This week's pre-publication "can't wait to read" selection is...

All about Soundless...

From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore. 

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...

I just LOVE Richelle's writing and cannot wait for Soundless! 

What's your "waiting on" pick this week? 


  1. I haven't read anything by this author even though I think I own several of her books. I will have to look for this book. I can't wait for the new Ilona Andrews book - only a few more weeks left until its release!

    1. Oh Richelle is a phenomenal writer! Throughout the years I've heard a lot about Iiona Andrews, but I haven't read any of her books. Which one would you recommend I start with?

    2. The Kate Daniels series is phenomenal! The first book is Magic Bites as the series progresses the books just get better. They also wrote Burn for Me that came out last year which I love. I love everything the writing pair of Ilona Andrews writes. :)

    3. Thanks Carole! I will add them to my TBR pile! :)

  2. Great pick! I can't wait for this one either. I loved Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

    1. Yay! Maybe we can read this one together once it debuts! :)

  3. Ahhh!!! I want the ARC of this book! A world with no sounds!! This looks so interesting!
    Haniya (I am @booknauthors)

    1. Haniya, me too! I want this book so bad I will probably take the day off of work to buy it once it debuts! Let me know, maybe we can read it together and do a "shared" review or something? :)

  4. I haven't read all of Mead's books yet, but I'm really excited that she's finally writing a standalone! It's hard to commit to six books sometimes O_O

    1. Kayla,
      Yeah, I don't do too good at committing either. If I find a book that comes out that just happens to be a part of a series I will read it but I can tell you I have LOTS of unfinished series on my Goodreads account. ;)

All About That Cover: The Awakening (The Vampire Diaries #1) by L.J. Smith - An oldie but a goodie!

"All About That Cover" is a weekly feature that focuses on the differences between various book covers of the same book, such as cover changes, covers from different countries as well as special editions. 
Original Cover vs. TV tie-in edition

I don't know about y'all but I will always love the original cover. There's just something about YA book covers from the 90's. Notice the raven feather, too bad they didn't give Daemon shifting powers in the show!
