Waiting on Wednesday (240)

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 Cruel Prince by Holly Black (1/2/2018):

Description from Goodreads:
Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
Why I’m Waiting;
This book sounds awesome. It sounds like a dark faerie story mixed with a healthy dose of revenge, politics, family, and possibly romance. I love Holly Black and I seriously loved the last book she wrote about the world of faerie. She knows how to write awesome characters and beautiful, yet dark worlds. I cannot wait to read this one (though the cover is kind of boring).
What are you waiting on this week?
