Waiting on Wednesday (72)

Ruined (Ruined #1) by Amy Tintera

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This book sounds really good. I'm looking forward to listening to this book in audiobook. Luckily it will be released in the next couple of weeks so I don't have to wait long.

Expected Publication Date: May 3rd, 2016

Synopsis: (Taken from Goodreads)
Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war. She lacks the powers of her fellow Ruined. Worst of all, she witnessed her parents’ brutal murders and watched helplessly as her sister, Olivia, was kidnapped.

But because Em has nothing, she has nothing to lose. Driven by a blind desire for revenge, Em sets off on a dangerous journey to the enemy kingdom of Lera. Somewhere within Lera’s borders, Em hopes to find Olivia. But in order to find her, Em must infiltrate the royal family.

In a brilliant, elaborate plan of deception and murder, Em marries Prince Casimir, next in line to take Lera’s throne. If anyone in Lera discovers Em is not Casimir’s true betrothed, Em will be executed on the spot. But it’s the only way to salvage Em’s kingdom and what is left of her family.

Em is determined to succeed, but the closer she gets to the prince, the more she questions her mission. Em’s rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life—and her family—on the line, love could be Em’s deadliest mistake.

Stacking the Shelves (62)

Welcome to this week's Stacking the Shelves hosted byTynga`s Reviews. It features books I bought or received for review each week. It is about adding books to my book shelf whether it by physical, virtual or audio. Thanks for stopping by!

Books purchased at Chapters Indigo:
The Siren by Keira Cass
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

I was so happy when I ordered these books and I am so excited to read them. Unfortunately these are the last books I will be buying for a bit. No physical books, e-books, or audiobooks. Yikes! It's going to be so hard. I've put myself on a book buying ban because I realized I was buying more books that I could read. Hence the ban for 1-2 months. To tell you the truth I doubt I will last that long but I'm hoping I can hold off. I bought these books in February and it came earlier this week because of the March release of Lady Midnight. This will be the last Stacking the Shelves until I start buying books again :(

On another note, I'm currently reading The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) in audiobook format and I'm loving it. The narrators are making this story come to life for me. Hopefully I will be able to finish it late this week. 

I hope everyone has a good week!

Lia and Rafe have escaped Venda and the path before them is winding and dangerous - what will happen now? This third and final book in The Remnant Chronicles is not to be missed.
