Waiting on Wednesday (4) - Bitterblue

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Waiting on Wednesday is a post where you can let people know what upcoming books you're anticipating!

This week I am waiting on:

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
May 1, 2012 - Dial

Not a lot has been released about the story of Bitterblue, but from GoodReads: "Bitterblue is a companion book to both Graceling and Fire and takes place in the seven kingdoms eight years after Graceling. This third book will tie all three books together in some way. Bitterblue is the sixteen-year-old protagonist, and Katsa, Po, Giddon, Helda, and other characters from Graceling will be part of the fabric of the book."

And from Cashore's website: "Bitterblue is a companion book to both Graceling and Fire and takes place in the seven kingdoms eight years after Graceling (not six, as I'd written previously). As you may have gathered, the protagonist is Bitterblue. Yes, Katsa, Po and others from Graceling do appear in the book. Bitterblue will be released on May 1, 2021 in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. It will be released in a few other countries/languages as well; I'll supply that information when I have it."

Why I Want It:
I loved both Graceling and Fire, both were so much fun to read and really got me started on reading more YA Fantasy novels. Bitterblue's part of the story in Graceling was really well done and ever since there was talk of a Bitterblue novel a few years ago, I have been waiting to find out when it comes out. I'm so excited that there's a date for it now, and can't wait to read it!

I still have to read Graceling, but it sounds sooo good! I didn't know there was this one coming out. Sounds like a good one to! Great pick!

Here's my WoW!

Graceling is next on my TBR pile, and I've heard so much good stuff about Kristin Cashore's books, so Bitterblue is definitely on my radar too!

Here's my Wow :)

I can't wait for this one either. I loved Graceling and Fire. I can't wait for more of Bitterblue's story, or how Cashore will blend the two first books.
