Waiting on Wednesday

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi. Here's the synopsis:

The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, called "a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love".

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she'll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam - was wrong.

In Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi created a captivating and original story that combined the best of dystopian and paranormal and was praised by Publishers Weekly as "a gripping read from an author who's not afraid to take risks." 

The sequel, Unravel Me, blew readers away with heart-racing twists and turns, and New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia said it was "dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense." 

Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and climactic end.

The fangirl in me wants to scream "OMG, OMG, OMG" but I'm going to try and remain calm.  Tahereh is one of my favourite YA authors and I'm not kidding when I tell you that I would pre-order any book she wrote.  I'm a HUGE FAN of this series and I'll always remember being scared that it would turn into the X Men.  Oh, how wrong I was.  I cannot wait to read this but I will definitely make sure I read it slowly and savour every minute as this is the last in the series.  It won't stop me trying to convince her to write a Warner spin off though ;) My love for Warner knows no bounds. 
Pre - ordered already and I'm ready for it.  I've got several months to go yet though.

Ignite Me is published on 4th February, 2014 and whilst UK publishers have not yet realised how awesome this series is yet (despite me telling them) you will be able to get the book through all online sellers.  I imagine that once the UK does wake up to this series, they will marvel in their own discovery whilst I scream at the top of my lungs that I've been trying to tell them FOR FOREVER.


  1. I'm ridiculously excited about this. As I have the first two in paperback I'm going to try and wait for Ignite Me in PB too. I don't think I'll be able to hold out.

    1. OMG I love this series so much. I've pre ordered the hardback for my collection and I cannot wait. Another most anticipated read for next year!

  2. Oh man, it drives me MAD that the UK isn't big on this series. I just want a Destroy Me release. :(

    1. I know, right?! I freaking love this series and have tried hard to sell it to the UK market. You can get Destroy Me if you use and have a US account.
