Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.
Happy Wednesday y’all! I’m anxiously waiting on Nameless Queen by Rebecca McLaughlin. Well, I guess technically I’m not too anxious (I got an ARC) but I had to share it with y’all! Like last week’s pick, the title and blurb caught my attention. A Nameless Queen takes the throne. Nameless is a part of this fantasy world’s caste system. I’m intrigued and a little (no really, a LOT) excited to dive into this one. 2020’s YA fantasies are looking good so far!

One girl must make a name for herself--or die trying --in this royal fantasy where an unknown peasant becomes the ultimate ruler. But how long can she keep the crown if everyone wants her dead? Perfect for fans of Furyborn, Red Queen, and Everless.
Everyone expected the king's daughter would inherit the throne. No one expected me.
It shouldn't even be possible. I'm Nameless, a class of citizens so disrespected, we don't even get names. Heck, dozens of us have been going missing for months and no one seems to care.
But there's no denying the tattoo emblazoned on my arm. I am queen. In a palace where the corridors are more dangerous the streets, though, how could I possibly rule? And what will become of the Nameless if I don't?
Your Turn! What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Share below
