Waiting On Wednesday: The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano 
Expected publication: October 24th 2017 by Balzer + Bray

A banished princess.
A deadly curse.
A kingdom at war.

Wil Heidle, the only daughter of the king of the world’s wealthiest nation, has grown up in the shadows. Kept hidden from the world in order to serve as a spy for her father—whose obsession with building his empire is causing a war—Wil wants nothing more than to explore the world beyond her kingdom, if only her father would give her the chance.

Until one night Wil is attacked, and she discovers a dangerous secret. Her touch turns people into gemstone. At first Wil is horrified—but as she tests its limits, she’s drawn more and more to the strange and volatile ability. When it leads to tragedy, Wil is forced to face the destructive power within her and finally leave her home to seek the truth and a cure.

But finding the key to her redemption puts her in the path of a cursed prince who has his own ideas for what to do with her power.

With a world on the brink of war and a power of ultimate destruction, can Wil find a way to help the kingdom that’s turned its back on her, or will she betray her past and her family forever?

I'm so very excited for The Glass Spare! I don't know if you guys know this but I'm a HUGE fan of the author's Chemical Garden Trilogy. The first book, Wither, will always be one of my favorite books ever, but after those books I kind of lost track of Lauren's writing so I'm hoping to get back to her with this book. And doesn't it just sound amazing? :D


  1. Awesome cover and first time I'm seeing this. Wonderful feature this week! Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Such a cool cover! This book sounds really awesome, so I will definitely be checking it out :D I hope you enjoy reading it!

  3. I like the cover! Destefano's books are incredibly hit-or-miss for me, so I might pass on this one. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Stephanie. =)

    Check out my WoW post!

  4. Oh! I didn't know she had a new book coming out, I rather enjoyed her last series.
    My wow

  5. I haven't read any of her books but I probably should start?? Maybe this will be my first read of hers. XD

  6. Oh, sounds good!
    I'm just really cautious to anticipate this book since I didn't really love one of the books I read by Lauren DeStefano. I'll have to wait and see some reviews before I decide whether to pick this one up or not ;)
    I hope you'll love it!
