Waiting on Wednesday: The Deep

“Waiting on Wednesday” is a weekly meme where I post about an upcoming book that excites me. It’s currently hosted by the blog Wishful Endings. After the awesomeness that was An Unkindness of Ghosts, I decided that I would read everything Rivers Solomon writes. And I went on to read the SerialBox story of their’s, The Vela, and…

I suggest reading Daughter of Mystery first, as both The…
