The cover immediately grabbed my attention and as soon as I read the summary I was hooked! I knew that I needed this book in my life.

Why wouldn’t I want a book about magic and science, women following their dreams and (probably) kicking ass? I have also heard that this book contains a sapphic romance, which makes me even more exited to read it. Basically everything about this book intrigues me and I can’t wait for it to come out!

Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have a wonderful day!
