is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy. There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

My first Leia Stone book. Currently, I am reading the manuscript of Fallen Academy Year One (its original title) with some others in a reading round over at Lesejury. The manuscript shows that there must be a map in the hardcover edition, and I am looking forward to holding the printed edition in my hands. Therefore, this week I present you Celestial City aka Fallen Academy Year One by Leia Stone.

Having black wings is not normal. Selling her soul to the demons was a mistake. Lincoln Grey is the biggest asshole she´s ever met … but not falling love with him might prove impossible. When angels fell from the sky to war with the demons that ravaged Earth, their combined powers infected humanity. Now, the humans are assigned one of two fates, being either demon gifted, or angel blessed. After wings sprout from Brielle´s back at her awakening ceremony, she´s sure she´s an angel blessed celestial. It´s not until she sees black wings that she realizes something is terribly wrong. Having sold her contract at a young age to save her father´s life means she should be bound for Tainted Academy. That is, until a fallen angel unexpectedly fights for her to be accepted into Fallen Academy, the elite school for those that inhabit Angel City. She´s immediately matched with her impossible handsome celestial teacher Lincoln Grey. Laying eyes on him, her first thought is that her time at the academy might actually be fun, but this theory quickly fades when she and Lincoln clash on day one. To further prove her admission into Fallen Academy is cursed, the entire school is thrown into chaos when an Abrus demon reveals that he knows Brielle´s secret. Now, above all else, Lincoln must fight to protect her. To his surprise, the only thing more difficult than trying to save her … is trying not to fall for her.
