Waiting on Wednesday | Fire Queen


Today I thought I join in Waiting on Wednesday. Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme that originally created by Jill at Breaking the Spine but has since been adapted with Can’t Wait Wednesday by Teresa at Wishful Endings.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature that showcases upcoming release that we are dying to get to!


Fire Queen by Joanna Courtney

The world knows Ophelia as Hamlet’s troubled lover; but behind Shakespeare’s tragedy stands a real woman: this is her story .

The second novel in the new historical fiction series from the bestselling author of the Queens of Conquest, Joanna Courtney’s new trilogy unearths the real women behind Shakespeare’s most infamous queens.



Why I can’t wait to read this

I adore Joanna Courtney’s writing, she is one of my all time favourite historical fiction authors. I also loved the first book in this series, Blood Queen, which tell the true story of Lady Macbeth.

I don’t know much about Hamlet and Ophelia as it wasn’t one of the Shakespeare plays that I’ve studied. Not sure if I will read more into these characters or just want to read this book.

I’m interested to see if this queen is also from the Iron Age as this time period does seem to be Courtney’s sweet spot as currently all her books are set in this time period.



That’s it for me. Comment down below and let me know which books release date you cannot wait for.

Until next time, happy reading!
