Waiting on Wednesday – Week 170

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

This week's WoW is:
The Secret Horses of Briar Hill by Megan Shepherd

There are winged horses that live in the mirrors of Briar Hill hospital. In the mirrors that line its grand hallways, which once belonged to a princess. In those that reflect the elegant rooms, now filled with sick children. It is her secret.

One morning, when Emmaline climbs over the wall of the hospital’s abandoned gardens, she discovers something incredible: a white horse with broken wings has left the mirror-world and entered her own. 

Tucked into the garden’s once-gleaming sundial, Emmaline finds a letter from the Horse Lord. He is hiding the wounded white horse, named Foxfire, from a dark and sinister force—a Black Horse who hunts by colorless moonlight. If Emmaline is to keep the Black Horse from finding her new friend, she must collect colorful objects with which to blind him. But where can Emmaline find color when her world is filled with gray?

This one has been on my to-read/wishlist shelf for ages, but I had no idea that it was by Megan Shepherd! I'll read anything by Shepherd. While I haven't read her latest series The Cage, the Madman's Daughter trilogy was AWESOME (read my reviews for book one, two and three). I'm so excited that she's written a middle grade novel, and it's one that sounds really different. Can't wait!

What are you waiting on?


  1. Oh, wow. I don't think I've heard of such a story before. I hope you'll enjoy this one!

  2. I like her writing. I hope this is another winner!

  3. DID IT SAY HORSES?! Say no more it's on my tbr
