Waiting On Wednesday (108) The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by Breaking The Spine where readers showcase which books they are highly anticipating. This week I'm turning my spotlight on The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

Expected Publication:
2015 from Orbit Books


The Fifth Season is set in a world which has suffered frequent, repeated Extinction Level Events for millions of years, and all life (and magic) in this world has adapted to it. Hundreds of years might pass between these events—easy, plentiful years in which great cities rise, and people have the leisure for art and science and rapid advancement—but then, again and again, the cities fall. The world is littered with the detritus of these times of plenty, and this cover hints at them: past ages of decadence, now decaying; stone that endures beneath flaking gilt.

Why Am I Waiting?
Even though I don't really know much about this one yet it still sounds pretty cool. I love books with apocalyptic type themes and this certainly seems to have that. Guess we'll just have to wait and see!! Ooo, I do love the cover though. 
Since I'm curious, Have you heard of this book before? 
If so, Do you plan on reading it?

Sound off in the comments below. I love to read your responses. 
That about wraps up my Waiting On Wednesday for this week. Feel free to leave a link to your Wednesday memes in the comments below, I love finding new books to read. Like what you see? Please share!


  1. I can't wait to hear more about it in the coming months.

  2. I have been seeing this one around. I haven't read anything by Jemisin yet, but a few of her books are already on my TBR.

    My WOW
