Waiting On Wednesday #133: A HISTORY OF GLITTER AND BLOOD by Hannah Moskowitz (YA)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!!
The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!!
And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 

What I'm currently waiting for... 

by Hannah Moskowitz
Expected release date: August 4th, 2015
Published by Chronicle Books
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
Format: Hardcover, eBook


Sixteen-year-old Beckan and her friends are the only fairies brave enough to stay in Ferrum when war breaks out. Now there is tension between the immortal fairies, the subterranean gnomes, and the mysterious tightropers who arrived to liberate the fairies.

But when Beckan's clan is forced to venture into the gnome underworld to survive, they find themselves tentatively forming unlikely friendships and making sacrifices they couldn't have imagined. As danger mounts, Beckan finds herself caught between her loyalty to her friends, her desire for peace, and a love she never expected. 

This stunning, lyrical fantasy is a powerful exploration of what makes a family, what justifies a war, and what it means to truly love.


First... because it is a fantasy duology about fairies!
That also happens to mention gnomes and "mysterious tightropers"!!!

Second... "true love"!
I'm a sucker for a good romance!!!

And lastly... because this book sounds like no other!

SO, what are you waiting for this week???
