Can’t Wait Wednesday – ONCE UPON A BROKEN HEART by Stephanie Garber
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is ONCE UPON A BROKEN HEART by Stephanie Garber. If you’re a fan of Garber’s Caraval series, you’re going to want to read this book because it’s about our favorite Prince of Hearts, JACKS! I can’t wait to see Jacks again and I’m looking forward to meeting new character Evangeline Fox.
ONCE UPON A BROKEN HEART by Stephanie Garber
Publication Date: September 28, 2021 by Flatiron Brooks
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Caraval, the first book in a new series about love, curses, and the lengths that people will go to for happily ever after.
Evangeline Fox was raised in her beloved father’s curiosity shop, where she grew up on legends about immortals, like the tragic Prince of Hearts. She knows his powers are mythic, his kiss is worth dying for, and that bargains with him rarely end well.
But when Evangeline learns that the love of her life is about to marry another, she becomes desperate enough to offer the Prince of Hearts whatever he wants in exchange for his help to stop the wedding. The prince only asks for three kisses. But after Evangeline’s first promised kiss, she learns that the Prince of Hearts wants far more from her than she’s pledged. And he has plans for Evangeline that will either end in the greatest happily ever after, or the most exquisite tragedy…

I’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your CWW selection for this week. 🙂
I am DYING to get my hands on this book!!!
Oh wow, that premise just grabbed me rightaway — I want to know more
If it’s anything like Caraval, it should be a pretty wild ride!
Beautiful cover! And I like the sound of the story even though I never finished the Caraval series!
I ended up being glad I finished the Caraval series because I really enjoyed the second and third books. Hoping this one will be a winner too.
It’s so exciting exciting when a favorite character gets their own story! I hope this one is a hit for you!

I’m so curious about this. I have to admit I didn’t love Caraval, so I’ll probably just be a lurker and read other people’s reviews😁

I don’t keep on top of fantasy books, but I am curious about what Garber has coming our way.

Right? Same here!
I really enjoyed the first book in the Caraval series – and I’m not sure why I didn’t continue reading it. I hope you love this one – it’s always a treat to get more of a much-loved character:)).
Thank you! Yes, I was not expecting to get another book in this world so I’m really looking forward to it.
I never finished the Caraval series, but I do really like the sound of this one!
I struggled with the first book in the Caraval series but loved the second and third books so I’m hoping my love will continue with this new one.
I so need that one too Suzanne, having read caraval this month! And I would love to get the pink Barnes and Nobles edition too but they don’t ship to my country. sigh.
