Can’t Wait Wednesday | My Contrary Mary – Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows

We wanted to do another bookish meme on Wednesday and after doing Can’t Wait Wednesday a few times we decided that would be a fun one to bring around more often! About twice a month you’ll see this meme on our blog.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by 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 Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Welcome to Renaissance France, a place of poison and plots, of beauties and beasts, of mice and . . . queens?⠀

Mary is the queen of Scotland and the jewel of the French court. Except when she’s a mouse. Yes, reader, Mary is an Eðian (shapeshifter) in a kingdom where Verities rule. It’s a secret that could cost her a head—or a tail.⠀

Luckily, Mary has a confidant in her betrothed, Francis. But after the king meets a suspicious end, things at the gilded court take a treacherous turn. Thrust onto the throne, Mary and Francis are forced to navigate a viper’s nest of conspiracies, traps, and treason. And if Mary’s secret is revealed, heads are bound to roll.


I have to start off by saying that I’m so glad these three authors decided to write more books together. The Lady Janies is one my favorite trilogies and I’m so glad I picked them up. Here’s to hoping they keep on writing together!

Even though we still have awhile to wait before reading My Contrary Mary, I do have some expectations. I’m expecting these authors taking history and flipping it in ways I’ll never expect. Also, there will probably be a lot of humor. I love how these authors make it feel like we’re in the books with them and talk to the readers.

Have you read The Lady Janies? If you have, are you going to read the next trilogy by these authors? Let me know in the comments!
