Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic

Amber the Blonde Writer - Can't Wait Wednesday - The Language of Thorns

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme that focuses on the yet-to-be released books we're waiting for and is hosted by Wishful Endings. It's inspired by Waiting on Wednesday by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm highlighting an anthology about folklore and fairy tales!

Goodreads' summary:

Amber the Blonde Writer - Can't-Wait Wednesday - The Language of ThornsLove speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.

Why I'm Waiting:

Leigh Bardugo hooked me at the beginning of last year with Six of Crows. Her mastery of character development continues to awe and inspire me, even outside of writing. Not only that, but if there's one YA genre I love more than fantasy, it's fairy tales and their retellings. I can't wait to see what Bardugo does with her fantasy worlds!
