Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Breaking the Spine where highly anticipated releases are highlighted.
Waiting on Wednesday posts are quite possibly my favourite posts to research and write because I love getting excited for new book releases!
This week I’ve decided to bring up The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo.
Title: The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: September 26th 2017
Pre-Order: Amazon/Book Depository
“Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.
Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid’s voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy’s bidding but only for a terrible price.
Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.
Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.
This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.”
I absolutely adore Leigh Bardugo’s writing and therefore this was an automatic pre-order for me! I’m also incredibly intrigued as to how she writes short stories, and these ones all sound like something I’d gladly sink my teeth into!
