Nevernight | Waiting on Wednesday [#14]


Hey guys!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

So here’s what I’m waiting on this week!


Author: Jay Kristoff
Series: The Nevernight Chronicles
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books
Publication Date: August 9th, 2016


NevernightIn a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s past return to haunt her, and a plot to bring down the entire congregation is unfolding in the shadows she so loves.

Will she even survive to initiation, let alone have her revenge?

Why I’m Waiting


Female assassins are the baddest of badass characters you can get! And would you look at that cover? It’s equal bits creepy, terrifying and stunning!

P.S. Jay Kristoff wrote The Lotus War Trilogy and Illuminae!

What has you guys waiting this week? Let me know down below!

Until next time,

  1. I actually haven’t read any of Kristoff’s previous work, but i’m super excited from this one! I’ve heard some really good reviews from close friends -despite it’s slow beginning, i figure it’s because it’s such a high concept fantasy- i’m super excited to read this!

  2. I was approved for an eARC of Nevernight and I can’t wait to read it this month. It sounds so good. I just hope that I have better luck with this Kristoff book since I wasn’t the biggest fan of Illuminae.

  3. That cover ,<3 I'm torn between the US and UK edition so I think when it comes down to it I could probably end up buying both just so I won't have to chose haha. Not got long to go now. 5 weeks and counting. Bring it on!!!
