Wishlist Wednesday – 6/9/17

Wishlist Wednesday is a meme where you post about one book each week that has been on your wishlist for sometime, a book that you are excited to buy, to read, etc. This is a post that is hosted by Pen to Paper. 

This is my first time making a Wishlist Wednesday post and I’m doing it today because I’m feeling inspired to do so and because I’m pretty excited and wanted to share that excitement with others. I have had a book on my Amazon Wishlist and have pre-ordered it such a long time and I’m finally going to be having it delivered to me tomorrow!!! What is this book?. Let’s get into it…

Godsgrave.jpg Godsgrave (#2) – Jay Kristoff

A ruthless young assassin continues her journey for revenge in this new epic fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Jay Kristoff.

Assassin Mia Corvere has found her place among the Blades of Our Lady of Blessed Murder, but many in the Red Church ministry think she’s far from earned it. Plying her bloody trade in a backwater of the Republic, she’s no closer to ending Consul Scaeva and Cardinal Duomo, or avenging her familia. And after a deadly confrontation with an old enemy, Mia begins to suspect the motives of the Red Church itself.

When it’s announced that Scaeva and Duomo will be making a rare public appearance at the conclusion of the grand games in Godsgrave, Mia defies the Church and sells herself to a gladiatorial collegium for a chance to finally end them. Upon the sands of the arena, Mia finds new allies, bitter rivals, and more questions about her strange affinity for the shadows. But as conspiracies unfold within the collegium walls, and the body count rises, Mia will be forced to choose between loyalty and revenge, and uncover a secret that could change the very face of her world.

Set in the world of Nevernight, which Publishers Weekly called “absorbing in its complexity and bold in its bloodiness,” Godsgrave will continue to thrill and satisfy fantasy fans everywhere.

This is the sequel to Nevernight by Jay Kristoff and I have been waiting for this sequel since I finished reading book one. The way that book ended. Finally, it will be delivered tomorrow and I will be able to cross it of my wishlist and soon it will be crossed off my TBR list as well. This is one I can’t wait to see arrive in the mail, count down the minutes, (tomorrow definitely is going to drag), then to finally hold it in my hands and then to read it. Wish me some patience please!

what-alice-knew

What Alice Knew – T.A. Cotterell

Page 60:
“It wasn’t his answer that bugged me but his voice, which sounded as if there was a kidnapper pointing a gun at his head. I suddenly understood that what I’d taken for evasiveness was helplessness, or hopelessness, the sound of a man falling apart.”

Goodreads Description:
“Alice has a perfect life – a great job, happy kids, a wonderful husband. Until he goes missing one night; she receives a suspicious phone call; things don’t quite add up.

Alice needs to know what’s going on. But when she uncovers the truth she faces a brutal choice. And how can she be sure it is the truth?

Sometimes it’s better not to know.”

glass-sword

Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2) – Victoria Aveyard

Page 40: “In her silence, I realize the rest of the compartment has gone quiet. Even the injured stifle their pain to watch the lightning girl challenge their captain.”

Goodreads Description:

“The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control. The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors. But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?”

“Ron opened his mouth to speak, but no words came out. Instead he gave an almighty belch and several slugs dribbled out of his mouth onto his lap.”
