Waiting on Wednesday (179)

"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:

Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine
Release date: July 5, 2016

In Ink and BoneNew York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine introduced a world where knowledge is power, and power corrupts absolutely. Now, she continues the story of those who dare to defy the Great Library—and rewrite history... 
With an iron fist, The Great Library controls the knowledge of the world, ruthlessly stamping out all rebellion, forbidding the personal ownership of books in the name of the greater good.
Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever. His best friend is lost, and Morgan, the girl he loves, is locked away in the Iron Tower and doomed to a life apart.
Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library’s deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London.
But Jess’s home isn't safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon, Jess must choose between his friends, his family, or the Library willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control...

I loved Ink and Bone. It was one of my favorite books of 2015 so I can't wait to get my hands on this sequel!

Katherine of Aragon: The True Queen by Alison Weir
Release date: May 31, 2016

Bestselling author and acclaimed historian Alison Weir takes on what no fiction writer has done before: creating a dramatic six-book series in which each novel covers one of King Henry VIII’s wives. In this captivating opening volume, Weir brings to life the tumultuous tale of Katherine of Aragon, Henry’s first, devoted, and “true” queen.
A princess of Spain, Catalina is only sixteen years old when she sets foot on the shores of England. The youngest daughter of the powerful monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella, Catalina is a coveted prize for a royal marriage—and Arthur, Prince of Wales, and heir to the English throne, has won her hand. But tragedy strikes and Catalina, now Princess Katherine, is betrothed to the future Henry VIII. She must wait for his coming-of-age, an ordeal that tests her resolve, casts doubt on her trusted confidantes, and turns her into a virtual prisoner.
Katherine’s patience is rewarded when she becomes Queen of England. The affection between Katherine and Henry is genuine, but forces beyond her control threaten to rend her marriage, and indeed the nation, apart. Henry has fallen under the spell of Katherine’s maid of honor, Anne Boleyn. Now Katherine must be prepared to fight, to the end if God wills it, for her faith, her legitimacy, and her heart.

I loved Alison Weir's Tudor nonfiction/biographies so I have high hopes for this series of novels.


  1. I really enjoy Alison Weir as well and had no idea she had a new series coming out. I will have to add it to my TBR list. Great pick!

  2. I do have Ink and Bone on my TBR list - I will get around to it!! nice pick!

  3. I havent read ink and bone yet, but i own it and will probably get the sequel so I can read them both! This nonfiction pick looks really good as well. hope you enjoy them both!
    here's my WoW!

  4. I adored Ink and Bone and was so thrilled to get this ARC this week. I can't wait to see what happens next! Great choice and the cover is awesome.

  5. Both books look so tempting...but I am especially fascinated by the idea of a Great Library controlling everything...even though I would be sad about not having personal books...sigh. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  6. Great pick, anything to do with a Great Library has me curious! I'm surprised there haven't been more books set in the Alexandrian library, great concept.

  7. Oh! I'm curious for Paper and Fire as well! I really enjoyed Ink and Bone. :)

  8. ive never read any of the author's book! whatd you recommend me?
