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.

The summary sounds very intriguing. The main figure who is not the usual beauty and who shows a visible lack of everything. I have not read the first book and the cover is not speaking to me either. But for some reason, the summary of this one made me curious. So perhaps that and its predecessor will find a place at my shelves and give me some reading pleasure – hopefully...

The Glass Queen
Author Gena Showalter
The Forest Of Good And Evil #2
Publishing Date September 29, 2020
Publisher Inkyard Press
Format Hardcover

Princess Ashleigh Charmaine is known as the Glass Princess, fragile enough to shatter with a whisper of wind. Born with a weak heart, she dreams of being treated like anyone else. Unlike her headstrong sisters, she received no magical ability at birth and lives every day expecting to die. Until an oracle announces that Ashleigh is fated to play the part of Cinderella, wed a handsome royal, and save the Kingdom of Sevon from the evil king and queen who once ruled the land. As war rages, Ashleigh begins to doubt her role in the fairy-tale prophecy. Animals despise her, she can´t carry a merry tune and she has zero social graces. Worse, the king she´s supposed to enchant is the newly crowned sovereign of the winged warriors known as the Avian … and he despises her, too. When Ashleigh develops a terrifying magical ability to commune with dragons and create fire from air – a power she cannot control – she must work with King Saxon to save their kingdoms and their lives. By the stroke of midnight, she must warm his icy heart … or forever break her own. Will Ashleigh ever become the queen she´s prophesied to be … or will she lose everything she´s come to love?

And what are you waiting for? Let me know your thoughts about this one or leave me the link to your WoW and I check it out.

Happy reading & waiting on



  1. Who wouldn't want to commune with dragons? Sounds fun. :) Neat cover too! .

    1. Talking with a dragon reminds me of the Eragon books.

  2. This sounds really interesting, especially the main character's ability to communicate with dragons. Makes me think of Game of Throne and the mother of dragons.
