Waiting on Wednesday *118*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

The Girl Who Raced Fairyland All The Way Home
by Catherynne M. Valente (Fairyland #5)
Expected Publication: March 1st 2016 by Feiwell and Friends

Quite by accident, September has been crowned as Queen of Fairyland - but she inherits a Kingdom in chaos. The magic of a Dodo's egg has brought every King, Queen, or Marquess of Fairyland back to life, each with a fair and good claim on the throne, each with their own schemes and plots and horrible, hilarious, hungry histories. In order to make sense of it all, and to save their friend from a job she doesn't want, A-Through-L and Saturday devise a Royal Race, a Monarckical Marathon, in which every outlandish would-be ruler of Fairyland will chase the Stoat of Arms across the whole of the nation - and the first to seize the poor beast will seize the crown. Caught up in the madness are the changelings Hawthorn and Tamburlaine, the combat wombat Blunderbuss, the gramophone Scratch, the Green Wind, and September's parents, who have crossed the universe to find their daughter...
Granted, I still have some catching up to do with the series - I've only read the first two volumes - but I own all of the rest to date. After the fourth book came out featuring a different protagonist, I was worried that I wouldn't get to spend any more time with my beloved September, but she's back front and center here for the conclusion to this enchanting series! I can't wait to know everything about her journey up to this point so I can be ready for her grand finale :)

Any fans of this series out there? Are you looking forward to the finale book?
What's your favorite installment in the series so far?
Don't forget to link me up to your WoW post :)


  1. I have not read this series yet, but it looks like one I would really enjoy

    My WoW

  2. I was supposed to start this series this month but then started reading something else. (Happens all the time XD) I hope to read at least book 1 next month and I'm actually pretty excited since this series does get great reviews :) I hope you enjoy this installment!

  3. I read the first book and never continued. I really want to and hope that I can catch up soon. I really did enjoy the writing and I know I can get the first 3 from my local library so I assume they will get the last one and this one too! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I am embarrassed to confess I've never read anything by Valente. I'd love to start with these books though, I've heard so many great things!

  6. I'm not familiar with this series, but it looks super cute! I've been meaning to read more fantasy middle grade, too. :) (I haven't talked to you in forever, Micheline!!)
