Waiting on Wednesday: Am Ember in the Ashes

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.


Set in a terrifyingly brutal Rome-like world, An Ember in the Ashes is an epic fantasy debut about an orphan fighting for her family and a soldier fighting for his freedom. It’s a story that’s literally burning to be told.

LAIA is a Scholar living under the iron-fisted rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire’s greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution.

ELIAS is the academy’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias is considering deserting the military, but before he can, he’s ordered to participate in a ruthless contest to choose the next Martial emperor.

When Laia and Elias’s paths cross at the academy, they find that their destinies are more intertwined than either could have imagined and that their choices will change the future of the empire itself.

I really want to read this because apparently it was picked up for a movie deal before it was even released. And we get to see more Emma Watson. I love her.
Release Date April 28, 2015

Confessions of a bookworm is a new meme started by Anila at

I don't think my confession is crazy or anything but my secret is that I honest to goodness wanted/ want to be on Broadway. I was a theatre major in undergrad but I have a million student loans and everything in the theatre world is so uncertain so I slowly walked away from it and now I'm a librarian. However I honest to goodness pretend while I'm driving to work that I'm in some huge show and sing and dance and I make sure the people driving next to me get the show of their lives!!

My car is hardly Broadway, but when I'm in there performing, it's pretty damn close!

  What's your secret?
