Can't Wait Wednesday, June 20th

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released.

I think right now, at least 80% of the books on my Amazon wish list are not released yet. This is frustrating because I really want to read all of them now. I'm looking forward to all of them but I've picked two to spotlight here.

Title: Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
Release date: October 2018

Captured by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin is trapped inside an iron box in a secret location, with seemingly no hope for escape. As she endures months of torture, her friends scatter to different fates. Without Aelin to protect them, soldier Aedion and shapeshifter Lysandra need to defend their homeland at all costs. Also left to forge their own paths in order to change history are Chaol, the witch Manon, and the golden boy Dorian-while Aelin's mate, the fae male Rowan, searches the world over for his lost love.

As Aelin gathers the strength to save herself and fight the ultimate battle of her life, all of their destinies hang in the balance. Some ties will bond even tighter together, others will be severed forever, and mysteries will be revealed in this action-packed, heart wrenching series finale.


Title: A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs
Release Date: October 2018

Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him, and doing their best to blend in. But carefree days of beach visits and normalling lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery—a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe.

Clues to Abe’s double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge, secrets long hidden in plain sight. And Jacob begins to learn about the dangerous legacy he has inherited—truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop.

Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom—a world with few ymbrynes, or rules—that none of them understand. New wonders, and dangers, await in this brilliant next chapter for Miss Peregrine’s peculiar children.

What are you waiting for?


  1. I haven't read the Throne of Glass series yet, but Kingdom of Ash sounds amazing! Great picks! :)

  2. Nice picks. Hope you have some good reads to get you through the wait for these two.

  3. Nice! Sadly never got into ToG but I hope this finale is everything you're hoping for!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  4. Ooh another Miss Peregrine's- I still haven't read the first book yet!

  5. These are two authors I have heard great things about, but have yet to try. I really want to give Ransom Riggs's series a try especially. I hope you are able to get your hands on these soon. Enjoy!

  6. This reminds me that I still need to start the Throne of Glass series. I loved ACOTAR but haven't tried that one yet.

  7. I'm so excited for Kingdom and Ash and to see how it all ends too!

  8. I have not yet fallen down the Sarah J Maas rabbit hole -- and I might never catch up given how quickly she seems to be w riting!

  9. Ohh both great CWW picks I didn't read the synopsis of these books because I do want to read both series and I didn't want to spoil myself by reading the synopsis. But I hope you enjoy both of these books when you get the chance to read them Laura! Thank you so much for stopping by my CWW post a couple of weeks ago.
