Waiting on Wednesday – Week 166

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight upcoming reads that I'm DYING to get my hands on!

This week's WoW is:
Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.

Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.


As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.

While I haven't read Pride and Prejudice, I've seen the TV series and the movie (the latter several, SEVERAL times), and I kinda do see the connection in the synopsis. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to reading this one, and not just because there's an absolutely GORGEOUS cover. I mean, look at it! If that doesn't make you wanna go grab a copy immediately (or pre-order one)... Can't wait to start this one!

What are you waiting on?

  1. I started this one, but I'm not enjoying it, sadly. I don't even know if I'm gonna be able to finish it. Hope it works better for you!!

  2. I actually didn't like it as much as I'd hoped! It got three stars from me, but on the 2.5-star side. I hope you enjoy it more than I did, when you get the chance to read it!
