Waiting on Wednesday: Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh


My TBR list is always growing and I thought it would be fun to share my anticipation for those books with all of you. This is not my own original meme; it belongs to Breaking the Spine. It specifically spotlights upcoming releases. As it implies in the title, I'll be posting this meme on Wednesdays. Please feel free to comment and let me know what books you guys are waiting on as well!


Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh
Publication Date: June 14, 2016
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pre-order it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository |
The only life seventeen-year-old Kol knows is hunting at the foot of the Great Ice with his brothers. But food is becoming scarce, and without another clan to align with, Kol, his family, and their entire group are facing an uncertain future.

Traveling from the south, Mya and her family arrive at Kol’s camp with a trail of hurt and loss behind them, and hope for a new beginning. When Kol meets Mya, her strength, independence, and beauty instantly captivate him, igniting a desire for much more than survival.


Then on a hunt, Kol makes a grave mistake that jeopardizes the relationship that he and Mya have only just started to build. Mya was guarded to begin with—and for good reason—but no apology or gesture is enough for her to forgive him. Soon after, another clan arrives on their shores. And when Mya spots Lo, a daughter of this new clan, her anger intensifies, adding to the already simmering tension between families. After befriending Lo, Kol learns of a dark history between Lo and Mya that is rooted in the tangle of their pasts.


When violence erupts, Kol is forced to choose between fighting alongside Mya or trusting Lo’s claims. And when things quickly turn deadly, it becomes clear that this was a war that one of them had been planning all along.

This is probably one of the most tense love-triangles I've ever seen in a synopsis. I'm really curious about what Lo and Mya have against one another because it seems like it's going to be a very intricate and twisted story—which I love! 

Julie Eshbaugh used to have trouble staying in one spot, having lived in places as varied as Salt Lake City, Utah; New York City; and Paris, France. She eventually returned home to the Philadelphia area, where she now lives in the house she grew up in with her husband, son, and dog. Early on, Julie focused her artistic energies on filmmaking and online video. She made two short films and spent several years producing a web series for teens which became an early YouTube hit and received several honors from the Webbie Awards. Julie's debut young adult novel, Ivory and Bone, will be published by HarperCollins in 2016.

  3. Whoa the love-drama sounds interesting if played well. I want death serious reasons of hatred or I'll be disappointed... I hate love triangles. I need REASONS.
    The summary got me though. Nice pick!
