Waiting on Wednesday (36)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.

This week, I am waiting on Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (6/4/13):

Description on Goodreads:
Darkness never dies.

Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.
So, I am so beyond ready for this book! I absolutely loved book 1. It was one of my top three favorite books of 2012. I love that this cover matches the first book’s cover really well. I also love where the story is heading, though I kind of wish I got a little bit more description in that description…I’m pretty sure I would end up buying this one though even if there was no description –that is how much I loved the first one.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Shadow and Bone was also in my top three favorites of last year! I also love the whole matching cover thing, and that I might actually like this cover better. I can't wait to see what happens with Alina, Mal, and of course, The Darkling. ;)

    Lovely pick! <3
