Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. WoW posts are about books that you can’t wait to get your hands on. I know I do my WoW posts ahead of other people because of the time difference. It’s Wednesday morning here in Manila while it’s still Tuesday night for most other bloggers. Anyway, my WoW post for today is The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud, due out November 9 of this year. The Bartimaeus Trilogy is in my list of favorites and I think Bartimaeus is a hilarious narrator so it’s good to know that there’s another book coming out. It’s set in the same world but is more of a companion novel to the trilogy rather than part of the series. I’ve recommended the trilogy to a couple of friends so I know that others will look forward to this too.
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Bartimaeus, everyone’s favorite (wise-cracking) djinni, is back in book four of this best-selling series. As alluded to in the footnotes throughout the series, Bartimaeus has served hundreds of magicians during his 5,010 year career. Now, for the first time, fans will go back in time with the djinni, to Jerusalem and the court of King Solomon in 950s BC. Only in this adventure, it seems the great Bartimaeus has finally met his match. He’ll have to contend with an unpleasant master and his sinister servant, and runs into just a “spot” of trouble with King Solomon’s magic ring…
What’s your WoW pick this week? 🙂
