"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:
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Book Two of the Red Queen series
Publication Date: February 9, 2016
Summary (from Goodreads):
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.
I liked Red Queen! I'm interested in the direction this series is going for sure.
I'm happily awaiting for Glass Queen as well! Although I didn't like Red Queen as much as others did (sad, I know!) I'm still excited to see where Aveyard takes this next story... there's a lot of potential! Plus, the covers are beautiful and I must own the pretty set :)ReplyDelete
*Glass Sword not Glass QueenDelete

Arlene @ WinterHaven Books
I'm so impatient to have this one too. I hope to see her in France soon.ReplyDelete
That is SO COOL, Carine!Delete
Great pick lady! I can't wait for this one! Damn Maven! I am stalking Edel daily for it so I can request.ReplyDelete
Hopefully they upload it!Delete
I have not read the first book in this series. I have heard wonderful things about it. Just waiting for the entire series to be released.ReplyDelete
The first book was excellent!Delete
I hope this is as good as the first book, because I loved that one! I am also eager to read this. Good pick!ReplyDelete
Gosh I hope so too! Thank you, Sam!Delete
I still need to read the first book. Glad the sequel isn't too far away from being released though, so maybe I'll catch up sooner than expected. Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
February really isn't that far away! You're welcome, Shane.Delete
Great pick! I haven't started this series yet but definitely adding it to my TBR.ReplyDelete

Good for you, Renee!Delete
Oh nice! I still need to read the first one, but glad to hear you enjoyed it so much you're looking forward to this one! I know I read your review sometime ago, but I can't remember how you felt about it! But I can't wait!ReplyDelete
Have you read the prequel novella yet? Would you recommend reading it first or after the first book?
Here’s my WoW
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
I really liked Red Queen! And I typically don't read novellas, as I think they're a waste of money (unless they're made into some sort of bind-up, like Rae Carson's or Sarah J. Maas'). I couldn't tell you, Jessica!Delete
I'm very intrigued by this series but not sure yet if I want to read it or not... I think I'll wait for you to read this sequel before I decide!ReplyDelete
I know exactly what you mean, Pili! I am flattered. ;DDelete
I loved the first one. Can't wait to read this as well!ReplyDelete
Check out my WOW
I'm excited for this one too. I'm really curious to see how things will unfold in book 2!ReplyDelete
Hopefully good things! And no cliffhangers! O_ODelete
hope you have a chance to read and enjoy soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Brandi!Delete
I haven't read the first book in this series. I hope you enjoy reading this one!ReplyDelete
OMG yes! Book one was really good, hopefully this one is too.ReplyDelete
I really hope so, Nereyda!Delete
I still haven't read the first book. Once upon a time, I was so excited for the Red Queen. But for some reason, my excitement has gone way way down. My copy is just there, collecting dust on my shelf :O I hope to get to it one day thoughReplyDelete
~Karina @ A Reader Under The Sea
I know that feeling, Karina! Maybe you can binge-read the series in 2017. :)Delete
Haven't started this series this series yet, but I totally love the gorgeous covers! Hope you enjoy this one!ReplyDelete
Here's my WoW
The covers ARE pretty great!Delete
Fantastic pick! I haven't read Red Queen yet because I'm so not patient when it comes to waiting for books in series... but I do have a copy and I plan to read it closer to this one's release date. These covers are too gorgeous!!:)ReplyDelete
I know exactly what you mean, Lisa! Sometimes I exercise restraint and decide to binge-read series after all three books are published. It's better that way sometimes!Delete
I really, really need to get the first book in this series.ReplyDelete
Thanks Alyssa, for reminding me. Hope you're having a great week.
You should, Marilyn! I hope you are too!Delete
I didn't read Red Queen yet, but I am definitely reading it before the release of Glass Sword; I've heard only great things. Also, the covers are just beautiful! Great pick :)ReplyDelete
I hope you do! Thank you!Delete
So excited for this book! I adored Red Queen :)ReplyDelete
I am so excited for this book! Can't wait to see what Victoria has in store for us!!!ReplyDelete
Yaaasss! Not too long from now!Delete
GLASS SWORD! I love, love, love this series so much. I can't wait for February. I wanted to request for an ARC but also don't like to spoil the fun as well so I'll wait for it to be published! Weeeeeeehh!ReplyDelete

Good for you, Yani!Delete
OMG YES! I really cannot wait to see where this one goes. The end to Red Queen took such a twist and I am dying for answers!ReplyDelete
