Blood Rose Rebellion (Blood Rose Rebellion, #1) by Rosalyn Eves (3/28/17)
This sounds like an interesting read. The setting definitely intrigues me.

A Crown of Wishes (The Star-Touched Queen, #2) by Roshani Chokshi (3/28/17)
I still haven't read the first book in this series yet. But the premise makes me want to go ahead and take a chance.

Sarah J. Maas Galore!

For those of you that follow me know that I'm a huge fan of Maas's work. I'm so in love with her books and I don't know what I would do without her creative genius in my life. All of her books, even the novellas have received 5 starred reviews from me.

I recently pre-ordered a personalized signed copy of A Court of Wings and Ruin to complete my ACOTAR series. I will also be doing the same for her Throne of Glass Series. Her heroines are my favorite types to read about. They are so bad-ass! I have all of the ebooks too but I had to get the HCs for my bookshelves. One of my wishlist goals is to meet the Awesome SJM. It's going to happen darn it! Her books have brought me so much joy. When life is stressful, I can just delve into her world and I feel so much better for it.

Look at my lovelies!

Waiting on Wednesday: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Publication date: 09/26/2017
Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized among them. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.

Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love, violating the fair folks’ ruthless Good Law. To save both their lives, Isobel must drink from the Green Well, whose water will transform her into a fair one—at the cost of her Craft, for immortality is as stagnant as it is timeless.

Isobel has a choice: she can sacrifice her art for a future, or arm herself with paint and canvas against the ancient power of the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.

I don't know about you but this book...this book y'all! I'm ready to read this like yesterday!

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?
