Waiting on Wednesday (#195): A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi
Book Two of The Star-Touched Queen series
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Publication Date: March 28, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

When Gauri, the princess of Bharata, is captured by her kingdom’s rivals, she can only find help in Vikram, the cunning prince of an enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with royal life, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. They set aside their differences and team up to compete in the Tournament of Wishes, wherein the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor. Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire. 



I liked The Star-Touched Queen and am definitely looking forward to reading its companion novel. This cover is so pretty!

  1. Nice cover! I can't get over how many awesome YA covers there are these days, Even sometimes for a book I have no interest in, the cover says buy me. lol! This looks like a good series though.

    1. Awww! I know what you mean though - it was a 3.5-star read from me, which is pretty positive but not "love". Thank you, Jessica!

  16. The Star Touched Queen definitely caught my interest more than I expected, and I'm very interested to read this and see what else will happen in this world. Great pick!
    Check out my WOW

  17. That's too bad you didn't like Nemesis. I wasn't a huge fan of Anna Banks but I was hoping Nemesis would be good. Thanks for the heads up!
    I've been dying to read The Star Touched Queen but I just haven't had the time. I think I'll wait till this one comes out so I won't have to wait :)
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Yeah, Nemesis was good, but Sepora kind of ruined things. Meh!

      The Star-Touched Queen was interesting! Not amazing (for me), but good. Binge-reading the two books sounds great!

      You're welcome, Aneta. :D

  18. I never read The Star-Touched Queen. I guess I should...
    Anyway, how is this a companion novel? Is it different characters or something like that?

    1. This one is about the sister of the protagonist of book one! Trust me, if you read book one, you'll be dying to read Gauri's story. What happened during that time that she wasn't mentioned, in book one?! We must know! ;)

  19. I love the covers for this series. Have a great week!

  22. Hi Alyssa sorry it's taken me so long to come by! I can't wait to read The Star-Touched Queen, I've heard so many great things. It's exciting to hear that A Crown of Wishes is a companion novel rather than a sequel. Can't wait to read what you think.

    Happy Reading

    PS absolutely gorgeous covers. I think I'd buy them just for that reason.
