Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Trial by Fire

Author: Josephine Angelini
The Worldwalker Trilogy
Expected: September 2nd, 2014
Feiwel and Friends

Description from GoodReads:

   This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying experiences that others in her hometown of Salem take for granted, which is why she is determined to enjoy her first high school party with her best friend and longtime crush, Tristan. But after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class, Lily wishes she could just disappear.

   Suddenly, Lily is in a different Salem—one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruelest of them all is Lillian . . . Lily's other self in this alternate universe.

   What makes Lily weak at home is what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. In this confusing world, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone and a love she never expected.

Why I Want It:

  I have been and always will be a greek mythology fan, so I just had to pick up Josephine's other series, The Starcrossed Trilogy. It was a new and unique read, so I just knew I had to read any more of Josephine's books that were to come. I also tend to be a sucker for witch books, so here we are!

Why You Should Want it:

   I honestly find the thought of having another you in a different universe fascinating, so why would you? They could be the totally opposite of you, or maybe totally they could be just like you but in a totally different world. The possibilities are endless. You should want to read this book just because you'd like to see what Lily's other self is like, but you know wanting to read this book because of witches is cool too(;

   That was my Waiting on Wednesday for this week, what are you waiting on this week? Will you be picking up Trial by Fire in September? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I've heard many different opinions from the books as well, but I remain optimistic!

      For GFC, I seem to have the worst kind of luck. It just hates me. Thanks for the follow though! I'll follow you back on Bloglovin!
