Waiting on a Wednesday

Sorry it's been a few days, a friend of mine hit a rough patch and i've basically been her live-in reassurer for the past week. Not that i don't mind, but where, i ask, is the boyfriend? Hiding in his room because he is frightfully immature. It's a good thing she really likes him.

Anyways, there's a lot of awesome books coming out this year, and here's my pick of the multitude of upcoming releases:

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)

Shadow and Bone - Leigh Bardugo (June 5th)

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life—a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha…and the secrets of her heart.

Sounds good, right? I already have my copy reserved from my library.
So, what are you guys waiting on tghis fine Wednesday?
