Waiting On Wednesday (#9)

'Waiting on Wednesday' is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

 I swear that as soon as I found out that the cover had been revealed I squeaked with joy! I've wanted to post this as my WOW for months, but because I knew the cover was soon going to be revealed, I thought I'd hold on until then. So here it is: This week, I am waiting on City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare.

Now, like all of Clare's other novels, the cover is beautiful and eye-catching. But personally, I was a bit disappointed that it was Jace and Clary - again! I wanted a Magnus cover (purely because I am a hardcore Magnus fan...even though it's not that hardcore. But yes. Magnus.) - I mean, we've had Jace, Clary, Alec, Clary and Alec, and now Jace and Clary - where's Isabelle? Where's Magnus? Where's Simon? I also have to pick a fault with the model who is portraying Clary - I swear she's supposedly short? The model doesn't look that short to me.

Anyway! Enough about the cover - time for the storyline. Although a sypnosis hasn't been posted yet, from what I gather, the Shadowhunter's are a bit confused and reeling from a betrayal of one of their own. Although this is of little information, I am still really excited for this book, because I want to know more about the plot twists that will have carried on from the previous book, City of Fallen Angels. I'm interested to find out more about Simon, Isabelle, Alec, Magnus, Camille, Maia, Jordan, "Sebastian", and of course Jace and Clary's relationship; even though I say it bugs me at times, after the cliffhanger of the previous novel, I am genuinely curious.

So - what's your WOW this week?
