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.
