Waiting on Wednesday – August 21, 2019

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!

The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young

The Girl the Sea Gave Back

From Goodreads:

The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep.

For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols and staves inked over every inch of her skin mark her as one who can cast the rune stones and see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east bury their age-old blood feud and join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

For the first time in generations, the leaders of the Svell are divided. Should they maintain peace or go to war with the allied clans to protect their newfound power? And when their chieftain looks to Tova to cast the stones, she sets into motion a series of events that will not only change the landscape of the mainland forever but will give her something she believed she could never have again—a home.

  1. I’m honestly so excited to read this. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an ARC, but because of other reading commitments, I had to push it back til next month. But I am squealing over your review and I am itching to get to it ASAP ❤

    1. Aww thank you! I hope you enjoy it. It isn’t as good as Sky in the Deep, but I still really enjoyed it and getting to know some characters better who showed their faces prior. I hope you enjoy it! Can’t wait to hear what you think!
