Waiting on Wednesday (187)

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 Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth (1/17/17):

Description on Goodreads:
On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not — their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power — something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.

Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuve, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive — no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive — or to destroy one another.
Why I’m Waiting:
So, I know a lot of people are probably going to list this book this week, but I couldn’t help it. As soon as I saw the cover release this week, I knew I’d be posting about it here. I’m so beyond ready for another Veronica Roth book. It’s about time. It has been so long since Allegiant came out. I still need to see that movie…But I loved the books. I was one of the few (it seems) who even loved the end to the series. I know Roth can write suspense and action. I’m ready for more of that please.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Oh heck yes!! I am so pumped for more Veronica Roth, and this looks like it is going to be amazing, and even better than Divergent, if that is possible :)

  2. This is a new one for me but it sounds intense! I hope you love it Nori :)
