Waiting on Wednesday: Serpentine by Cindy Pon


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

This weeks book that I'm desperate  waiting to get my hands on:

Serpentine  by Cindy Pon


Publication: September 1, 2015

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Goodreads Summary

SERPENTINE is a sweeping fantasy set in the ancient Kingdom of Xia and inspired by the rich history of Chinese mythology.

Lush with details from Chinese folklore, SERPENTINE tells the coming of age story of Skybright, a young girl who worries about her growing otherness. As she turns sixteen, Skybright notices troubling changes. By day, she is a companion and handmaid to the youngest daughter of a very wealthy family. But nighttime brings with it a darkness that not even daybreak can quell. 

When her plight can no longer be denied, Skybright learns that despite a dark destiny, she must struggle to retain her sense of self – even as she falls in love for the first time.


Why I'm desperate for Serpentine: 

I read Cindy Pon's Kingdom of Xia series when I was in high school and just simply fell in love with her writing and the world she created. So, it's no surprise that I'm super excited for Serpentine! I really can't wait to dive back into her world of Chinese mythology!
