Waiting on Wednesday (177)

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 Aerie by Maria Dahvana Headley (10/4/16):

Description on Goodreads:
Where is home when you were born in the stars?

Aza Ray is back on earth. Her boyfriend Jason is overjoyed. Her family is healed. She’s living a normal life, or as normal as it can be if you’ve spent the past year dying, waking up on a sky ship, and discovering that your song can change the world.

As in, not normal. Part of Aza still yearns for the clouds, no matter how much she loves the people on the ground.

When Jason’s paranoia over Aza’s safety causes him to make a terrible mistake, Aza finds herself a fugitive in Magonia, tasked with opposing her radical, bloodthirsty, recently-escaped mother, Zal Quel, and her singing partner Dai. She must travel to the edge of the world in search of a legendary weapon, The Flock, in a journey through fire and identity that will transform her forever.

In this stunning sequel to the critically acclaimed Magonia, one girl must make an impossible choice between two families, two homes—and two versions of herself.
Why I’m Waiting:
Yes! I’m so ready for this book to come out. I absolutely adored the first book. It surprised me in so many good and interesting ways. This new one sounds like it could eve be better than the first one. I love that cover is consistent with book 1 too.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I still need to crack open my copy of Magonia Nori! I didn't even know the sequel was coming out (oops!) I must catch up soon so I can wait for this one right along with you :D

  2. Never read this series but what a beautiful cover. I may have to check the series out based on that alone. Thanks for sharing it and I hope you love it as much as you did the first.
