Waiting on Wednesday. The Girl in the Tower

Wednesday, 11 October 2017


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week on WoW is The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden. Another beautifully eerie cover. ­čĺľ As usual, I haven't started reading this series yet -although, I do have the first book, The Bear and the Nightingale, staring at me on my bookshelf... making me feel guilty because I haven't picked it up yet... and making me feel guilty because I've been thinking about buying another edition cause I'm in love with its cover (I know it' a waste of money but the cover is really pretty). The book will be released on December 5th.

"The magical adventure begun in The Bear and the Nightingale continues as brave Vasya, now a young woman, is forced to choose between marriage or life in a convent and instead flees her home—but soon finds herself called upon to help defend the city of Moscow when it comes under siege.

Orphaned and cast out as a witch by her village, Vasya’s options are few: resign herself to life in a convent, or allow her older sister to make her a match with a Moscovite prince. Both doom her to life in a tower, cut off from the vast world she longs to explore. So instead she chooses adventure, disguising herself as a boy and riding her horse into the woods. When a battle with some bandits who have been terrorizing the countryside earns her the admiration of the Grand Prince of Moscow, she must carefully guard the secret of her gender to remain in his good graces—even as she realizes his kingdom is under threat from mysterious forces only she will be able to stop.

  3. The cover is gorgeous! To be honest I DNFed The Bear and the Nightingale not because it was bad but because it was slow and I had to get to other things on my schedule. But I hope you enjoy both of them when you get a chance to read them!

    Thanks for sharing,

    1. Thank you. I hope I don't find the pace slow because I really have a difficult time reading a book when its story goes very slow.

      Happy readings! ;)

  10. The Girl In the Tower looks gorgeous! I think this series will have a collection of fantastic covers. I'm also hoping to read The Bear and the Nightingale soon because I've heard great things about it. Was it about Russian folklore? I think so. I'm totally in for this read! Great pick!

    1. Yes, it is based on Russian folklore. I think it was what attracted me the most on this series since I love folk tales and retellings. I hope we both have the opportunity to read The Bear and the Nightingale soon and we both enjoy it.

      Happy readings Sophie. ;)
