Cant-Wait Wednesday( 93) Sea Witch & Court of Shadows

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Title: Sea Witch
Author: Sarah Henning
Release Date: July 31st 2018
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books

Everyone knows what happens in the end.
A mermaid, a prince, a true love’s kiss.
But before that young siren’s tale, there were three friends.
One feared, one royal, and one already dead.
Ever since her best friend, Anna, drowned, Evie has been an outcast in her small fishing town. A freak. A curse. A witch.

A girl with an uncanny resemblance to Anna appears offshore and, though the girl denies it, Evie is convinced that her best friend actually survived. That her own magic wasn’t so powerless after all. And, as the two girls catch the eyes—and hearts—of two charming princes, Evie believes that she might finally have a chance at her own happily ever after.

But her new friend has secrets of her own. She can’t stay in Havnestad, or on two legs, unless Evie finds a way to help her. Now Evie will do anything to save her friend’s humanity, along with her prince’s heart—harnessing the power of her magic, her ocean, and her love until she discovers, too late, the truth of her bargain.

The rise of Hans Christian Andersen’s iconic villainess is a heart-wrenching story of friendship, betrayal, and a girl pushed beyond her limits—to become a monster.

 Gah!! I love retelling so this book sounds write up my alley.I love the fact that this book is an origin story of a villain.  Also lately I have been on a mermaid kick so I cant wait for this book!!!!

Title: Court of Shadows (House of Furies #2) 
Author: Madeleine Roux
Release Date: May 29th, 2018
Publisher: HarperTeen

The chilling second book in the all-new graphic horror series from New York Times bestselling author of Asylum follows Louisa Ditton, a teenage girl who finds employment as a maid at a boardinghouse in northern England—only to discover that the owner is executing his own brand of dark justice on the guests.

Louisa Ditton doesn’t know who she is anymore.

After the gruesome events of last autumn, she has settled into her role as a maid at Coldthistle House but struggles to control her new changeling powers. Is she turning into a monster like her employer, the devilish Mr. Morningside, or did her last act of heroism redeem her?

As Louisa grapples with these weighty questions, Mr. Morningside plans a fete—one that will double as a trap for an End of Days cult that wants him dead. But then Upworlders, angelic beings who look down upon Mr. Morningside’s monstrous staff, arrive, and they’re prepared to take over Coldthistle. And one brother-sister duo named Sparrow and Finch is bringing their own brand of self-righteous justice. Even a man claiming to be Louisa’s father has a role to play, though Louisa can’t quite tell what his true motive is…yet.

I loved House f Furies!! I totally thought I was going to have to wait a year for the sequel but nope!!
