Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Tressa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Happy mid-week Wednesday!
For this week’s edition of CWW I’ll be sharing my current read. It’s a book that I’m pretty excited to come out and I just feel lucky that I get to read it ahead before it hit shelves.

Violet Sterling has spent the last seven years in exile, longing to return to Burleigh House. One of the six great houses of England, Burleigh’s magic always kept the countryside well. And as a child, this magic kept Violet happy, draping her in flowers while she slept, fashioning secret hiding places for her, and lighting fires on the coldest nights to keep her warm.
Everything shattered, though, when her father committed high treason trying to free Burleigh from the king’s oppressive control. He was killed, and Vi was forced into hiding.
When she’s given a chance to go back, she discovers Burleigh has run wild with grief. Vines and briars are crumbling the walls. Magic that once enriched the surrounding countryside has turned dark and deadly, twisting lush blooms into thorns, poisoning livestock and destroying crops. Burleigh’s very soul is crying out in pain.
Vi would do anything to help, and soon she finds herself walking the same deadly path as her father all those years before. Vi must decide how far she’s willing to go to save her house—before her house destroys everything she’s ever known.
I’m only about 10% into this A Treason of Thorns and already I am in love with it. It’s deliciously atmospheric, I might just gobble it up.
I’m set to post my review of this book next week, September 15th as part of the Fantastic Flying Book Club‘s A Treason of Thorns blog tour. If you’d be so inclined, please do check out the rest of the stops.
