Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore.

Eight years after Graceling, Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck’s reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle—disguised and alone—to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past. Two thieves, who only steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck’s reign. And one of them, with an extreme skill called a Grace that he hasn’t yet identified, holds a key to her heart. (Summary from Goodreads)

Exceptional right? It's a little early to be posting this, but I love Graceling and Fire and Kristin Cashore. I can't contain myself! Bitterblue comes out May 1st.

  7. I'm soooo excited for this one! It's been a long wait, but I think it will be worth it.

    I didn't read Fire, because I heard it had different characters from Graceling - what a mistake! It's just as good, but in a totally different way.
