Waiting on Wednesday #26: King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme where we will showcase that one book we can't wait to hit the market!


Title: King's Cage
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Series: Red Queen #3
Publication Details: February 7th 2017 by HarperTeen
Genre: YA, Fantasy

In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl's spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother's web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare's heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down. (Goodreads)

I am sooooo excited for this one! Glass Sword kind of ended on a cliffhanger, so I really want to know what will happen next to the characters, especially to Mare. And also, the flow of the story is quite unpredictable, so I want to know how the author will weave the elements together. :)


It's been a while since my last WoW post. Haha!
How about you folks? What are you waiting on?

Stacking the Shelves #19: 37th Manila International Book Fair Book Haul

Hi folks!
Happy October!

September was a blur (I'm not even going to explain anymore). However, I was able to buy books from the Manila International Book Fair! Yey! I exceeded my expense limit, but most of what I bought are those I'm really dying to read. :)

 I bought 10 books! Most of them are YA.

Just a quick, FYI about me- I am a Christian and my ministry is teaching. Thus, I bought these Bible Study Guides as references. :)

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman- This chunk is so intriguing! I can't wait to read this!
Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer

Firefight (The Reckoners #2) by Brandon Sanderson
I also got free bookmarks from National Book Store! :)

Crown of Midnight (Throne of Glass #2) by Sarah J. Maas- I'm currently reading this one.
Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas

The Infinite Sea (The 5th Wave #2) by Rick Yancey- which I finished reading last Saturday. :) I was quite apprehensive to buy a copy since the size is smaller, but I really want to read this ASAP so I bought it anyway.
The Last Star (The 5th Wave #3) by Rick Yancey- I'll probably read this after Crown of Midnight. :)


There folks! Those are the newest additions to my shelves!

Have you read any of these? How did you find it? :)
