Waiting on Wednesday (184)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I've gotten behind these last couple weeks, but I'm gonna try to post these more regularly.

This week I am excited for The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black and Scavenge the Stars by Tara Sim!

The Queen of Nothing is the final book in The Folk of the Air trilogy! I absolutely loved the first two books, The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King! The Wicked King ended on a huge cliffhanger, and I really need to know how this ends. While I ship Cardan and Jude, Cardan is pretty awful, and I want him to be taken down a couple pegs. I'm also curious where the book is going to go, given the snippet revealed awhile back about Taryn and Locke. When the book comes out, I'll likely buy it and not get up until I finish it!


He will be destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne.

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.

Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.

Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.

And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity…

Release: November 19, 2019

I'm really excited, as I just got an ARC of Scavenge the Stars! The book is a gender-swapped fantasy retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo. While I haven't read the book it's based on, I still anticipate enjoying it. The book centers around the character Amaya seeking revenge against the man who ruined her family. True to Tara Sim books, there is a promise of romance. I also want to point out how amazing the cover is, and I really hope we get to see Amaya stab someone with that gorgeous dagger!


When Amaya rescues a mysterious stranger from drowning, she fears her rash actions have earned her a longer sentence on the debtor ship where she’s been held captive for years. Instead, the man she saved offers her unimaginable riches and a new identity, setting Amaya on a perilous course through the coastal city-state of Moray, where old-world opulence and desperate gamblers collide. Amaya wants one thing: revenge against the man who ruined her family and stole the life she once had. But the more entangled she becomes in this game of deception—and as her path intertwines with the son of the man she’s plotting to bring down—the more she uncovers about the truth of her past. And the more she realizes she must trust no one…
