Waiting on Wednesday (159)

Wednesday was created by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly post for you to share what upcoming books you can't wait for!

Absolutely loved reading Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine and was super excited when she revealed the next book in The Great Library Series, Paper and Fire.  The expected publication date for this is 5th July 2016.

With an iron fist, The Great Library controls the knowledge of the world, ruthlessly stamping out all rebellion, forbidding the personal ownership of books in the name of the greater good.

Jess Brightwell has survived his introduction to the sinister, seductive world of the Library, but serving in its army is nothing like he envisioned. His life and the lives of those he cares for have been altered forever. His best friend is lost, and Morgan, the girl he loves, is locked away in the Iron Tower and doomed to a life apart.

Embarking on a mission to save one of their own, Jess and his band of allies make one wrong move and suddenly find themselves hunted by the Library’s deadly automata and forced to flee Alexandria, all the way to London.

But Jess’s home isn’t safe anymore. The Welsh army is coming, London is burning, and soon, Jess must choose between his friends, his family, or the Library willing to sacrifice anything and anyone in the search for ultimate control…

What are you waiting on?

Brisbane Writer's Festival Recap

 Brisbane Writer's Festival was an awesome week of Authors, both published and upcoming, writers finding their feet, students who enjoy a good read.  It was a mix of everything I love about the festival!!

I did a couple of masterclasses during the week.  An editing class with Gavin Grant, and a Supernatural masterclass with Mike Jones.  Both were incredibly informative and fun!

On Saturday I went to see the panel This Sucks: Why we Will Never Tire of Vampires with  Holly Black, Kelly Link and Trent Jamieson.  It was amazing to hear each Author talk about this!

I had a bit of time spare before Cassandra Clare and Holly Black talked on Love YA so I sat in on David Burton, Eliza Henry Jones and Kristina Schulz talking about the pathways to publication.  It was a very interesting chat and I definitely took a lot away from this.

On Sunday, I went to Shadow Hunted. Ask me anything with Cassandra Clare.  There were so many questions and a lot of secrets revealed.

After Shadowhunted we got to listen to Trent Jamieson talk about his latest release Day Boy.  I bought this from his book release and had it signed then.  Loved the book.

At the end of the day we got to hear Holly Black and Cassandra Clare talk about their latest book Magisterium. 

Admittedly, I haven't finished reading Magisterium but it is pretty good so far, and from what I heard at the chat it's only going to get better!!

My partner met me after the panel and we had dinner.  It was a rather long day but definitely an enjoyable one.  The walk back to the car was very pretty.

Definitely looking forward to going to next years Brisbane Writer's Festival. 
In November the Toowoomba Writer's Festival will be happening.  I can't wait for the timetable to go up for this.

In My Mailbox (168)

In My Mailbox is a weekly post created by The Story Siren.

For Review:


The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

These are the books that I got from the Brisbane Writer's Festival.  I've been a bit slack.  I had hoped to have up my photos of the Authors we seen this week but it looks like it might happen this week coming. 
What did you get in your IMM?

MBOB: The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker.

Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
