Can't Wait Wednesday

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about what we have yet to read. Generally they are books that have yet to be released, but don't have to be. It is based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous at Breaking the Spine


Release Date: September 26, 2017
Publisher: Scribner
Author: Stephen King & Owen King
Genre: Horror
Pages: 720

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place. The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied, or is she a demon who must be slain? Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beauties is wildly provocative and gloriously absorbing.






 Why I'm Waiting: I love Stephen King! It sounds amazing and a reason to sleep with the light ons!

From the outside, the Cane family looks like they have it all. A successful military father, a loving mother and five beautiful teenage daughters. But on the inside, life isn't quite so idyllic: the Cane sisters can barely stand each other, their father is always away, and their neglectful mother struggles with addiction and depression. 

When their youngest and most beloved sister, Rose, dies in a tragic accident, Mona Cane and her sisters are devastated. And when she is brought back from the dead, they are relieved. But soon they discover that Rose must eat human flesh to survive, and when their mother abandons them, the sisters will find out just how far they'll go to keep their family together. 






Why I'm Waiting: This sounds right up my alley. It's going to be on top of my Fall TBR!

And the Winner is!

The votes have been counted and the poll has been locked! I've pulled the book from myself and I'm waiting for August 6th to arrive. My plan is to give up Netflix for a week so I can focus on reading this week, and making sure to bring it to work to read during lunch break. So who won? By a landslide:

The Song of Achilles
By: Madeline Miller
378 pages

The legend begins...

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the kingdom of Phthia to be raised in the shadow of King Peleus and his golden son, Achilles. “The best of all the Greeks”—strong, beautiful, and the child of a goddess—Achilles is everything the shamed Patroclus is not. Yet despite their differences, the boys become steadfast companions. Their bond deepens as they grow into young men and become skilled in the arts of war and medicine—much to the displeasure and the fury of Achilles’ mother, Thetis, a cruel sea goddess with a hatred of mortals.

Can't wait to see what everyone else is reading tomorrow! Hope it's a wonderful for week full of reading and the books are everything you thought they'd be! You can keep up with my progress here!

Cover Release - Obsidio

I love every single cover attached to this series. They are amazing, and so is this series. I am not at all emotionally prepared for whatever is between the covers of this book. Whatever it is will have me on the edge of my sit just like every other book, but the cover has me excited for March to get here. To finally see all four of those characters together. And of course, another adventure with AIDEN!


Release Date: March 13, 2018
Publisher: Knopf Books
Author: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Series: The Illuminae Files #3

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship, Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza—but who knows what they'll find seven months after the invasion? 

Meanwhile, Kady's cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza's ragtag underground resistance. When Rhys—an old flame from Asha's past—reappears on Kerenza, the two find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict. 

With time running out, a final battle will be waged on land and in space, heros will fall, and hearts will be broken.

I've been in love with series since the first book! I'm so excited, and completely terrified, of that last book in this series. Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff have created an amazing story, world, and some kickass characters! I love AIDEN! Even if he's a whole lot broken. I totally recommend this to anyone who loves sci-fi fans!
