Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event by Jill of Breaking the Spine highlighting anticipating new releases that we’re excited for.
One book that I can’t wait for release is The Paper Machine and it’s thanks to Skye Scribblings that I found out about this book on goodreads! This is a magical and whimsical story that reminds me of The Night Circus and Etiquette & Espionage together. And I absolutely adore the cover! Here’s the story:
Ceony Twill graduated at the top of her class at Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined and accepts an apprenticeship at the cottage of Magician Emery Thane. Ceony is bonded to paper and it is her only magic. But she learns strange and marvelous spells including animating paper creatures and reading fortunes. Soon Ceony learns how dangerous forbidden magic is.
Then an Excisioner, a practitioner of dark magic invades the cottage and rips out the heart of the Thane. So Ceony must face the dark magician to rescue her teacher’s life while going on a remarkable journey to retrieve her teacher’s heart before it’s too late.
