[Waiting On Wednesday: Desert Tales]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Desert Tales"
Author: Melissa Marr
Release Date: October 8th, 2013


Return to the world of Melissa Marr's bestselling series and discover how the events of Wicked Lovely set a different faery tale in motion. . . . Originally presented as a manga series and now available for the first time as a stand-alone novel, Desert Tales combines tentative romance, outward strength, and inner resolve in a faery story of desert and destiny.

The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the Faerie Courts—and that's exactly why Rika chose it as her home. The once-mortal faery retreated to the desert's isolation after decades of carrying winter's curse inside her body. But her seclusion—and the freedom of the desert fey—is threatened by the Summer King's newfound strength. And when the manipulations of her trickster friend, Sionnach, thrust Rika into a new romance, she finds new power within herself—and a new desire to help Sionnach protect the desert fey and mortals alike. The time for hiding is over.

I had no idea that this book was going to exist, but when I found out about it I went and added it to my TBR list!  I was a HUGE fan of the Wicked Lovely books (except for that middle book :/ ) so I can't wait to dive into this one too!

What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

I read the first Wicked Lovely book and I really liked it but the sequel I was like Eh? I never read the 3rd >.< I don't even think I finished the sequel now that I think about it lol. But it was like 5+ years ago.
