Waiting on Wednesday #54: The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic
Author:  Leigh Bardugo
Expected Publication Date:  September 26th, 2017

Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.

I have always loved reading folktales and fairy tales and having a collection of tales that are based off of various myths and folklore is definitely right up my alley!

So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!


  1. I have not read the Grisha books, but I loved Bardugo's writing in SoC, and fairy tales and folklore are always enchanting for me.
