Waiting on Wednesday: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released!

This week's upcoming book spotlight is:

The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
Publication Date: September 26th, 2017
The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic

From Goodreads:

"Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.

Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.

Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.

This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves."

I am so excited for this gorgeous book of magical Grishaverse tales! The samples of the illustrations that I've seen are so beautiful and I am sure that the stories are going to be incredible additions to this world Bardugo has created. This one can't come fast enough!

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?
