Wishlist Wednesday #3

(Hosted by Pen to Paper)

Eight years after Graceling, Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck's reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle--disguised and alone--to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past.

Two thieves, who only steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck's reign. And one of them, with an extreme skill called a Grace that he hasn't yet identified, holds a key to her heart.
(Summary from Goodreads)

I've read Graceling and Fire, and I really liked them. I think it's almost safe to say that Graceling Realm is one of my favourite book series. I know that Bitterblue has been available to read since May last year, but the reason I haven't read it yet is that it so far hasn't been published in Swedish. Usually this wouldn't be a problem for me - I'd just read it in English - but I bought and read Graceling and Fire in Swedish, and so I have to do the same with Bitterblue. It's an annoying kind of OCD, but not really (I don't have OCD, at least not that I know of) thing, that you probably know of if you're subscribed to me on YouTube. Luckily Bitterble is going to be published here in Sweden on Friday next week so the wait is almost over.


  1. I definitely have to buy this one! I loved Bitterblue in Graceling so I really need to get this. I wasn't too fussed on Graceling but I think I'll read it again soon because I should love it as I love fantasy! And I love that cover it is beautiful!
