Happy Hump Day! You all know what today means—a new Can’t Wait Wednesday post! Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to bring light to the books we are excited to read. Usually, they’re upcoming releases. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, created by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Not gonna lie, Wicked Saints was one of my most anticipated reads this year, and receiving it from the publisher made me feel like I was on top of the world. I haven’t made it a secret that I’m still fuming over the ending of the Grisha trilogy, and this book comes in where the badass female character is promised to end up with morally grey sort-of-villain? I was sold. I knew it would blow my mind…. but once I started, I just wanted it to end.
Well, that’s another month done. Happy March, everyone! This time around, I’m starting with a list of new releases that I’m really looking forward to reading. February was great with these as well, with books like A Curse So Dark…
I’ll admit, I had my initial doubts about this just because it looked so cliche, but the synopsis completely won me over. I was able to finish Flipping the Script in one go! That’s definitely not a common feat for a book I’m reading, but there’s just something about Danice’s writing that was so addicting. It’s also a Filipino novel written and set in Manila, and seeing so many references to my daily life were so refreshing!
We Hunt the Flame is an incredible book. I’m an avid lover of fantasy novels, but very rarely do I find one with such vivid descriptions of world-building and unbelievable attention to detail! Everything in the novel is well-thought out—the architecture, characters, language, food, traditions, romance, angst, fluff….everything. It’s pretty hard to wrap my head around the fact that this is a debut novel because it was just so fucking good.
