Waiting on Wednesday: Ruined

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Ruined (Ruined, #1)Ruined by Amy Tintera

Publication Date: May 3rd, 2015

Publisher: HarperTeen

Goodreads: Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.

But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.

In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.

Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.


That sounds like a lot of revenge and I kind of like it.

Waiting on Wednesday: 3/23/16

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


 

The Star-Touched QueenThe Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: April 26th 2016
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin

Cursed with a horoscope that promises a marriage of Death and Destruction, sixteen-year-old Maya has only earned the scorn and fear of her father’s kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her world is upheaved when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. But when her wedding takes a fatal turn, Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Yet neither roles are what she expected. As Akaran’s queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar’s wife, she finds friendship and warmth.

But Akaran has its own secrets – thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Beneath Akaran’s magic, Maya begins to suspect her life is in danger. When she ignores Amar’s plea for patience, her discoveries put more than new love at risk – it threatens the balance of all realms, human and Otherworldly.

Now, Maya must confront a secret that spans reincarnated lives and fight her way through the dangerous underbelly of the Otherworld if she wants to protect the people she loves.
Inspired by Indian mythology.


I’m seriously so excited for this one. It previously went by the title of The Bride of Dusk and Glass, and I’m happy they changed it because the current one sounds good and looks great on the cover.

The fourth and final installment in the spellbinding series from the irrepressible, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.

Release date: April 26, 2016
Publisher: Scholastic Press

My favorite color is blue and I love that the color scheme for all the books have stayed that way. Of course, it also helps that the female lead’s name is Blue.

March 2: WWW Wednesday

IMG_1384-0It’s hump day! And that means it’s only the middle of the week *sigh* Today’s blog meme is WWW Wednesday which is hosted by Sam on Taking on a World of Words and it’ll serve as an update and what I just read, am reading, and will read.

This was an amazing series from start to finish!!!
Note: Can someone tell me why the author name changed from S.U. Pacat to C.S. Pacat? Is it because S.U. is a pen name for the online serial which changed to C.S. for paper publishing?

What to Read Next:

This is a good start to March and I’m excited to read more this month! The school workload this semester hasn’t been too heavy but the 24 hours of class time and 10 hours of work per week is grueling and taxing on my mental focus. I almost regret overloading on credits but I’m thankful that I can attend my classes in relatively good health. (I just got over a cold so knock on wood!)

I’ll be posting my review of The Captive Prince trilogy in the next few days. The reviews I read on here and Goodreads were spot-on; this is a gem that deserves all the recognition and rise from an online serial to Penguin publishing.
