What I’m Waiting For:

Rebel of the Sands

She’s more gunpowder than girl—and the fate of the desert lies in her hands.

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there’s nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can’t wait to escape from.

Destined to wind up “wed or dead,” Amani’s counting on her sharpshooting skills to get her out of Dustwalk. When she meets Jin, a mysterious and devastatingly handsome foreigner, in a shooting contest, she figures he’s the perfect escape route. But in all her years spent dreaming of leaving home, she never imagined she’d gallop away on a mythical horse, fleeing the murderous Sultan’s army, with a fugitive who’s wanted for treason. And she’d never have predicted she’d fall in love with him…or that he’d help her unlock the powerful truth of who she really is.

Publish Date: March 8th, 2016

I’m a little wary of this one just because of the whole “she never predicted she’d fall in love with him” bit. It’s no secret I’m not a fan of romance unless it’s done REALLY well. But I’m also a terrible sucker for anything in the fantasy genre, especially YA fantasy.

Promises of mythical beasts and magic? Yes, I’m definitely in.

Truthwitch (The Witchlands, #1)

Publish Date: January 5th, 2016

Description (From Goodreads)

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

I am SO excited for this book, I don’t think I can wait until January 5th for it! I requested a preview excerpt of this book on Netgalley but they seem to be taking forever to get back to me, I’m a very impatient person I’d rather have them just deny me the request instead of making me wait! I don’t like waiting.

This book is actually pretty hyped up but I don’t think it will disappoint me when I FINALLY get to read it. I’m a big fantasy fan and I need this book in my life.

Are any of you guys waiting for “Truthwitch” as well? What are YOU waiting for on this Wednesday? Let me know in the comments and feel free to link your Waiting on Wednesday!
