Waiting On Wednesday [@LBardugo @randomhousekids]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:



WONDER WOMAN: WARBRINGER (DC ICONS) by Leigh Bardugo

The highly anticipated coming-of-age story for the world’s greatest super hero: WONDER WOMAN by the # 1 New York Times bestselling author LEIGH BARDUGO.

She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.

Why?

I have always liked Wonder Woman but usually this is what I think of with her, the Lynda Carter TV portrayal:

I like that this will give us her backstory, her beginnings and a more human depiction of who she is, what she wants, her family, etc. It will be interesting to get to know who Diana, Princess of the Amazons is and to see how Diana becomes the hero we already know about. (And how much there is that we do not yet know.)



That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
