From Goodreads:
When Princess Winter was thirteen, the rumor around the Lunar court was that her glamour would soon be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana. In a fit of jealousy, Levana disfigured Winter. Four years later, Winter has sworn off the use of her glamour altogether. Despite her scars, Winter’s natural beauty, her grace, and her gentleness are winning admiration from the Lunar people that no amount of mind-control could achieve.

Winter despises her stepmother, but has never dreamed of standing up to her. That is until she realizes that she may be the only one with the power to confront the queen.

Can Cinder, Prince Kai, Scarlet, Wolf, Cress, Thorne, Princess Winter, and the palace guard Jacin find their happily ever afters? Fans will LOVE this amazing conclusion to the series.

Why I am waiting:
I know, I know. I have a while to wait for this one, but I couldn’t help choosing it for my inaugural “Waiting on Wednesday” post. After devouring the first three books of the series in January, I was devastated to find that this book wouldn’t come out until November. Maybe I would have waited and devoured the entire series in one sitting, but I doubt that. For now I will just have to fill my time with equally fantastic fiction until I can get my hands on this gem. I still have to read Fairest, after all.

What book are you dying to get your hands on? 



Book Haul: April


Welp, I am only a week in and I am already behind. It has been pretty busy around our house these days and I just haven’t found the time to finish Prudence. I will get that review up ASAP. For now, I have decided to post my April book haul.

I should tell you all that I don’t buy traditional books anymore. I received a first generation Nook Color for my birthday in 2009 and I haven’t looked back. Three readers later and I have settled on my 7″ Kindle Fire HD. I occasionally miss the new book smell, but the ability to read in bed without needing a book light (or waking my husband) is absolutely worth the sacrifice.

Now, on to the books.
