Waiting on Wednesday ~ Middle Grade #thehatmakers #thelastwindwitch

October 7, 2020 Misc. 2

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Now called Can’t Wait Wednesday hosted by Wishful Endings. It’s where we display a book that we can’t wait to read because it sounds so good. 🙂

The first adventure in a spellbinding new magical world.

‘Wildly inventive . . . full of laugh-out-loud humour, enchanting magic and rebellious hope. I loved it’ Catherine Doyle

Cordelia comes from a long line of magical milliners, who weave alchemy and enchantment into every hat. In Cordelia’s world, Making – crafting items such as hats, cloaks, watches, boots and gloves from magical ingredients – is a rare and ancient skill, and only a few special Maker families remain.

When Cordelia’s father Prospero and his ship, the Jolly Bonnet, are lost at sea during a mission to collect hat ingredients, Cordelia is determined to find him. But Uncle Tiberius and Aunt Ariadne have no time to help the littlest Hatmaker, for an ancient rivalry between the Maker families is threatening to surface. Worse, someone seems to be using Maker magic to start a war.

It’s up to Cordelia to find out who, and why . . .

Having a hard time finding books for the last half of the year so I am going with some for next year…lol. I think this sounds like a fun magical adventure! Comes out February 2nd, 2021 from W.W. Norton and Company!

This delightfully classic middle grade fantasy debut, perfect for fans of Serafina and the Black Cloak and The Book of Boy, follows an unlikely young witch as she discovers that she is the key to saving her kingdom.

Brida is content in her small village of Oak Hollow. There, she’s plenty occupied trying to convince her fickle magic to do what it’s meant to in her work as a hedgewitch’s apprentice—until she accidentally catches the attention of the wicked queen.

On the run from the queen’s huntsman and her all-seeing Crow spies, Brida discovers the truth about her family, her magic, and who she is destined to be—and that she may hold the power to defeating the wicked queen and setting the kingdom right again.

Fans of Shannon Hale and Kelly Barnhill will delight in this charming and richly imagined fantasy debut, featuring a wicked queen, magical animals, a henchman with a golden heart, and a small girl with a great destiny. 

One thing I really like is middle grade fantasies! This sounds really cool and well it had me at MAGICAL ANIMALS! 🙂 Comes out April 13th 2021 from HarperCollins.

    I love Middle Grade fantasy but haven’t read much of it lately. I’m adding both of these to my TBR. The first one especially looks great.
