Waiting on Wednesday: Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard

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!

Pre-order it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Book Depository |
Publication Date: February 9, 2016

Synopsis: If there's one thing Mare Barrow knows, it's that she's different.

Mare Barrow's blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: She is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

After the cover reveal for this book yesterday (it's GORGEOUS, isn't it?!) I thought that this was a perfect book for this week's Waiting on Wednesday. When I first read the Red Queen, I didn't know that it was a highly anticipated book. I just liked the cover and it sounded interesting. I received it from Netgalley *fingers crossed for an ARC of the sequel* and I fell in love. This story is so fascinating and complex! Just when I thought I had everything figured out a turn of the page would shatter my understanding of everything. I can't wait to find out what happens next!
