Waiting on Wednesday: Queen of Someday

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

For those of you who love historical period pieces with a twist, Queen of Someday by Sherry Ficklin definitely looks like one amazing read!  Loosely based on Catherine the Great, this one looks to have all the good fixins' of a wonderful historical romance YA! 

Before we dig in too far though, can we all just take a moment to marvel at this cover!  Holy hotness!  Yowza!  If one can judge a book by it's cover than this one looks steamy!  Beyond the cover though, this looks to have all of the classical elements: romance, betrayal, action, mystery, intrigue... the list goes on and on!

I always kinda chuckle at book descriptions but this one does provide a fair amount of yes, Queen of Someday...mark as TBR and coming to shelves in early October!

Summary Courtesy of Goodreads:


Before she can become the greatest empress in history, fifteen-year-old Sophie will have to survive her social-climbing mother’s quest to put her on the throne of Russia—at any cost.

Imperial Court holds dangers like nothing Sophie has ever faced before. In the heart of St. Petersburg, surviving means navigating the political, romantic, and religious demands of the bitter Empress Elizabeth and her handsome, but sadistic nephew, Peter. Determined to save her impoverished family—and herself—Sophie vows to do whatever is necessary to thrive in her new surroundings. But an attempt on her life and an unexpected attraction threatens to derail her plans.

Alone in a new and dangerous world, learning who to trust and who to charm may mean the difference between becoming queen and being sent home in shame to marry her lecherous uncle. With traitors and murderers lurking around every corner, her very life hangs in the balance. Betrothed to one man but falling in love with another, Sophie will need to decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice in order to become the empress she is destined to be.

In a battle for the soul of a nation, will love or destiny reign supreme
