What it’s about:

The highly anticipated coming-of-age story for the world’s greatest super hero: WONDER WOMAN by the # 1 New York Times bestselling author LEIGH BARDUGO.

She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

Why I am waiting for this release:

It’s Wonder Woman. A coming-of-age story for Wonder Woman. A coming-of-age story for Wonder Woman, written by Leigh Bardugo, one of my favorite authors. Yes, yes yes!

What book release are you eagerly anticipating?

  1. Sooooo… I haven’t yet read a Leigh Bardugo **zig-zags and rolls**.

    She’s on my TBR though, I swear! I have to get around to reading her books soon and this one is ALSO going on my TBR because – Wonder Woman… 🙂

    Great pick!

    1. Haha, don’t worry about it, there are just way too many books and authors out there 😉 But I do hope you’ll get to her soon as her Grisha trilogy and Six of Crows duology are among my all-time favorites. Let’s hope Wonder Woman will be equally amazing. Hope you’ll enjoy her books 🙂

  2. OH YES I am SO excited for this one too! I adore Wonder Woman, and aIthough I haven’t read any of Bardugo’s books yet (*sighs*) I’m sure this book will be terrific!
    Here’s my WoW

    Amazing pick!

    1. Wonder Woman is amazing and I love Leigh Bardugo’s writing so I have high hopes! Let’s hope this book will live up to our expectations 🙂

  3. Omg Lindsey you pick all the books that I am excited for! (although I ever really did one WoW lol) BUT CANNOT WAIT. We are also getting the movie this year! SO MUCH AWESOMENESS.

    1. Haha I guess great minds think alike 😉 Oh yes, I’m so excited for the movie as well! Plus with Justice League also coming out this year we will definitely get a lot of Wonder Woman 🙂

  4. DYING FOR THIS ONE, but then again, I’m dying for any Leigh Bardugo stuff. I would read that woman’s shopping list 😀 Awesome pick!

  5. This may be my chance to try Leigh Bardugo! Seriously I think this looks really good- great pick! Can’t wait for this one.

    1. Yes, it’s so different from her Grisha-related books so it could really be a great introduction to Leigh Bardugo 🙂 Hope you’ll enjoy!

  6. Um… the author! The title! WW!! YES to all of it. Now I want this one. 😀
