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

Genre: Fantasy

Release date: April 20, 2021

Pre-order It from Bookshop.org!

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.

Why I'm excited for it
  • 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!
why it should be on your tbr
  • 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?

Is Witches Steeped in Gold on your TBR?


Happy reading! Ari
