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.
Lana Baker is Aldgate’s finest scribe, with a sharp pen and an even sharper wit. Gregarious, charming, and ever so eager to please, she agrees to deliver a message for another lovely scribe in exchange for kisses and ends up getting sent to Low Parliament by a temperamental fairy as a result.
As Lana transcribes the endless circular arguments of Parliament, the debates grow tenser and more desperate. Due to long-standing tradition, a hung vote will cause Parliament to flood and a return to endless war. Lana must rely on an unlikely pair of comrades—Bugbite, the curmudgeonly fairy, and Eloquentia, the bewitching human deputy—to save humanity (and maybe even woo one or two lucky ladies), come hell or high water.
I love the look of this cover! so many gorgeous colors and the longer you look at it, the more details you see. Also, that title rolls of the tongue wonderfully haha. I really like the sound of the synopsis. Arguments of the parliament, possibly have a endless war returning and kisses in exchange for delivering a message.
I haven’t read anything by Kelly Robson yet and there aren’t that many early reviews yet. Only 40 ratings so far. That makes it a bit harder to figure out how I’ll feel about the story in the end. It does sound like something I’ll really like.
Had you heard about this book yet? And now that you have, do you plan on picking it up? I can’t wait to discover the rules (of magic) in this universe. Would love to discuss this book with you!
