Waiting on Wednesday #18

Waiting On Wednesday hosted by Breaking The Spine

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

Gilded by Christina L. Farley

Set For Release On: March 1st, 2014

Summary From Goodreads

Sixteen-year-old Jae Hwa Lee is a Korean-American girl with a black belt, a deadly proclivity with steel-tipped arrows, and a chip on her shoulder the size of Korea itself. When her widowed dad uproots her to Seoul from her home in L.A., Jae thinks her biggest challenges will be fitting in to a new school and dealing with her dismissive Korean grandfather. Then she discovers that a Korean demi-god, Haemosu, has been stealing the soul of the oldest daughter of each generation in her family for centuries. And she’s next.

But that’s not Jae’s only problem.

There’s also Marc. Irresistible and charming, Marc threatens to break the barriers around Jae’s heart. As the two grow closer, Jae must decide if she can trust him. But Marc has a secret of his own—one that could help Jae overturn the curse on her family for good. It turns out that Jae’s been wrong about a lot of things: her grandfather is her greatest ally, even the tough girl can fall in love, and Korea might just be the home she’s always been looking for.


I’m sure plenty of you have seen this book around on other WoW posts or anything connected to 2014 debut authors, but I HAD to pick it. Why? Look at that freaking amazing cover! *ogles it* O_O

Seriously though, the book sounds like it has tons of potential and there aren’t enough books set in Korea that are YA, so yes please! Plus, a bad-ass black-belted, arrow shooting, demi-god fighting female MC? Done. Sold. I can’t wait for this book, it looks fantastic, and as long as that romance is done well *fingers crossed* then I’m sure to love it. ^.^

Does Gilded sound like a book you would enjoy? Have you heard of it before, and what do you think about the premise? What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^

  4. I actually haven’t seen this one until now! But you’re right it does sound amazing! There aren’t many ya novels set in Korea so that’s even better! I’m really excited about Gilded and I’m adding it to my TBR right now! Thanks for sharing an awesome choice! Hope you’re having a fab week so far! 🙂
