"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:
The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
Book Three of The Winner's Trilogy
Publisher: Farrar Straus & Giroux
Publication Date: March 1, 2016
Summary (from Goodreads):
War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it, with the East as his ally and the empire as his enemy. He’s finally managed to dismiss the memory of Kestrel, even if he can’t quite forget her. Kestrel turned into someone he could no longer recognize: someone who cared more for the empire than for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she cared for him. At least, that’s what he thinks.
But far north lies a work camp where Kestrel is a prisoner. Can she manage to escape before she loses herself? As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover unexpected roles in battle, terrible secrets, and a fragile hope. The world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and Kestrel and Arin are caught between. In a game like this, can anybody really win?
Please end with a HEA, please end with a HEA, PLEASE END WITH A HEA OR ELSE.
One of these days I will start this series.ReplyDelete

Hopefully some day, Marilyn! Thank you!Delete

Nice! Never did read this series. Felt hesitant so I stuck to my overflowing TBR mountain instead! LOL. Hope you enjoy the conclusion!ReplyDelete

I hope so! Thank you, Brooke!Delete
Haven't started this series yet but I love the covers. Blurb intrigues me enough to move it further up the pile. Thanks for sharing. Hope you get your HEA :)ReplyDelete
Shane @ Itching for Books
I sure hope so too, Shane!Delete
And for everything that is holy, please have a HEA!!!!
Seriously though?!?!?!? Ahhh!Delete
TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR LAST COMMENT - I neeeeed a happy ending with Kestrel and Arin! *waits impatiently*ReplyDelete
There will be so many upset people if there isn't a happy ending!Delete
I haven't read any of this series. I hope you enjoy reading this book.ReplyDelete
I haven't even started reading this series yet. The first book sits on my TBR shelf, I look at it longingly, and then I pick something else, because there's always an ARC to be read, or a book festival coming or an author signing coming up...you get the picture. Anyway, I really, really want to read this series! Great pick, I envy you for being caught up! Here's my WoW. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Yup, I know how you feel!Delete
Great pick, I am excited for this one too. Hope you get a chance to read it soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Brandi!Delete
So excited for this book! I can't wait to see how this all wraps up! I hope it ends well because things just didn't go smoothly for anyone in The Winner's Crime it seems!ReplyDelete
RIGHT?! Marie, don't disappoint us...Delete
Yes!!! The Winner's Crime completely broke my heart and I need to see how the series ends! Awesome pick, Alyssa :)ReplyDelete
Zareena @ The Slanted Bookshelf
The Winner's Kiss needs to piece our hearts back together!Delete
I'm not even aware of this series! I feel like I'm missing out! And after some of the un-HEA endings of recent trilogies, it would be nice to feel HAPPY after finishing a series!!ReplyDelete
Now you are! And seriously, there needs to be more HEAs. Especially with this particular (cruel) series!Delete
LOL :D Stunning pick Alyssa ;) Love that we chose the same one this week, lol. AND YESSSSS. This must end with a HEA for the romance. Otherwise I will be VERY ANGRY. And disappointed. Ugh. Happy ending, please :) Fingers crossed we will both love this precious looking book. <3ReplyDelete
Oh yeah. For sure. There will be an angry mob somewhere if Rutkoski doesn't end this series at least SATISFACTORILY.Delete
I.e. HEA. We will take nothing less. :D
I still haven't read The Winner's Crime! I'm terrified. I just know it's going to break me. :( At this point I guess I should just wait and read 2-3 back to back. Might be better for my heart!ReplyDelete
I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL! The ending was painful. Binge-reading is a smart plan, Danielle!Delete
