Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, where you can feature books you are excited about and have yet to read. These are generally books that have not been released yet! This is based on Waiting on Wednesday which was originally hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week I am featuring a book that I know A LOT of people are anticipating! THE WICKED KING! Only 6 more days until we can have our minds blown by this sequel to one of my top 5 reads of 2018, The Cruel Prince! My excitement for this book knows no bounds, which is why I have THREE different physical copy editions plus the audiobook pre-ordered!
I will be getting the original edition (signed) plus goodies in the Whimsify special edition box! I will be getting the Owlcrate exclusive edition (which will match their cover of The Cruel Prince from last year! and I believe is also signed). I also have the Barnes & Noble exclusive edition pre-ordered! And then lastly the Audible audiobook! Do you collect multiple editions of your favorite books? Clearly I do!
This cover is SO gorgeous! I’m excited to see how different the Owlcrate cover looks!
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.
I hope you are as excited for this book as I am! The Wicked King releases on January 8th 2019! If you would like to pre-order here are some links:
