Thought I would join the bandwagon and join the waiting for Wednesday meme thingeybob.
where did it come from?
I think the aim is to share with your readers books that are you are waiting for; hence the title. I am not sure that I will be doing this every Wednesday, but I will when I have books to show you!
From my understanding, it is books that are not yet published, so here are two books that I am most defiantly waiting for –
BOOK THREE OF THE AWAKENED SERIES
This is what I call a Marmite book / series, you either hate it or you love it and I am most defiantly in the LOVE IT camp, it is escapism and it is takes you to the heady perfumes and romanticism of Ancient Egypt, I really do not care what other people say, these books have given me some some really good feels and I AM PUMPED that this book will be in my hot sweaty hands very soon!
some blurb for you –
After surviving her
otherworldly adventure, Lily wakes up on her nana’s farm having
forgotten everything. Her sun prince, her travels to Egypt, and her
journey to the Afterlife are all distant memories.
But Lily is
not the girl she once was. Her body is now part human, part lion, and
part fairy. And if that isn’t bad enough, she must now harness this
power of three and become Wasret: a goddess destined to defeat the evil
god Seth once and for all.
With the help of her old friend Dr.
Hassan, Lily departs on her final voyage through the cosmos and across
the plains of Egypt. On the journey, she will transform into the being
she is destined to become. ( goodreads)
And the cover is just so PRETTY!
THE LAST TUDOR by PHILIPPA GREGORY
I have loved reading books by this author for so many years, I was totally captivated by her novel ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ and from there on in, I became a Gregory Tudor fan.
This tales the tale of the poor tragic nine day queen, that didn’t want the crown in the first place and I am so looking forward to and hoping, that this will have all the usual Gregory flair. It is most likely that I will get the audio version too:)
some blurb for you-
‘How long do I have?’ I force a laugh.
long,’ he says very quietly. ‘They have confirmed your sentence of
death. You are to be beheaded tomorrow. We don’t have long at all.’
Jane Grey was Queen of England for nine days. Using her position as
cousin to the deceased king, her father and his conspirators put her on
the throne ahead of the king’s half-sister Mary, who quickly mustered an
army, claimed her crown and locked Jane in the Tower. When Jane refused
to betray her Protestant faith, Mary sent her to the executioner’s
block. There Jane turned her father’s greedy, failed grab for power into
her own brave and tragic martyrdom.(amazon)
Both – as far as I know- are being released on the same day 8/8/17 so lucky me, both book with one order…woop woop!
