Waiting on Wednesday #46 * Deja Vu Edition *

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

Heya guys! This week I'm bringing you a special Deja Vu Edition of Waiting on Wednesday! Have you ever looked at a book cover at thought, "I know I've seen this before somewhere..."? This happens to me all the time, and 1 times out of 10, it's not just my crazy memory messing with me! Tell me, do the books below cause you to have Deja Vu??? I know I've seen that girl before somewhere... Oh, right... THERE! haha!

The trees swallowed her brother whole. And Jenny was there to see it. Years later, when she returns to the woods where Tom was taken to say good-bye at last, she finds herself lured into a world where stunning beauty masks the most treacherous of evils, and strange and dangerous creatures await—creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with allegiances that shift as much as his moods. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack’s help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where nothing is what it seems, no one is who they say, and she’s faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice—and not just her own.

Vianne di Rocancheil has been largely content to play the gawky provincial. As lady in waiting at the Court of Arquitaine, she studies her books, watches for intrigue, and shepherds her foolhardy Princesse safely through the glittering whirl. Court is a sometimes-unpleasant waltz, especially for the unwary, but Vianne treads its measured steps well.

Unfortunately, the dance has changed. Treachery is afoot in gilded and velvet halls. A sorcerous conspiracy is unleashed, with blood, death, and warfare close behind. Her Princesse murdered and her own life in jeopardy, Vianne must flee, carrying the fate of her land with her--the Great Seal of Arquitaine, awake after its long sleep. Invasion threatens, civil war looms, and the conspiracy hunts for Vianne di Rocancheil, to kill or to use her against all she holds dear.

A life of dances, intrigues, and fashion has not prepared her for this. Nor has it prepared her for Tristan d'Arcenne, Captain of the King's Guard and player in the most dangerous games conspiracy can devise. Yet to save her country and avenge her Princesse, Vianne will become what she must, say what she should, and do whatever is required.

A Queen can do no less. (Goodreads)

Why am I Waiting on this book??

OK, you caught me... Technically The Hedgewitch Queen is already out as an ebook. I couldn't seem to find it as a physical book, however, so I'm still going to include it. :) Anyways, is it just my crazy mind playing tricks on me, or is this the same girl??

Deja Vu, Baby!

Either way... both books look amazing, and sound great as well. I can't wait to check them out!

What are you Waiting on this week???


  1. Excellent pick, I can't wait for Treachery! I still haven't read Lili's novel yet, planning to do so soon =)

    My WOW:

    A Cupcake and a Latte: Young Adult Reviews!

  2. LOL, good eye! That is indeed the same picture, except mirrored. And photoshopped. It happens a lot! Good picks, though :D

    Book Brats!

  3. Oooh well spotted with the covers! I have never seen The Hedgewitch Queen, but it sounds awesome and I am dying to get my hands on The Treachery of Beautiful Things!!

    And I totally experience cover de ja vu. It drives me nuts if I can't remember where I've seen the other haha.

  4. Ha! I always find it curious that that happens! Actually have a set myself of Not your Ordinary Faery Tale and Wake unto Me! They're the same couple on each, except on one the guy is ghosty!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. I love the cover of the first one. Great choices!

  6. Girls in pretty dresses seem to be a cover theme. So pretty though. I am curious about the first one. Great choices!

  7. The girls do looks similar! Both of them sound really good. Great picks!

  8. Huh! Look at that:) I remember the new cover for The Vespertine with the girl running was used in a bunch of covers too, it's always interesting when that happens I think:) Both of these sound so good!

  9. I love this Deja Vu edition! You're so right, they are the same girl.. in the same exact pose! Only the dress is different. Someone got shafted on that deal... I have The Hedgewitch Queen on my Kindle and am thinking about reading it over the holidays. Hoping it's good!

    My WoW

  10. Wow- these are definitely similar. I am always drawn to covers like this- gorgeous! Great picks!

  11. I knew I had seen the cover for The Treachery of Beautiful Things before!

    Nice picks! They both do sound interesting :)

  12. It's the exact same image. I know it's cheaper to buy stock images and photshop them than to do photoshoots but sometimes images get overused. I would not be surprised if this one turned up yet again on the cover of another book. Great catch and I'm curious about both books.
    Truly Bookish

  13. Haha it is the same! But they both still look like really great reads! Great pick and happy holidays!

    Here's my WoW!

  14. Yes, both are great looking covers and both of them sound great. I'm always amazed when seeing the same covers, same models, just mirror images or little changes photoshopped in.
    Our WoW is at Book Sake. -Jessica

  15. Same girl on the cover but flipped. I'm interested in both books. Thanks for sharing and pointing that out about the cover. That was a good catch.

    My WoW:

  16. LOL I can't believe I never noticed that before! That is SO deja vu-worthy! x) I actually think that a lot of books use cover pictures from the same photo shoots as other books (or in this case, the same picture LOL), and I always think it's cool to find them! :)

    Awesome picks for your WOW, Christy!

  17. Believe it or not, I've seen this stock image on at least 4-5 books: these 2 plus 2-3 self-published. So it is overused. On the other hand, I've just finished reading The Hedgewitch Queen and it was an excellent fantasy, quite dark as well, but I don't expect anything less of Lili ;) She also said that so far this book has only been published as ebook, they don't plan to introduce it in print.

  18. I just saw this the other day on goodreads and did a double take. I love the cover of The Treachery of Beautiful Things but now seeing the other cover it makes it not as unique. Yes, both are both beautiful. I've seen several books that have the same images. Too funny!

  19. I haven't heard of the second book yet, but it sounds (almost) just as awesome as The Treachery of Beautiful Things - I'm dying to read the latter. :) Great picks, and yes, definite déjà vu. :D



Thanks for stopping by! :)
