Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where you show case an up-coming book that you just can't wait to get your hands on! So, without further ado... 

Palace of Stone
           by Shannon Hale


"Coming down from the mountain to a new life in the city seems a thrill beyond imagining. When Miri and her friends from Mount Eskel set off to help the future princess Britta prepare for her royal wedding, she is happy about her chance to attend school in the capital city. There, Miri befriends students who seem so sophisticated and exciting . . . until she learns that they have some frightening plans. They think that Miri will help them, that she "should "help them. Soon Miri finds herself torn between loyalty to the princess and her new friends' ideas, between an old love and a new crush, and between her small mountain home and the bustling city. Picking up where "Princess Academy "left off, this incredible stand-alone story celebrates the joys of friendship, the delight of romance, and the fate of a beloved fairy tale kingdom."
I read Hale's first novel in this series (Or companion thing?), Princess Academy when I was in grade school. And let me tell you. I enjoyed it. A lot. So you can't blame me for being super excited for this!! I'm definitely going to have to crack open Princess Academy again before I even think about picking this one up! But... Why did they have to change the covers?!?! TT_TT I hate it when they do that. It's like the publishers are punishing me for being so excited to buy a book  right off the bat and not waiting to see if there will be a cover change! D:

Hopefully the spines will match! :D

So what are you guys waiting on this Wednesday? :)
