Can’t-Wait Wednesday – 4th April, 2018


40276268 – vintage old pocket watch and book

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 – Song of Blood & Stone – Book 1 of the Earthsinger Chronicles by L. Penelope


#adventure #fantasy #romance #YA

Orphaned and alone, Jasminda lives in a land where cold whispers of invasion and war linger on the wind. Jasminda herself is an outcast in her homeland of Elsira, where her gift of Earthsong is feared. When ruthless soldiers seek refuge in her isolated cabin, they bring with them a captive–an injured spy who threatens to steal her heart.

I picked this one up because I liked the look of the cover – having all the depth of a pavement puddle – and thought the premise looked interesting. I have cut short the rather chatty blurb and am looking forward to reading this one later on in the month – hopefully when the sun is shining and it stops raining!

    • That’s a relief – because I find myself confessing over and over again that it was the cover that first drew me – and thinking ‘You are SUCH an airhead!’

    • It does look good, doesn’t it? I’m hoping it lives up to that amazing cover:). You’re very welcome regarding the blurting blurb – it seems to be rather a thing, these days…

  1. The publisher sent me an ARC of this one and I’m excited to check it out too. This was an SPFBO book as well, I believe! It wasn’t one of the BiblioSanctum’s books, but I remember seeing it one of the other nine blogs’ batches. So happy more SPFBO authors are getting noticed!

  2. OMG!!!! I LOVE that cover!! It’s absolutely STUNNING!! And the plot is SO AWESOME!!!!! You picked a REAL winner here, Sara!! I’ve already added it to my Goodreads shelves! Looks like I’ll devour it as soon as it releases!! YAAAAAAAASSSS!!!! Thanks for putting this on my galactic radar!!! ❤ ❤

    Thanks as well for beaming over to my planet, er, blog, and commenting on my own CWW post!! HUGS!!! <3<3 ❤ 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. This was an SPFBO book – not one of mine though (Fantasy Faction). I love the cover and think it might have been entered into the cover competition which is why it seems so familiar. I really do fancy giving this a go and saw it on ‘read now’ over on NG but I have so many books already for May so don’t think I should.
    Hope you love it.
    Lynn 😀
