Can’t-Wait Wednesday – 14th February, 2018


Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s Can’t-Wait offering – Fire and Bone – Book 1 of the Otherborn series

#urban fantasy #YA #godpunk

“Gossip Girl meets Percy Jackson in the glitz and grit of L.A….”

In Hollywood’s underworld of demigods, druids, and ancient bonds, one girl has a dangerous future.

Sage is eighteen, down on her luck, and struggling to survive on the streets of Los Angeles. Everything changes the night she’s invited to a party—one that turns out to be a trap.

I liked the sound of this one – I don’t know much about Gossip Girl, but I really like what I’ve seen of the Percy Jackson series, since reading snippets of it to my granddaughter. Fire and Bone comes out later this month on 20th February, so I shan’t have too long to wait.

  1. Gossip Girl meets Percy Jackson? Now that has my attention. Gossip Girl was one of my favorite guilty pleasure TV shows and I very much enjoy the Percy Jackson series so the idea of a mashup really intrigues me. Great pick!

  2. The Percy Jackson series is a lot of fun. Bet you’d enjoy reading it on your own. I haven’t read any of the Gossip Girl books, but they were certainly popular when I worked at the library. Enjoy your pick!

  3. I have a copy of this, and I hope it’s my next read! (I’m so behind!!) I’ve read some of Rachel’s other books and really enjoyed them, and I’m really looking forward to this one. Plus I met her at Comic Con and she was super nice!

  4. I haven’t read Percy Jackson or know much about Gossip Girl, but I do like the sound of this one. I am looking forward to hear what you think of it when you get around to reading it 🙂

  5. Oh, AWESOME, AWESOME pick, Sara!!!! I don’t know much about “Gossip Girl” myself, but I LOVE that cover!! That girl just looks DANGEROUS. GREAT!!! I really enjoy reading novels with kick-butt female protagonists!! It sure looks like this one really ROCKS!! I’m adding this one to my GR shelves like, NOW!! Thanks for featuring this book!! ❤ ❤
