Can't-Wait Wednesday: Misrule (Malice Duology #2) by Heather Walter & Hide by Kiersten White

Can't-Wait is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released! This meme is based off of Jill @ Breaking the Spine's Waiting on Wednesday meme.

This week's upcoming book spotlights are: 

Misrule (Malice Duology #2) by Heather Walter
Publication: May 10th, 2022
Del Rey
Hardcover. 432 pages.
Pre-order: Amazon |

"Does true love break curses, or begin them? 

The Dark Grace is dead. 

Feared and despised for the sinister power in her veins, Alyce wreaks her revenge on the kingdom that made her an outcast. Once a realm of decadence and beauty, Briar is now wholly Alyce’s wicked domain. And no one will escape the consequences of her wrath. Not even the one person who holds her heart. 

Princess Aurora saw through Alyce’s thorny facade, earning a love that promised the dawn of a new age. But it is a love that came with a heavy price: Aurora now sleeps under a curse that even Alyce’s vast power cannot seem to break. And the dream of the world they would have built together is nothing but ash. 

Alyce vows to do anything to wake the woman she loves, even if it means descending into the monster Briar believed her to be. But could Aurora love the villain Alyce has become? 

Or is true love only for fairytales?"
Malice was one of my favorite books last year and this has probably been one of my most anticipated releases/sequels for this year! I loved this dark villain story and can't wait to continue it. 


Hide by Kiersten White
Publication: May 24th, 2022
Del Rey 
Hardcover. 256 pages.
Pre-order: Amazon | 

"The challenge: spend a week hiding in an abandoned amusement park and don't get caught. 

The prize: enough money to change everything. 

Even though everyone is desperate to win--to seize their dream futures or escape their haunting pasts--Mack feels sure that she can beat her competitors. All she has to do is hide, and she's an expert at that. 

It's the reason she's alive, and her family isn't. 

But as the people around her begin disappearing one by one, Mack realizes this competition is more sinister than even she imagined, and that together might be the only way to survive. 

Fourteen competitors. Seven days. Everywhere to hide, but nowhere to run. 

Come out, come out, wherever you are. 

A high-stakes hide-and-seek competition turns deadly in this dark supernatural thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White."
I haven't read much from Kiersten White in a while, but I am loving the sound of this and have a lot of faith that she'll do really well with this adult debut!
