Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday WOW is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that you can't wait for!
Title: The Girl of Fire and Thorns
Author: Rae Carson
Release: September 20th 2011

Goodreads Summary: Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do.

This seems to be one of those books that I know I will enjoy. I love all kinds of books but these are the ones I'm always looking out for. =)


  1. Great WoW pick. This one sounds great and I love the cover! =)

  2. I'm really excited about this one - I have a copy to read, I'm hoping to read it next week. It just looks so awesome.
