I can't wait for...
The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic
 by Leigh Bardugo

Expected Publication: September 26, 2017
by Macmillan

Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price. 

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love. 

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange--to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse. 

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page,  culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves. 

I don't qualify as a dedicated fan yet since I've only read the Six of Crows duology but I loved them and love the idea of these short stories! Hopefully there's no requirement to have read her previous works but I think not. 
Anyway, I've been so caught up in fantasy series lately that I could use some short stories or a good standalone fantasy. 

What book can't you wait for?


  1. Hopefully you'll enjoy it when you read it!

  2. I love a good short story, and a fantasy one too? Woot! This does look good. And with Bardugo coming to our area next month I'm keen to finally read one of her books!

  3. Yaaasss, I can't wait to read this book! The sampler was not nearly enough. I'm sure the stories will be so wonderful. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Stacy. =)

    Check out my WoW post!

  4. Such a pretty cover. Nice pick. I think this one is getting tons of buzz.

  5. Dying for this one too! Only a few more weeks... :)
