Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases eagerly awaited upcoming titles.

Seraphina took the literary world by storm with 8 starred reviews and numerous “Best of” lists. At last, her eagerly awaited sequel has arrived—and with it comes an epic battle between humans and dragons.

The kingdom of Goredd: a world where humans and dragons share life with an uneasy balance, and those few who are both human and dragon must hide the truth. Seraphina is one of these, part girl, part dragon, who is reluctantly drawn into the politics of her world. When war breaks out between the dragons and humans, she must travel the lands to find those like herself—for she has an inexplicable connection to all of them, and together they will be able to fight the dragons in powerful, magical ways.

As Seraphina gathers this motley crew, she is pursued by humans who want to stop her. But the most terrifying is another half dragon, who can creep into people’s minds and take them over. Until now, Seraphina has kept her mind safe from intruders, but that also means she’s held back her own gift. It is time to make a choice: Cling to the safety of her old life, or embrace a powerful new destiny?

Seraphina was one of my favourite reads of last year. It took me by surprise and completely blew me away with its plot and host of characters. I've already devoured the novella, The Audition, and can't wait to get my hands on the next instalment of this series. If you haven't managed to pick Seraphina up yet, then make sure to before Shadow Scales release. You absolutely have to read the novella too. The novella gave even greater insight into the characters and made me care for some of the characters even more that I had from the book itself!


  1. I still haven't read Seraphina yet, even if it is on my Kindle library! I must get to it soon cause book two is coming and dragons!!

  2. I have been meaning to read Seraphina for some time but with this sequel coming out, I think I'm going to have to get on it! Lovely pick!

    Here's my WoW :)

  3. I've read some decent reviews for both Dorothy Must Die and Stormdancer. I'd say, if you're still kind of interested, pick 'em up and try the first chapter. If you like it, keep going; if not, no harm, no foul. :)

    As for Game of Thrones, I don't love the TV series, but I have been considering starting the series...maybe, someday. At this point, with how long the author takes between books, we might as well wait til it reaches completion, right? :)

  4. I'm planning on reading Dorothy Must Die. It looks interesting!

  5. Seraphina is on my TBR list! I need to get on that before the sequel comes out!

    here is my WoW post: http://eatupmyfreetime.wordpress.com/2014/08/13/waiting-on-wednesday-aug-13/

  6. Yes! I totally can't wait for the next book in this series! I agree the first one was amazing, and I can only foresee good things with this next book in the series. Thanks for sharing!

    My WoW.

  7. I only read Shatter me from this list and that series is one of my favorites.. and most of these books are on my tbr list but I never seem to have time for them.

    I love fantasy novels, but I haven't gotten to read Seraphina yet. It sounds like I should add it to my list. Great pick!

    My WoW

  9. I got problems reading A game of throne too. I'm afraid of loving it because those books are very expensive in my country.
