Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday again and that means WoW is here! For those of you that don’t know, Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over @ Breaking the Spine and it’s a gloriously fun event where we get to feature one up-and-coming release and flail about it in our excitement. Excellent, no?


Now, spit spot! This week I’m waiting on . . .

 Ruined by Amy Tintera


RELEASE DATE: 3rd May 2016

Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Author: Amy Tintera
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 368 {hardback}

Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.

But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.

In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.

Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.

Goodreads summary

This book, guys, sounds like a real whirlwind. Marrying someone from an enemy kingdom to save your sister? Ooh yeah, Count. Me. In. I’ve been in a real YA mood lately and am fighting the real fight with myself to not pre-order all these magnificent books (with this high on the list). I also really, really like the cover for this one too – which is usually 40% of the reason for my buying any book, so what chance did I stand before seeing how amazing the plot was? Ah, the dilemmas of a bookworm.

This is also released in my birthday month . . . just saying, Birthday Fairy.


Have you got your eye on Ruined, too? Why are you excited about it?

 What are you waiting on?
