Waiting on Wednesday (85): Winter

Winter by Marissa Meyer
Series: The Lunar Chronicles #4
Release Date: November 12, 2015
Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
        Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
        Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?
I'm sure everyone and their mother has been saying this for a while now, but, and here is my fandom mixing in the heat of the moment, WINTER IS COMING! Praise the lord!

Waiting on Wednesday (84): Queen

Queen by Aimee Carter
Series: The Blackcoat Rebellion #3
Release Date: November 24, 2015
        Kitty Doe is a Blackcoat rebel and a former captive with a deadly connection to the most powerful and dangerous man in the country, Prime Minister Daxton Hart. Forced to masquerade as Daxton's niece, Lila Hart, Kitty has helped the Blackcoats take back the prison known as Elsewhere. But Daxton has no intention of ceding his position of privilege—or letting Kitty expose his own masquerade. Not in these United States, where each person's rank means the difference between luxury and poverty, freedom and fear...and ultimately, between life and death.
        To defeat the corrupt government, Kitty must expose Daxton's secret. Securing evidence will put others in jeopardy, including the boy she's loved forever and an ally she barely trusts. For months, Kitty's survival has hinged on playing a part. Now she must discover who she truly wants to be, and whether the new world she and the rebels are striving to create has a place in it for her after all.
Oh gosh, these covers just get better and better! Aimee Carter, please don't fail me now with this final book. Give me bamf Katie who will topple this government and turn everything on its head. I wait patiently for November.
