Waiting on Wednesday #67

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 

Glitter by Aprilynne Pike
Publication Date: October 25th, 2016


Outside the palace of Versailles, it’s modern day. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it’s the eighteenth century—with the added bonus of technology to make court life lavish, privileged, and frivolous. The palace has every indulgence, but for one pretty young thing, it’s about to become a very beautiful prison.

When Danica witnesses an act of murder by the young king, her mother makes a cruel power play . . . blackmailing the king into making Dani his queen. When she turns eighteen, Dani will marry the most ruthless and dangerous man of the court. She has six months to escape her terrifying destiny. Six months to raise enough money to disappear into the real world beyond the palace gates.

Her ticket out? Glitter. A drug so powerful that a tiny pinch mixed into a pot of rouge or lip gloss can make the wearer hopelessly addicted. Addicted to a drug Dani can sell for more money than she ever dreamed.
But in Versailles, secrets are impossible to keep. And the most dangerous secret—falling for a drug dealer outside the palace walls—is one risk she has to take.

A fantasy historical fiction? I can get on board with this! This book looks crazy unique and I don't think I can be more excited to read it.  & what girl doesn't love a little glitter ;)? 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

Mosaic (Reliquary #3) by Sarah Fine 
Publication Date: November 15, 2016


Mosaic (Reliquary, #3)Mattie Carver never thought she’d give up her small-town life to become one half of the best magic-smuggling duo in the business. Until recently, she didn’t even know such a business existed. But as an unusually strong reliquary—able to carry vast quantities of magic in her body, undetected—she’s been pulled into an underworld of organized crime and addictive enchantments. And although she’s determined to keep things professional, her partner, Asa Ward, is a temptation she finds increasingly hard to resist.

Even as their relationship reaches a tipping point, Mattie is wary; Asa already told her he hates cages—literal or otherwise. But when an international black-market magic exchange goes awry, Asa falls into the hands of his enemies. Now, with the man who refuses to be controlled under the command of a ruthless captor, Mattie must decide how far she’s willing to go to rescue him—assuming there’s anything left to save.

I'm a huge fan of Sarah Fine, and she hasn't disappointed me to date! I highly recommend checking out this series if you're a fan of magic and sexy romance! The chemistry between Mattie and Asa is undeniable, and I'm excited to see the continuation of their story in this third installment in the Reliquary series.


  1. Ooh nice! I read Glitter last month! It was pretty interesting! Eager to see where the story will go! Haven't read the other series yet. Hope you both enjoy your picks once you read them!

  3. I've read thirteen (I think it's thirteen? All but Burn.) of Sarah's published books... this series has been my least favorite, sadly. I didn't like book one but I did like book two. Book three though... *sigh* I hope you like it. It's quite the conclusion. Glitter, I don't know much about, but I remember liking Pike's Wings series! Talk about a classic - it wasn't that long ago, but those books are years old. :O I hope you enjoy these books when you get a chance to read them!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    Check out my WoW post!

  4. I say I love historical fantasy but it rarely works out for me. Crossing my fingers that Gliter is AMAZING.
