Waiting on Wednesday / Can’t Wait Wednesday


Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, and my version is a mix of what I’m waiting to read, whether it’s a new release that is not out yet, or an older book on my TBR shelf, which I really want to read but haven’t got around to yet.

Here’s my ‘Can’t wait to read’, book for this week:

I know I am late to the party…  Can you guess what it is yet? This is one of those books that everyone else has read – except me – and I want to read it so much. But at first I was a little bit put off by the mixed reviews, so didn’t dive into it straight away. Have you read this? What did you think?


Guess what it is yet?

Book details 


The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

“Lush, dangerous, a dark jewel of a book . . . intoxicating” – Leigh Bardugo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows

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.

One terrible morning, Jude and her sisters see their parents murdered in front of them. The terrifying assassin abducts all three girls to the world of Faerie, where Jude is installed in the royal court but mocked and tormented by the Faerie royalty for being mortal.

As Jude grows older, she realises that she will need to take part in the dangerous deceptions of the fey to ever truly belong.

But the stairway to power is fraught with shadows and betrayal. And looming over all is the infuriating, arrogant and charismatic Prince Cardan . . .

Enter the dramatic and thrilling world of the Folk of the Air, brimful of magic and romance from New York Times bestselling author Holly Black.

  1. I have not read The Cruel Prince and really want to because I think I might want to do that pre-order for The Wicked King! I think it’s a great pick and one I should do something about!


    1. Oh I am not alone then! Yes, The Wicked King may just be my next week’s WOW, if I like this one!

  2. I haven’t read this one either and I have no idea why. It sounds awesome and like something I’d completely love. Thanks for reminding me about it! Happy reading! 🙂

  3. I’ve read this and while I didn’t love it as much as everyone else, I am curious about book 2. Also, I don’t have the best luck with fairy books so I’m sure that had something to do with it.

    1. Well, you were not alone with your views! Many loved the hype, (and there was quite a lot around), yet a few were disappointed. I cannot wait to see which way I’m going to turn lol
