Waiting on Wednesday #166 - The Walls Around Us & The Wondrous and the Wicked

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Be sure to post a link to your Waiting on Wednesday below!

This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...

"Ori's dead because of what happened out behind the theater, in the tunnel made out of trees. She's dead because she got sent to that place upstate, locked up with those monsters. And she got sent there because of me."

The Walls Around Us is a ghostly story of suspense told in two voices--one still living and one long dead. On the outside, there's Violet, an eighteen-year-old dancer days away from the life of her dreams when something threatens to expose the shocking truth of her achievement. On the inside, within the walls of a girls' juvenile detention center, there's Amber, locked up for so long she can't imagine freedom. Tying these two worlds together is Orianna, who holds the key to unlocking all the girls' darkest mysteries.

We hear Amber's story and Violet's, and through them Orianna's, first from one angle, then from another, until gradually we begin to get the whole picture--which is not necessarily the one that either Amber or Violet wants us to see. (Summary from Goodreads)

Holy crapoly! This sounds amazing. I'm in!

The Waverly sisters must save themselves before all is lost.

Since the Waverlys arrived in Paris, the streets have grown more fearsome by the day. As Ingrid learns to master her lectrux gift, she must watch Axia's power grow strong enough to extend beyond her Underneath hive. By all indications, the fallen angel's Harvest is near-and the timing couldn't be worse.

Targeted by vengeful gargoyles, Gabby as been exiled to London for her own protection. Meanwhile, the gargoyle castes are in disarray, divided between those who want Luc to lead them and those who resent him and his fondness for humans. The Alliance is crumbling from the inside as well, its members turning against one another, and possibly against the Waverlys, too.

Axia has promised that the world will burn. And now, unable to trust the Alliance, seperated from Luc, Gabby, and her twin, Grayson, Ingrid is left to face the demon uprising alone. (Summary from Goodreads)

I have absolutely ADORED this series and cannot wait to read what happens in the conclusion of this fantastically trilling trilogy.

Check out my review of:
Book 1 - The Beautiful and the Cursed
Book 2 - The Lovely and the Lost 

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. Great picks! I'll have to check both books out!

  2. OH my yes, good pick---The Walls Around Us is fantastic, one of my favorites this year so far. I hope you enjoy it soon!

  3. I've heard a lot about the first one, but for some reason I'm torn on if I want to read it or not. I'll guess I'll wait on reviews to get a better feel of it.

    For the other, I haven't seen anything about this series before. But it sounds like a lot of fun!

    Great picks.
