Waiting on Wednesday: Blacksouls by Nicole Castroman

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!



Blacksouls (Blackhearts #2) by Nicole Castroman
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: February 7, 2016
Buy it: Amazon | B&N | Book Depository
Nicole Castroman brings the dangerous pirate ports of the Caribbean to life in this vibrant sequel to Blackhearts—the reimagined origin story of history’s most infamous pirate, Blackbeard.

Edward “Teach” Drummond is setting sail to the Caribbean as first mate on the most celebrated ship in the British fleet—until he rebels against his captain. Sailing on the same blue waters, Anne barely makes it to the Caribbean, where she hopes to learn more about her ancestry. What she doesn’t expect is a port filled with lawless criminals and danger lurking around every corner.

With the mutinous Teach in chains, Anne must brave the perilous, pirate haven of Nassau in order to save not only Teach, but her new friends on the island. But when Teach is offered a deal—capture a notorious pirate or waste away in the Governor’s dungeons—what he discovers brings him closer and closer to becoming a pirate himself. And further away from Anne who is being held hostage in exchange for Teach’s loyalty to the Governor.

Now Teach must decide if he should risk his own soul to save Anne. Even if that means turning into a ruthless pirate…

Even if that means turning into Blackbeard.

Ever since I read Blackhearts, I've been dying for this sequel! I was prepared to start a protest with picket signs in front of the Simon and Schuster building before it was announced that there would be a sequel. Thankfully, it didn't come to that xD. I can't wait to find out what has become of Anne since Blackhearts left off, and I'm so excited for all the piratey goodness this book promises!


Nicole was lucky enough to come with her very own best friend...she has a twin sister who can read her mind and finish her sentences for her.


At the age of 13, she went to Europe for the first time and it changed her life. She loves learning about different people, languages and cultures and speaks fluent German. She knows enough Spanish to get herself into trouble and can still read the Cyrillic alphabet from when she studied Russian.


She received her B.A. from Brigham Young University and has lived in Germany, Austria and two different places called Georgia. One is located on the Black Sea. The other is the state of Georgia where she now lives with her handsome husband and two beautiful children who continue to amaze her.

    1. Get book one and read it! It's really good. Just don't go into it thinking pirates because that's pre-pirate but this one isn't!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Blackhearts is on my "someday when I have extra reading time" list. I am happy everyone is getting the sequel so soon. It is torture when there are two plus years between series books.

    1. I highly recommend Blackhearts but that's a pre-pirate book! Blacksouls however should have a lot of pirates, so I'm really excited!
