Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which shines a light on eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.
This week my pick is;
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Release Date: 27th September 2016
Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn’t think they’d survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they’re right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and left crippled by the kidnapping of a valuable team member, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz’s cunning and test the team’s fragile loyalties. A war will be waged on the city’s dark and twisting streets―a battle for revenge and redemption that will decide the fate of magic in the Grisha world.
Everything Leigh Bardugo has written I have loved, and honestly I thought Six of Crows was the best of the lot. After the way it ended Crooked Kingdom is one of my most anticipated releases for this year. So what does everyone think; is Crooked Kingdom a must on anyone else’s to-read list or are there any other books that you can’t wait for to be released?
