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 Trial By Fire by the amazingly talented Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Published on June 14th in the US, there isn't even a Goodreads description for this book yet but everyone knows this is the sequel to Raised by Wolves which I enjoyed immensely. Unfortunately though, I never finished writing and posting my review due to some blogger FAIL last year. I'm hoping to rectify that very soon. Suffice to say that I thought it was one of the funniest YA books I'd ever read - full of intelligent humour that had me literally laughing out loud. Saying that though, there was a nice balance between humour and the serious parts of the book which I appreciated. So, if you haven't checked out Raised by Wolves yet, it comes highly recommended. And the covers are gorgeous, no?


  1. Funny! I like the sound of that. I haven't read a funny YA yet and had hoped to. Will definitely add to my list.

  2. Look forward to this one very nice cover!

  3. This is the first I've seen of that cover. Shockingly, I haven't read Raised By Wolves yet. I meant to read it before I met Jen in Bath over the summer, but it didn't happen. I really should get to it soon though.

  4. Viv - DEFINITELY read Raised by Wolves and I'd also check out Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins.

    Latishajean - I LOVE THIS COVER.

    Clover - I think you'll enjoy it!
