Title: Blue Lily, Lily Blue
Series: Raven Cycle 3
Author: Maggie Stiefvater
Expected Publication: October 28, 2014
(sadly, there isn't a summary yet T.T)
Why I am looking forward to this: I am madly, deeply in love with those covers, and the same goes for Stiefvater's writing. I haven't had time to read The Dream Thieves yet, but I want to to that before this little baby here relaeses, so I can dive into it right away. This is among the top 3 most anticipated releases for me this year, and October is still suuuuuch a long wait... T.T
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
"But what of your story, Clarence? I am certain there is more to it then swan kings and magic crowns." [20%]
Oh, if only he knew! x) It's pretty good so far, I'm soooo glad I got approved for it on Netgalley!! It reads very much like a historical with this kind of vocab, I have to look up a word here and there, but I love it. Reminds me of reading Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, hehe. There wasn't any pirate action yet, but just reading about their clothes makes you think of the Pirates of the Carribean movies.
The House of the Four Winds (One Dozen Daughters 1)

Dominick leads the now-outlawed crew in search of treasure in the secret pirate haven known as The House of Four Winds. They encounter the sorceress Shamal, who claims Dominick for her own—but Clarice has fallen hard for Dominick and won’t give him up without a fight.
