Meme: "Waiting on" Wednesday - Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to highlight books yet to be published that they can't wait to read.

This week, I am looking forward to:

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Publication Date: February 9, 2016

Goodreads Summary:


The thrilling second book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen trilogy follows Mare Barrow on her mission to defeat the traitorous Maven.

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?

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness of her own heart.


Why: I just finished reading Red Queen a week or so ago and adored it. Of course I would want the sequel as soon as possible, and this is it. I really want to see how the plot twists affect this second novel, and how Mare and Cal come back from such a tragedy and move forward.

Happy Reading!
