|Why the WOW: How about a book just around the corner!
Oh, Melina Marchetta, these characters and the world they live in is awesome! This series has the best ensemble of characters, each play an intergral part in the story. I can't wait for this final instalment and catch up with Finnikin and Froi, but it will be bittersweet. I'm definitely on a fantasy kick, and this one will fly past a lot of books on my TBR list come April.
Note for anyone participating in an A-Z Challenge for 2013, this is perfect for that tricky Q category. As soon as I saw the title last year, I made a mental note for my challenge.
What are you waiting for?
