Waiting on Wednesday (215)

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 Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo (8/29/2017):

Description on Goodreads:
She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
Why I’m Waiting:
There are so many reasons why I’m waiting for this book! I am a huge Wonder Woman fan. Seriously, she is the best. I’ve gone to panels about her at Comic Con, I’ve dressed as her for Halloween. She’s my favorite hero. And I always knew her story would make for a great YA novel. Also, I love Leigh Bardugo. I know this author will give my hero credit. The story sounds like an awesome friendship story too, mixed with Greek mythology. What else does a book need?

  1. Even though I haven't read Bardugo (YET!) I NEED this book. I love comic superheroes and Wonder Woman is all kinds of awesome! I'm such a DC fangirl in any case, this is one NOT to be missed :D
