Waiting on Wednesday is hosted at Breaking the Spine
Hey guys! It is time for another WoW! This weeks pick for me is an author who I actually really like, but haven’t read all of her books! I have been meaning to, but you know how it is!
The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano
Expected Publication: October 24th 2017 by Balzer+Bray
A banished princess.
A deadly curse.
A kingdom at war.
Wil Heidle, the only daughter of the king of the world’s wealthiest nation, has grown up in the shadows. Kept hidden from the world in order to serve as a spy for her father—whose obsession with building his empire is causing a war—Wil wants nothing more than to explore the world beyond her kingdom, if only her father would give her the chance.
Until one night Wil is attacked, and she discovers a dangerous secret. Her touch turns people into gemstone. At first Wil is horrified—but as she tests its limits, she’s drawn more and more to the strange and volatile ability. When it leads to tragedy, Wil is forced to face the destructive power within her and finally leave her home to seek the truth and a cure.
But finding the key to her redemption puts her in the path of a cursed prince who has his own ideas for what to do with her power.
With a world on the brink of war and a power of ultimate destruction, can Wil find a way to help the kingdom that’s turned its back on her, or will she betray her past and her family forever?
I absolutely adore this cover and the blurb sounds really interesting as well! I have been meaning to finish her Chemical Garden Trilogy and hopefully I will do that before this release! I also have the Internment Chronicles on my TBR!

This book sounds so interesting! The blurb reminds me of Shatter Me and a bit of The Sin-Eater’s Daughter, but with a great spin, great writing and good world-building this can be a promising story. 🙂
This does sound like a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see what she has done with it 🙂
I cannot believe that there is another DeStefano book on the horizon! I really need to start reading some of this author’s books. They sound fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing this one. 🙂
I loved Wither and I have been meaning to continue the series for ages and I also have her other series in my tbr!! I need to catch up with her work
Ohh this sounds like a really interesting book. I haven’t read any of Lauren DeStefano’s other works, I’ve seen some mixed reviews for her first series, but this one sounds really good. Plus that cover is gorgeous so I may have to give this one a go myself.
Great pick Lauren! 🙂
It does look really interesting and the cover is beautiful!!
Interesting blurb and gorgeous cover are all it takes to get me to add a book to my to-read list! 😀
