Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings where bloggers share the books they can’t wait for. I use it here on my blog to highlight an upcoming release I’m excited for and tell you why it should be on your TBR!

Title: Witches Steeped in Gold
Author: Ciannon Smart
Publisher: Harper Teen
Category: Young adult
Release date: April 20, 2021
Synopsis: “Divided by their order. United by their vengeance.
Iraya has spent her life in a cell, but every day brings her closer to freedom – and vengeance.
Jazmyne is the Queen’s daughter, but unlike her sister before her, she has no intention of dying to strengthen her mother’s power.
Sworn enemies, these two witches enter a precarious alliance to take down a mutual threat. But power is intoxicating, revenge is a bloody pursuit, and nothing is certain – except the lengths they will go to win this game.
This Jamaican-inspired fantasy debut about two enemy witches who must enter into a deadly alliance to take down a common enemy has the twisted cat-and-mouse of Killing Eve with the richly imagined fantasy world of Furyborn and Ember in the Ashes.“
- I love anything witchy!
- I’m absolutely obsessed with the cover and have been looking forward to it ever since I saw the cover.
- I love listening to fantasy on audio, and I know there’s an audiobook version coming out
- I’m always looking for fantasy starring BIPOC characters to add to my library’s collection
- I’m a sucker for vengeance plots!
- Because you should be supporting Black authors!
- If you’re a fan of immersive fantasies like An Ember in the Ashes or Girls of Paper and Fire, you’ll definitely want to read this one
- It’s Jamaican-inspired, so if you like fantasy novels inspired by real cultures, like Mirage (Moroccan-inspired), Children of Blood and Bone (Nigerian-inspired), or A Song of Wraiths and Ruin (West African-inspired), this is a perfect addition
- Okay, seriously, that cover! That title! How can you look at that and not want to read it?
