Can't Wait Wednesday No. 4: Ash and Quill, by Rachel Caine

Here's my choice for this week!

 Ash and Quill
(The Great Library, Book 3)
Hardcover, 368 pages 
July 11, 2017
Fantasy, Historical Fiction, 
 Young Adult Fiction

The unforgettable characters from Ink and Bone and Paper and Fire unite to save the Great Library of Alexandria from itself in this electrifying adventure in the New York Times bestselling series.

Hoarding all the knowledge of the world, the Great Library jealously guards its secrets. But now a group of rebels poses a dangerous threat to its tyranny....

Jess Brightwell and his band of exiles have fled London, only to find themselves imprisoned in Philadelphia, a city led by those who would rather burn books than submit. But Jess and his friends have a bargaining chip: the knowledge to build a machine that will break the Library’s rule.

Their time is running out. To survive, they’ll have to choose to live or die as one, to take the fight to their enemies—and to save the very soul of the Great Library....

Why I can't wait for this one!

  1. OH MY WORD THIS IS AN AWESOME PICK!! It sounds SO amazing, and yes, I need to read the previous books too, lol!
    I absolutely love that premise, and anything to do with libraries and fantasy is definitely going on my TBR!
    Great pick, Maria! <3 <3

    Here's my WoW

    Amy @ A Magical World Of Words

    1. Hi, Amy!

      Yes, this book DEFINITELY sounds AMAZING!! I'm glad you agree that the combination of libraries and fantasy is a GREAT one!!

      I hope I can get tot he first book this year!

      Thanks so much for the SUPER nice comment!! Have a TERRIFIC day!! <3 <3 :) :)

  2. This book looks interesting. The true story of The Great Library of Alexandra is fascinating in and of itself. I guess that this book takes place in an alternate history where the library was never destroyed.

    If you read this I am curious as to what you will think of it.

    1. Hi, Brian!

      I LOVE books about books!!! Whether it's libraries, bookstores, or books that are featured, I will always be interested in finding out more about such novels!!!

      Yes, I think this is an alternate reality where the Great Library at Alexandria was never destroyed. That was a very sad event.... I always feel sad when I hear about books being destroyed.... Thankfully, it's not that often I hear such stories!

      I need to start with the first book in this series, and go on from there! Lol.

      Thanks for the SUPER nice comment!! Enjoy your day!! :) :) :)

  3. This series just sounds more and more epic! How does she do it?! Here's mine:

    1. Hi, Verushka!

      Yes, this sound like a truly EPIC series!! She must be a VERY talented writer!!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!! <3 <3 :) :)

  4. I didn't enjoy the first one in the series as much as I'd hoped, so I haven't read book 2, and don't know if I'll get to it. But I do have to say this cover is beautiful!
    Check out my Wednesday Post

    1. Hi, Lisa!

      Oh, you didn't enjoy the first one that much? Aw, gee!! Well, I'll still try it out, 'cos I'm a HUGE sucker for books about libraries, bookstores, or books!!

      Yes, this cover is just....GORGEOUS!! I've seen the covers of the first two books, and they're beautiful, too, but I think this one is probably the MOST beautiful!

      Thanks for the comment!! <3 :)

  5. I've been eyeing this series and love this cover. Great pick!

    Tressa @ Wishful Endings

      I saw this series on Goodreads the other day, and added all the books! And yes, this cover is just GORGEOUS!! Glad you like my pick!!

      Thanks for commenting back!! <3 :)

  6. Yessss! I have this one scheduled for an upcoming WoW post, and I'm thrilled to see it featured here. It looks amazing, and I can't wait to devour this entire series! Love your Can't Wait Wednesday image -- so pretty! I hope we both love this series when we get around to it -- it sounds perfect for us, doesn't it? Thank you so much for stopping by, Maria *HUGS* <3 <3 <3

    1. Hi, Michele!

      Well, you know what they say about great minds thinking alike, right? Lol. I'll be thrilled to see this book on your upcoming WOW post!

      The "Cant' Wait Wednesday" meme was inspired by the "Waiting On Wednesday" meme, which, as you know, is no longer being hosted by Jill @ Breaking The Spine. CWW was created by Tressa @ Wishful Endings, and she was the one who also created the button above. It is indeed pretty!

      People keep linking to the last WOW post on Breaking The Spine -- the one for 8/24/17. I guess they don't know about Tressa's meme. She has a Linky widget on her meme, so other bloggers can link up. That's where I'm linking up myself.

      Yes, this series does indeed sound PERFECT for us!! I think any obsessed bookworm like us will appreciate it, too!!

      You're very welcome for my visit!! Thanks so much for commenting back!! And HUGS BACK!!!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  7. I've read type first one and think you would really enjoy this series. I still need to catch up and read the second one but at least I own it. The cover of this one is my favorite yet.

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Oh, I KNOW I'll LOVE this series!! Any book that features libraries, bookstores, or books in it will DEFINITELY be a great read for me!! And I would imagine that the same would be true of any obsessed bookworm, lol.

      All the covers are indeed lovely! And I agree with you -- this one is my favorite so far!

      Thanks for the great comment!! <3 <3 :) :)
