Waiting on Wednesday: The Atrocities by Jeremy C. Shipp & The Queen Underneath by Stacey Filak

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 Atrocities by Jeremy C. Shipp
Publication Date: April 17th, 2018 Publishing
104 pages
Pre-order: Amazon Book Depository 
From Goodreads:

The Atrocities
"When Isabella died, her parents were determined to ensure her education wouldn’t suffer. 

But Isabella’s parents had not informed her new governess of Isabella’s… condition, and when Ms Valdez arrives at the estate, having forced herself through a surreal nightmare maze of twisted human-like statues, she discovers that there is no girl to tutor. 

Or is there…?"

I'm always up for a good ghost story, especially when it's set at a large estate and has a governess in it. It's so trope-y/cliche'd and I love it.


The Queen Underneath
Publication Date: May 8th, 2018
Page Street
288 pages
Pre-order: Amazon Book Depository 
From Goodreads:

The Queen Underneath
"The Above and the Under have a tenuous truce that is shattered after the death of both their respective rulers. Gemma, the new queen of Under, must throw history aside and team up with Tollan, the heir to the Above throne, in order to take down a power that seeks to rule them all. 

Their group of rebels is comprised of an assassin, a sex worker, and a palace servant from Above, and we follow their unique perspectives as they are forced to question previously held beliefs. But even with war looming, romance still grows. Challenging gender roles and the expectation that every prince must have a princess, Tollan discovers love with Elam—a young man, a sex worker, and one of Gemma’s closest friends."

I've heard this one is pretty dark, which is something that always draws me in. I love the sound of the cast in this book, so I'm really looking forward to picking it up.
