Waiting on Wednesday (157)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week, I'm waiting on:

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine
Release date: July 7, 2015

In an exhilarating new series, New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine rewrites history, creating a dangerous world where the Great Library of Alexandria has survived the test of time.…
Ruthless and supremely powerful, the Great Library is now a presence in every major city, governing the flow of knowledge to the masses. Alchemy allows the Library to deliver the content of the greatest works of history instantly—but the personal ownership of books is expressly forbidden.
Jess Brightwell believes in the value of the Library, but the majority of his knowledge comes from illegal books obtained by his family, who are involved in the thriving black market. Jess has been sent to be his family’s spy, but his loyalties are tested in the final months of his training to enter the Library’s service.

I just found out about this book yesterday when several people had it listed in their top ten 2015 upcoming releases. As a librarian I love the idea of the Great Library of Alexandria still existing in modern times and being the major source of disseminating information. If people couldn't own books, I bet libraries would see an increase in circulation and librarians would be more valued! Of course it would be really sad at the same time. I am really curious about this series and its premise though.


  1. I love the morganville vampires so cannot wait for this one.

  2. Yes! I am so super curious about this book. I read the first few books in the Morganville Vampire series, and I really enjoyed them. I am looking forward to seeing what she has come up with now. :) Great pick, Christina!

  3. I love premise for this book as well, Christina. The Great Library of Alexandria - yes, please! Great pick and thankfully we don't have to wait too long for publication.

  4. I like the sound of this one too. Wouldn't that be something if that great library was still available today? Putting this one on my list.

  5. I am also super excited for this book! I love books about books! :)

  6. Oh this one wasn't on my radar Christina but i'm definitely interested! I'm going to keep an eye out when it comes out! Thanks for your pick this week!

  7. Great pick! I am looking forward to this one as well. I'm hoping I like it more than The Morganville Vampires series because I didn't much enjoy that!
