My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm!
I hope that you are all having a good Wednesday … and a good week. I feel like I’m going to ask this a lot this week, but who is back in scholl today?
It feels weird for us to be sending the schools back, don’t you think? Though I know a few parents who are glad to be sending them back. They’re not going to complain about 6 week summer holidays ever again.
My Can’t Wait Wednesday book for today is book #2 in a series. I don’t do series books for this because if you haven’t read the first one then I don’t think there’s much point to showing you number two because … well, spoilers! However I’ve not read the first one either and I am still so excited for this series. It looks amazing!
But before I tell you more about the book, let me tell you some more about Can’t Wait Wednesday. Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Iron Heart (Crier’s War, #2) by Nina Varela
An unstoppable love between two girls—one human, one Made—both set on destroying the Iron Heart.
For too long the cruel, beautiful Automae have lorded over the kingdom of Rabu, oppressing the humans who live there. But the human revolution is on the rise, and at its heart is Ayla. Once handmaiden, now fugitive, Ayla escaped the palace of Lady Crier, the girl Ayla had planned to kill . . . but instead fell in love with. Now Ayla has pledged her allegiance to Queen Junn, whom she believes can accomplish the ultimate goal of the human rebellion: destroy the Iron Heart. Without it, the Automae will be weakened to the point of extinction.
But playing at Ayla’s memory are the powerful feelings she developed for Crier. And unbeknownst to her, Crier has also fled the palace, taking up among travelling rebels, determined to find and protect Ayla.
As their paths collide, neither are prepared for the dark secret underlying the Iron Heart.
In this stunning sequel to acclaimed author Nina Varela’s Crier’s War, the love that launched a revolution must now pave the way for a whole new era . . . and the ultimate change of heart.
