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?
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.
