WoW·Wayward Witch

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

Listen, it doesn’t matter how far away these books are because I already love them and everyone else should be looking out for them too


I have seen heaven and it’s the Brooklyn Brujas matching covers! The WW cover was revealed this past week and IT’S SO PRETTY

That’s why it gets a WoW feature even though the release date it so far away

Rose Mortiz has always been a fixer, but lately she’s been feeling lost. She has brand-new powers she doesn’t understand, and her family is still trying to figure out how to function in the wake of her amnesiac father’s return home. Then, on the night of her Deathday party, Rose discovers her father’s memory loss has been a lie.
 
As she rushes to his side, the two are ambushed and pulled through a portal to the land of Adas, a fairy realm hidden in the Caribbean Sea. There, Rose is forced to work with a group of others to save Adas. Soon, she begins to discover the scope of her powers, the troubling truth about her father’s past, and the sacrifices he made to save her sisters.

But if Rose wants to return home so she can repair her broken family, she must figure out how to heal Adas first.

Expected publication: August 1st 2020 by Sourcebooks Fire

BBHop-That’s a classic

About the Book Blogger Hop by Coffee Adicted Writer

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, I relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This week’s question:.

Do you read classics? If so, what is your favorite?

Very rearely, I don’t know why but the mood for classic literature is rare

My favorite, and one I’ve talked about a lot in this blog is The Symposium by Plato. Even if you are not much opf a fan of greek philosophy you can enjoy this book.-


This week I hopped to:

Did you know that we are in NaNoWriMo? If you are like me and trudging through putting down words every day then I recommend check out NovelKnight’s tips for surviving NaNo, from one writer to another

Hannah has a really interesting discussion post about how we show immaturity on YA, or how we avoid it. She has some great points and some of my favorite writers are quoted.

Jenny has a post on what she wishes non-bloggers knew, based in comment she’s gotten that go from annoying to straight up rude. The post also demystifies some beliefs people have about blogging as a career.

This week’s question:.

What’s your favorite horror book-to-movie adaptation?

I’m crossing out horror because I literally never watch horror movies

I don’t know if it’ll be the best but I’m super excited for the Grishaverse adaptation!

Is it only because of the female cast? YES, these girls would get me to watch anything

To keep on the grishaverse theme AND halloween, I want to share with all of you some designs for Six of Crows’ opera “The Komedy Brute” done by fantastic artist frauke. Their entire blog is a thing of beauty and I’d totally wear these costumes if they were real
