Waiting on Wednesday: Worlds of Ink and Shadow

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
It's a weekly meme about upcoming books we're excited about!

Worlds of Ink and Shadow
by Lena Coakley
Publication Date: January 5, 2016

From Goodreads:

Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne. The Bronte siblings have always been inseparable. After all, nothing can bond four siblings quite like life in an isolated parsonage out on the moors. Their vivid imaginations lend them escape from their strict upbringing, actually transporting them into their created worlds: the glittering Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy Gondal. But at what price? As Branwell begins to slip into madness and the sisters feel their real lives slipping away, they must weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations, even as their characters - the brooding Rogue and the dashing Duke of Zamorna - refuse to let them go.

Why I'm Excited

- Ever since reading Lena Coakley's other book Witchlanders, I have been dying for her to write more books. Her style is so beautiful and her worlds and characters captivating. I want more!!
- I have an obsession with stories involving people who are sucked into fictitious worlds.
- It has to do with the Brontes!! Why wouldn't I be excited?!


  1. Looks and sounds great. I am pretty sure this one is already on my wishlist. Hope you love it!

    1. Thanks, Barb! It's Lena Coakley, so I'm pretty sure I will love it. :)

  2. Right from the beginning of that synopsis, when it listed the sibling names, I was like, "The Brontes? YES. SOLD." This sounds so good! I hadn't heard of it so thank you so much for putting it on my radar. I'm off to add it to my TBR!
