Noticed I don't have a Currently Reading entry? Well because I'm just about to read Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White. 




Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on.

The Orphan Queen
(The Orphan Queen #1)
by Jodi Meadows

Expected publication: March 10th 2015 by Katherine Tegen Books

Blurb (Goodreads):
Wilhelmina has a hundred identities.

She is a princess. When the Indigo Kingdom conquered her homeland, Wilhelmina and other orphaned children of nobility were taken to Skyvale, the Indigo Kingdom’s capital. Ten years later, they are the Ospreys, experts at stealth and theft. With them, Wilhelmina means to take back her throne.

She is a spy. Wil and her best friend, Melanie, infiltrate Skyvale Palace to study their foes. They assume the identities of nobles from a wraith-fallen kingdom, but enemies fill the palace, and Melanie’s behavior grows suspicious. With Osprey missions becoming increasingly dangerous and their leader more unstable, Wil can’t trust anyone.

She is a threat. Wraith is the toxic by-product of magic, and for a century using magic has been forbidden. Still the wraith pours across the continent, reshaping the land and animals into fresh horrors. Soon it will reach the Indigo Kingdom. Wilhelmina’s magic might be the key to stopping the wraith, but if the vigilante Black Knife discovers Wil’s magic, she will vanish like all the others


Jodi Meadows introduces a vivid new fantasy full of intrigue, romance, dangerous magic, and one girl’s battle to reclaim her place in the world.




I'm craving for some epic fantasy these days. I have a feeling that 2015 will be for fantasies just like 2014 was for contemps. Yep, I'm like that. Anyways, I'm adding this book on my Epic Fantasy To-Read list coz this sounds really awesome. Can't wait!

  1. Looks like a good line up of books.
    I am never caught up but I am getting better at staying away from Netgalley! I'm trying to do at least 2 review request books each week and stop taking many in until I'm caught up.
