Waiting on Wednesday
**Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.**


The Winner’s Kiss

Author: Marie Rutkoski
Series: The Winner’s Trilogy, #3
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Publication Date: March 29 2016


War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasn’t forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she did for him.At least, that’s what he thinks.

In the frozen north, Kestrel is a prisoner in a brutal work camp. As she searches desperately for a way to escape, she wishes Arin could know what she sacrificed for him. She wishes she could make the empire pay for what they’ve done to her.

But no one gets what they want just by wishing.

As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover that the world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and they are caught in between. With so much to lose, can anybody really win?


Why am I waiting…

The ever so lovely Giselle from Book Nerd Canada was kind enough to give me her ARC of The Winner’s Crime which came out on March 3 2015. I foolishly read it in January 2015 thinking I would be perfectly fine. Silly rabbit.

I was an emotional MESS!!!! And the wait for this book felt ten times longer than usual. Of course there was also the whole cover change drama for the last book. THANK GOD the publishing company came to their senses and changed the plan for the hardcover release 🙂

I’m not sure if I’m emotionally ready for this book, I’m not ready to say goodbye, and I’m not ready for the possible FEELS this will bring. Sigh. ❤

What are you waiting on this week?!
Please feel free to leave me links to your WoW below!

Until next time bibliophiles,
