Waiting on Wednesday (153): The Grace of Kings + Mind Games

This week's WoW picks made me go "Okay Kai, what were you thinking? It's like you're in this place one second, and then on another the next.". Yes, they're vastly different books, but they currently tickle my fancy, so I chose them.

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Title: The Grace of Kings (The Dandelion Dynasty #1) by Ken Liu
Release Date: April 7th 2015
Published by: Simon & Schuster

Summary:

Wily, charming Kuni Garu, a bandit, and stern, fearless Mata Zyndu, the son of a deposed duke, seem like polar opposites. Yet, in the uprising against the emperor, the two quickly become the best of friends after a series of adventures fighting against vast conscripted armies, silk-draped airships, soaring battle kites, conspiring goddesses, underwater boats, magical books, as a streetfighter-cum-general who takes her place as the greatest tactitian of the age. Once the emperor has been overthrown, however, they each find themselves the leader of separate factions—two sides with very different ideas about how the world should be run and the meaning of justice.

Why I'm waiting for The Grace of Kings:

Aside from that awesome title? I'm currently reading Pierce Brown's Golden Son (*gasp* IKR?) and there's just something in my current reading experience that made so attracted to this novel. They're not even in the same genre, but there's something oddly magnetic in the way this story is set up. Two people who became friends, brought together by war and when it ended, found themselves standing on opposite sides instead of being together. Conflict! Danger! Feelings! Something tells me this is going to be epic.

(Also, for some reason that cover makes me think of Gladiator.)

Title: Mind Games by Teri Terry
Release Date: March 5th 2015
Published by: Orchard Books

Summary:

Luna is a no-hoper with a secret: in a world of illusion, she can see what is real. But can she see the truth before it is too late?

Luna has always been able to exist in virtual and real worlds at the same time, a secret she is warned to keep. She hides her ability by being a Refuser: excluded by choice from the virtual spheres others inhabit. But when she is singled out for testing, she can’t hide any longer.

The safest thing to do would be to fail, to go back to a dead-end life, no future. But Luna is starting to hope for something better, and hope is a dangerous thing...

Why I'm waiting for Mind Games:

It's no secret that I love Teri Terry. Slated is one of my favorites and I was so happy and excited when I found out she has a new book coming out and then I read the summary and I just love her even more. Mind Games sounds amazingly intriguing with that sci-fi vibe from the get go. It's got that Divergent + Glaze feel to it and the combination just makes me more eager to read her book!
