Waiting on Wednesday (102)

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 The Iron Trial by Cassandra Clare and Holly Black (9/9/14):

Description on Goodreads:
From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling authors Holly Black and Cassandra Clare comes a riveting new series that defies what you think you know about the world of magic.

From two bestselling superstars, a dazzling and magical middle-grade collaboration centering on the students of the Magisterium, an academy for those with a propensity toward magic. In this first book, a new student comes to the Magisterium against his will -- is it because he is destined to be a powerful magician, or is the truth more twisted than that? It's a journey that will thrill you, surprise you, and make you wonder about the clear-cut distinction usually made between good and evil.
Why I’m Waiting:
Two authors I love are writing a middle-grade fantasy series together about magic…I’m so in. I like that Cassandra Clare has fun with other writers (like with the Bane Chronicles). I’m interested in seeing how this combination of writing styles turns out with a book series (as compared to short stories), though I’m fairly certain it will be epic. Keep it coming, awesome YA writers. Keep it coming.


  1. Great pick Nori, I'm definitely looking forward to digging into this one as well! I love a good MG fantasy and with these two authors, this one seems quite promising!! Here's hoping it's epic as you say :D

  2. Awesome pick! I haven't heard of this one yet. I have to go check it out!

    Come check out my blog and maybe even hit the follow button? It'd be greatly appreciated!

  3. For a middlegrade book it sure sounds good :D
