Waiting on Wednesday (49) The Raven king

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're excited about!

This week I'm waiting on...

The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4)Title: The Raven King
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Pages: 448
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Release Date: April 26, 2016

The fourth and final installment in the spellbinding series from the irrepressible, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.

All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love's death. She doesn't believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

In a starred review for Blue Lily, Lily Blue, Kirkus Reviews declared: "Expect this truly one-of-a-kind series to come to a thundering close."

I like how the synopsis really isn't that. There's like nothing about it.

So I'm usually a lot better at picking books that are farther out than this. But I'm lazy this week. And I'm super excited for it. I have UK paperback pre-ordered (because all my copies of her books are paperback and they need to match). I also have the audiobook pre-ordered so I can get to it right away.

Maggie is also doing a signing for her tour really near me in June. So keep an eye out for a giveaway of a signed hardcover!

What are you waiting on?
