Waiting on Wednesday is a popular weekly meme that was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It’s where you spotlight a book that you’re really excited for and are eagerly anticipating. So what am I dying for this week? It’s the sequel to an amazing, gritty, convoluted novel set against the backdrop of the Roman Empire called
An Ember in the Ashes #2
Author: Sabaa Tahir
Series: An Ember in the Ashes #2
The book will pick up the story of the heroine Laia, the undercover rebel who is fighting to protect her family, and Elias, a reluctant soldier for the empire, as they travel north to free Laia’s brother from prison and try to evade the empire’s armies.
Description taken from Goodreads.
When I read AN EMBER THE ASHES, I liked it so much that I gave away a signed copy so that I could share it with someone else, and I can’t wait for the sequel. I mean–AN EMBER IN THE ASHES #2! It’s brilliant already! (✪㉨✪)
And you know, if Amy Poehler and Tina Fey approve, it will be the grandest. I loved AN EMBER IN THE ASHES so much, it’ll probably end up as one of my favorite reads of 2015, and it has definitely heightened my expectations for Sabaa Tahir. I’ve really come to care about the characters and world that Tahir has crafted, and I’m so looking forward to see what happens later on.
But… April 2016? That’s so far away…
Well, I guess it’s time to reread AN EMBER IN THE ASHES again until #2 comes out! Until then, I’m out, fellow Emberlings :). And if you haven’t read it, READ IT. If you’re still not convinced about the coolness of it, check out my full review here!
