Waiting on Wednesday: The Cursed Queen by Sarah Fine

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where you talk about whatever book you are IMPATIENTLY WAITING for!

This week I am waiting for...

The Cursed Queen (The Impostor Queen, #2)Ansa has always been a fighter.

As a child, she fought the invaders who murdered her parents and snatched her as a raid prize. She fought for her place next to Thyra, the daughter of the Krigere Chieftain. She fought for her status as a warrior in her tribe: blood and victory are her way of life. But the day her Krigere cross the great lake and threaten the witch queen of the Kupari, everything changes.

Cursed by the queen with fire and ice, Ansa is forced to fight against an invisible enemy—the dark magic that has embedded itself deep in her bones. The more she seeks to hide it, the more dangerous it becomes. And with the Krigere numbers decimated and the tribe under threat from the traitorous brother of the dead Chieftain, Ansa is torn between her loyalty to the Krigere, her love for Thyra, and her own survival instincts.

With her world in chaos and each side wanting to claim her for their own, only one thing is certain: unless Ansa can control the terrible magic inside her, everything she’s fought for will be destroyed. 
Release Date: January 3rd 2017

Top Ten Tuesday: Thirteen Books That Have Been Sitting On My TBR Shelf FOREVER!

Hosted each week by The Broke and the Bookish, it's a meme for listing the top ten for everything bookish.

Okay, so I'm horrible at finishing series and my TBR list is over a thousand books long. So, there are a lot of books that I haven't gotten a chance to read. Here we go...

The Ones that Have LITERALLY Sat On My Shelf For More Than Four Years

The story is the same for all three of these. I read the previous book in the series and immediately bought the next book! I bought Spiral the day it came out (May 2012), Masquerade was bought either late 2011 or early 2012, and Betrayal was also bought May 2012. With all of these, I would need to reread the previous books in order to start up again. Which sucks for Spiral, since that's the 5th book in a series of bricks.

Some Other Series That I Never Seemed to Continue

It may be obvious by now that I am horrible at finishing series. I never bought any of these books, but all of these were added to my TBR shortly after I joined Goodreads in March of 2012, which means that I actually put off some of these books for more than 4 years (I have no idea how long for sure because before Goodreads was a dark time). Sad thing is, while some of these series were meh, I actually really enjoyed some of these..


There are some other books from early Goodreads that I haven't gotten a chance to read, but those are all stand alones or first books, so I don't feel as if hope is lost! Now, I bet there are plenty of bloggers who've had books sitting on their shelves for a decade or more, but before Goodreads, I spontaneously checked out books from the library and actually completed series!

So, what books have been on your TBR for a few years?
