Waiting on Wednesday #2 Air Awakens















Let me start off by saying I'm not a lurker, I promise! It took me about four months of blogging to finally join in with the Waiting on Wednesday feature, with every intention of making it a regular thing on the bookshelf. At which point my laptop promptly gave up the ghost and had to be shipped off to the PC doctors for repair, which is why I've been on radio silence for a couple of weeks. But, like a sign from the reading gods, it arrived back today
just in time for Wednesday! With a shiny new hard drive - good times - and minus several photo albums I never got around to backing up - bad times.

Since I'm not going to make my 2015 reading goal unless I quit my job and take up reading full time, I'm going to make more of an effort in 2016. And these are the beauties I'm going to be kicking off with in January. Thanks to Jill over at Breaking the Spine for hosting this weekly feature!
A library apprentice, a sorcerer prince, and an unbreakable magic bond. The Solaris Empire is one conquest away from uniting the continent, and the rare elemental magic sleeping in seventeen-year-old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl could shift the tides of war. Vhalla has always been taught to fear the Tower of Sorcerers, a mysterious magic society, and has been happy in her quiet world of books. But after she unknowingly saves the life of one of the most powerful sorcerers of them all - the Crown Prince Aldrik - she finds herself enticed into his world. Now she must decide her future: Embrace her sorcery and leave the life she’s known, or eradicate her magic and remain as she’s always been. And with powerful forces lurking in the shadows, Vhalla’s indecision could cost her more than she ever imagined.

I've heard so many good things about the Air Awakens series by Elise Kova and the book blurbs for all of them read like my new favourite things ever. Seriously they tick off everything on my fantasy read list! I know the first two books are already out, but I haven't bought them yet since they're on my The Broke and The Bookish secret santa wishlist so I've got to wait a while until I can read or buy them depending on what arrives, but one way or another, I'll be devouring them in January. And with the third in the pentalogy (thanks Google!) out in February, I should be all set. Kingdoms far far away, magic, romance...check, check and check. I can't wait to get started!

Has anyone read any of the Air Awakens series? How awesome?!

    1. Seriously,so many good things! I almost ordered the first book but in an unusually patient for me move I held out just in case I get it for christmas (Air Awakens and Fire Falling were one and two on the wishlist!). One way or another, it will be my first January read come hell or high water!

    1. Thanks Barb! I set my reading goal of 50 books read and reviewed in 2015 in August, so I think I set myself up to fail.

    1. I know, I suddenly seem to be seeing it everywhere even though there are very nearly three books in the series already out. On the plus side, I'll have plenty to read when I finally got started!

  4. I've been seeing this series everywhere! One of my bloggy friends has been hardcore fangirling over the series. I personally don't know much about the books! I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance!

    Have a fabulous week. :)

    1. Thanks, I'm hoping it's as good as everyone says, but then again I've heard so many great things I think this might be my new favourite thing ever!

    1. They're definitely worth checking out I think. I'd never heard of them and then all of a sudden I started seeing rave reviews so I had a look and think I'm hooked before I've even picked one up! I can't believe there are nearly three books in the series out already, but at least I won't have an unbearable wait for the next one for a little while.
