Waiting on Wednesday [#15]

I’ve got a good one for you today guys! Today is Wednesday therefore it is the most fun event of Waiting on Wednesday *throws arms into air in a celebratory fashion*. WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where we get to feature an up-and-coming release of a book and TALK VERY LOUDLY about it for approximately 3 minutes. If you head over to the link up you’ll find a big long list of other amazing people who are also talking loudly and you should definitely see what they’re excited about.


This week I’m waiting on . . .

 The Potion Diaries by Amy Alward

Book one in the Potion series

When the Princess of Nova accidentally poisons herself with a love potion meant for her crush, she falls crown-over-heels in love with her own reflection. Oops.

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Author: Amy Alward
Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK
Pages: 320 {paperback}

RELEASE DATE: 2nd July 2016


 A nationwide hunt is called to find the cure, with competitors travelling the world for the rarest ingredients, deep in magical forests and frozen tundras, facing death at every turn.

Enter Samantha Kemi – an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent. Sam’s family were once the most respected alchemists in the kingdom, but they’ve fallen on hard times, and winning the hunt would save their reputation. But can Sam really compete with the dazzling powers of the ZoroAster megapharma company? Just how close is Sam willing to get to Zain Aster, her dashing former classmate and enemy, in the meantime?

And just to add to the pressure, this quest is ALL OVER social media. And the world news. 

Everything about this book has me cackling away in delight. I mean, did you read the blurb?! I am 100% going to buy this when it comes out because I think this sounds like it’s going to be a whole new bag of fun. I just have no words for how excited I am about this one.

And can we all appreciated how fun the cover looks?! It’s all happy with friendly colours (and a splash of morbid) and just AH. I’m getting the vibe that this is going to feel like a Natalia Jaster book (and if you haven’t read any of her books then you probably should) with it’s greatness combined with hilarity. But who knows! I could be wrong (but I don’t think I am).

As a quick sidetone, this book is actually called “Madly” in the US and Canada, although I honestly have no idea why.


 What are you waiting on?
