THANK GOODNESS IT IS WEDNESDAY. I feel like this week is simultaneously going to fast and not fast enough. Who else is ready for Friday afternoon to get here?
So, as you probably already know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a light on an eagerly anticipated read. This week I am going with a book of one of my favorite authors because this week she had a COVER REVEAL. And I love cover reveals. I want this book more than ever. My pick this week is:
The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: September 26, 2017
Because #GRISHAVERSE. That’s really the only reason you need.
Blurb for those who remain unconvinced (which you shouldn’t be if you have ever read the Grisha trilogy, Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom):
Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid’s voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy’s bidding but only for a terrible price.
Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.
Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.
This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.
If anyone is looking for me on September 26th, I’ll be with this book.
