Waiting on Wednesday: Midnight Jewel by Richelle Mead

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Midnight Jewel by Richelle Mead!

Second book of The Glittering Court trilogy! (trilogy or series... I'm not sure)

Publication date: April 25th, 2017
Publisher: Razorbill

In the second installment of the bestselling Glittering Court series, Richelle Mead goes beyond the glitz and glamour, delving into the dark, political underbelly of their world through the eyes of one girl who dares to fight for her freedom.

A refugee of war, Mira was cast out of her home country and thrust into another, where the conditions were inhospitable at best. In a life-altering twist of fate, she is given the chance to escape once more, and she takes it, joining the Glittering Court.

For a select group of girls, the Glittering Court offers a shot at a life they’ve only ever dreamed of, one of luxury, glamour, and leisure. But for Mira, it means further persecution, not only from her fellow Glittering Court jewels, but from her suitors, as well--men she would potentially be expected to give her life to.

By day, she goes through the motions, learning the etiquette and customs that will help to earn her anonymity, even making a couple true friends in the process, the forthright ladies' maid Adelaide and the ambitious laundress Tamsin. But by night, Mira hatches a different plan entirely--one that, if exposed, could get her hanged in the highest court of Adoria.

Midnight Jewel is the extraordinary story of a girl with few options who courageously forges a new path, finding love, passion, lifelong friendships, and maybe even a way to freedom.

I remember doing the WoW for the first book last year and now I'm doing it for the second but I still haven't read the first because I literally have 227 books on my tbr list and I don't know where to start. This is depressing. Anyway, apparently in the series it's not a continuation of the story but the same story just told differently from another character's POV which is an interesting way of doing things... it could add much more depth to the story of the first book if they're all written well.

Have you read the first book? Did you like it?

Are you excited about Midnight Jewel?
