Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hoste at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you're continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
I am so excited! I just found out that one of my all time favorite series is getting a new book in 2021! Not only that but the whole series is getting a new set of covers!! I am going to have to find more room on my shelves because I need them all, US & UK to add to my collection! I had to add both covers, the first is the US and the second is the UK cover.
Winterkeep by Kristin Cashore
Release Date: January 19, 2021
Synopsis: "Four years after Bitterblue left off, a new land has been discovered to the east: Torla; and the closest nation to Monsea is Winterkeep. Winterkeep is a land of miracles, a democratic republic run by people who like each other, where people speak to telepathic sea creatures, adopt telepathic foxes as pets, and fly across the sky in ships attached to balloons.
But when Bitterblue’s envoys to Winterkeep drown under suspicious circumstances, she and Giddon and her half sister, Hava, set off to discover the truth–putting both Bitterblue’s life and Giddon’s heart to the test when Bitterbue is kidnapped. Giddon believes she has drowned, leaving him and Hava to solve the mystery of what’s wrong in Winterkeep.
Lovisa Cavenda is the teenage daughter of a powerful Scholar and Industrialist (the opposing governing parties) with a fire inside her that is always hungry, always just nearly about to make something happen. She is the key to everything, but only if she can figure out what’s going on before anyone else, and only if she’s willing to transcend the person she’s been all her life."
How do you feel about authors reviving old series, sometimes that have been completed for years? Most of the time I have no desire to pick up new books, but I am dying for this one. I am so hoping for Fire and Brigan to be in this one, I need more of them!
Either way, who is up for a re-read with me in December & January?!
