Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Beckoning Shadow
(The Beckoning Shadow #1)
by Katharyn Blair
Expected publication: July 2nd 2019 by Katherine Tegen Books
The Magicians meets Fight Club in this heart-stopping contemporary fantasy stand-alone about a teen girl with special powers who seeks redemption through a dangerous tournament that guarantees the winner a chance to undo the past. Perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare and The Young Elites, and written by debut author Katharyn Blair.
Vesper Montgomery can summon your worst fear and turn it into a reality—but she’s learned the hard way that it’s an addicting and dangerous power. One wrong move and you could hurt someone you love.
But when she earns a spot in the Tournament of the Unraveling, where competitors battle it out for a chance to rewrite the past, Vesper finally has a shot to reverse the mistakes that have changed her forever. She turns to Sam Hardy, a former MMA fighter who’s also carrying a tragedy he desperately wants to undo. However, helping heal Sam’s heart will mean breaking her own, and the competition forces her to master her powers—powers she has been terrified of since they destroyed her life.
While I was setting up this post I realized that I could grab this on Edelweiss. I have been trying to not grab as many ARCs especially ARCs that are a book 1 but I broke down and downloaded it because I just can’t wait. I still needed to share this book with you all, if you haven’t seen it. This is another of my most anticipated reads for 2019, plus that cover! The coloring is gorgeous, if I love this book when I do read it I plan to grab a physical copy.
Anything you are currently waiting for?
Have a great day and Happy Reading!
