Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.

Burning Kingdoms
by Lauren DeStefano

hitting shelves March 10, 2015
from Simon & Schuster

After escaping through the bottom of Internment, Morgan and her fellow fugitives aboard the great mechanical bird land on the ground to finally learn what has lived beneath their floating island home all these eons.

The ground is a strange place where water falls from the sky as snow, and customers watch moving pictures and visit speakeasies. A place where families can have as many children as they want, their dead are buried in vast gardens of bodies, and Internment is the feature of an amusement park.

It is also a land at war.

Everyone who fled Internment had their own reasons to escape their corrupt haven. But caught under the watchful eye of another king that wants to dominate his world, they wonder if coming to the ground will drag Internment down with them.

My thoughts:  Even after a somewhat rocky start with the very beginning (as in, I very nearly DNFed it), I ended up really loving Perfect Ruin. And with that crazy and exciting ending, I can't wait to see where the story leads in Burning Kingdoms.


  1. Oh, yes. The ending in Perfect Ruin was pretty insane, I can't wait to read this one. Great pick. :)

  8. I still need to read Perfect Ruin which has been on list forever. The series sounds intriguing. I have to admit that I don't understand the cover redesign. At all. I hope you love this! Great pick!

  9. Did you? I actually did DNF it! I read quite a bit and just couldn't do it, so I quit. I haven't regretted it... Until now, just a bit! :)

  10. This is a very strange synopsis. But I'm intrigued. Also, that cover! Nice WoW pick!
