Waiting on Wednesday! (Books I Can't Wait For)
Waiting on Wednesday in a weekly meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that lets us gush over books we just can’t WAIT to get our hands on!
I've got quite a few books that I'm waiting on! But I narrowed it down to two for my first post.
My first book that I can't wait for is The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy. I totally fell for Prince Liam, Prince Frederic, Prince Duncan, and Prince Gustav in the first book (The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom). As a child, I always wondered whey all the Prince's were just named Prince Charming. It made no sense to me. So this book really answered that question. As soon as I got done with the first one I was already looking for when the second one was being published. I have to wait until April 30, 2013.
With the second book, I'm waiting for you might notice a theme for this post. It is The Runaway King by Jennifer Nielsen. When I started the first book, The False Prince, I could not put it down until I finished it. I was captivated by the story of grooming an orphan to assume the role of the missing prince. I heard about the book on Twitter and I am so glad that I listened to the recommendations.
