Waiting on Wednesday (157)

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 Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine (07/05/16):

Description on Goodreads:
In Ink and Bone, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine introduced a world where knowledge is power, and power corrupts absolutely. Now, she continues the story of those who dare to defy the Great Library—and rewrite history…

With an iron fist, The Great Library controls the knowledge of the world, ruthlessly stamping out all rebellion, forbidding the personal ownership of books in the name of the greater good.

Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever. His best friend is lost, and Morgan, the girl he loves, is locked away in the Iron Tower and doomed to a life apart.

Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library’s deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London.

But Jess’s home isn’t safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon, Jess must choose between his friends, his family, or the Library willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control…
Why I’m Waiting:
Book one is probably one of the most under-rated/not hyped enough YA books I’ve ever read that I think seriously needs more hype. It might have been my favorite book of the year. It was so good, I’ve already convinced 3 coworkers they need to read it (one already has). I cannot get this sequel fast enough. There is so much I need to know. And just the fact that the word, “fire,” is in the title gives me goose bumps. I cannot wait.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I still need to read book one for this series but it is on my tbr shelf :D This is the first time I've seen the cover for the sequel and I like how it matches with the first book but also has it's own thing going on^^ I hope that you'll love this one even more than the first! ♥

  2. I didn't know this had a cover yet! Pretty! I still need to read book one. I love Rachel Caine, so I'll get to it soon. Great pick!
