Can’t Wait Wednesday: Oct 20, 2021

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a meme where you get to flail about whatever upcoming book you’re excited to read. Though it is generally a new release, it certainly can be any book that’s on your TBR! This meme is currently hosted by Wishful Endings and it’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.


Hello, reader!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Can’t Wait Wednesday post, hasn’t it? I’d thought I’d switch it up this week! And then, as soon as I had this thought, I realized there really aren’t a lot of my most anticipated 2021 releases that aren’t already out. It seems like not a lot of books get published in the tail-end of the year. Well… at least not a lot of books that have ended up on my Want to Read shelf.

But then I remembered that one of my most anticipated sequels has yet to be released! I loved the first book when I read it in 2020, so much so that as soon as it was available, I pre-ordered the second one. Which is saying something because I don’t pre-order a lot of books. I really should, though… it’s like a little present to future-Kerri 😂 This particular present features:

  • World-changing magic ✨
  • Complicated relationships 💔
  • A beautiful, African-inspired setting 🌍

The book I’m talking about is…

#5OnMyTBR – Sequels

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!


Hello, reader!

It has been a minute since I’ve done a #5OnMyTBR, hasn’t it? I blame the move and just being incredibly busy lately. I have today off, though, so before I go blog-hopping, I figured I would revisit one of my favorite bookish weekly memes.

This Monday, the theme of #5OnMyTBR is sequels! We’re talking about books in a series that we’ve been meaning to read but haven’t picked up yet. Of which I have… a lot 😅 But I’ve narrowed it down to the five that I most want to read. That being said, let’s get to it!


#1. The Faithless Hawk by Margaret Owen

This one is, perhaps, my most anticipated sequel of 2020. I randomly picked up The Merciful Crow (the first book in this series) last year at the library. The premise sounded interesting and I liked the cover. It’s literally why I pick up most of the books that I read, lol. Anyways, I ended up falling in love with Fie and the world that Owen has created! Fie is sarcastic and tough and willing to fight for what she believes in. I can’t wait to continue her story!

Also, cause I’m nothing if not on-brand, it’s got a gorgeous cover 😍
