Waiting on Wednesday: Quintana of Charyn and Ink

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Here are my WoW picks this week (click title for the Goodreads page):

Quintana of Charyn (Lumatere Chronicles, #3)
Publisher: Candlewick
Pre-Order: Amazon | Book Depository
The climactic conclusion of Printz Award winner Melina Marchetta’s epic fantasy trilogy! 

Separated from the girl he loves and has sworn to protect, Froi and his companions travel through Charyn searching for Quintana and building an army that will secure her unborn child’s right to rule. While in the valley between two kingdoms, Quintana of Charyn and Isaboe of Lumatere come face-to-face in a showdown that will result in heartbreak for one and power for the other. The complex tangle of bloodlines, politics, and love introduced in Finnikin of the Rock and Froi of the Exiles coalesce into an engrossing climax in this final volume.
 I cannot believe I forgot to add this on my most anticipated list when it should have been tied with Clockwork Princess and Out of Breath at the top. Quintana of Charyn is the third book and final book of one of my all-time favorite series, Lumatere Chronicles. Froi of the Exile's ending killed me and I wanted so badly to fly to Australia when the book came out there last year. Everyone who have read Froi probably get how much I'm dying to read this book.

Ink (The Paper Gods, #1)
Release date: June 25th, 2013
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pre-Order: Amazon | Book Depository
"I looked down at the paper, still touching the tip of my shoe. I reached for it, flipping the page over to look. 

Scrawls of ink outlined a drawing of a girl lying on a bench. 

 A sick feeling started to twist in my stomach, like motion sickness. 

And then the girl in the drawing turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine. "

On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building. 

Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they'll both be targets. 

Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.

Look at that cover.. so gorgeous. Based on that tidbit of Amanda's writing in the summary, I'm going to have a great time reading this. 
And a book set in Japan? Count me in!

  3. Both sound good! I hadn't heard of the Lumatere Chronicles, but I'll have to check it out. Great picks :)

  4. I've heard many good things about Finnikin of the Rock but the books are out of my comfort zone. Might pick them up some day. However, I love the idea of Ink and looking forward to it.

    Here's my WoW!
