Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Wishful Endings. Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on. This week’s pick is:
The Girl King by Mimi Yu
All hair the Girl King.
Sisters LU AND Min have always understood their places as princesses of the Empire, Lu knows she is destined to become the dynasty’s first female ruler, while Min is resigned to a life in her shadow. Ten their father declares their male cousin Set the heir instead—a betrayal that sends the sisters down two very different paths.
Determined to reclaim her birthright, Lu goes on the run. She needs an alley—and an arm—if she is to succeed. Her quest leads her to Nokhai, the last surviving wolf shapeshifter. Nok wants to keep his identity secret, but finds himself forced into an uneasy alliance with the girl whose family killed everyone he ever loved…
Alone in the volatile court, Min’s hidden power awakens—a forbidden, deadly magic that could secure Set’s reign…or allow Min to claim the throne herself. But there can only be one Emperor, and the sisters’ greatest enemy could turn out to be each other.
Why I’m Waiting:
This one caught my attention because of the battle for the crown. I liked that it was supposed to be given to a girl and that when it is taken away she (and possibly her sister) fight for it. Plus wolf shapeshifter….yes please!
