Waiting on Wednesday, October 7th

Hello Darlings!

I’m back with Waiting on Wednesday! I was supposed to post WLW Wednesday today but I won’t embarrass myself with the fact that I’ve read only one sapphic book in the span of two weeks and I didn’t even like it much so have this instead!

This is one of the 2021 releases I’ve been eyeing lately and honestly, I can’t wait!

Today’s pick is a book…

a romantic m/m arranged marriage space opera with a political intrigue

Can you guess?

Ancillary Justice meets Red, White & Royal Blue in Everina Maxwell’s exciting debut.

While the Iskat Empire has long dominated the system through treaties and political alliances, several planets, including Thea, have begun to chafe under Iskat’s rule. When tragedy befalls Imperial Prince Taam, his Thean widower, Jainan, is rushed into an arranged marriage with Taam’s cousin, the disreputable Kiem, in a bid to keep the rising hostilities between the two worlds under control.

But when it comes to light that Prince Taam’s death may not have been an accident, and that Jainan himself may be a suspect, the unlikely pair must overcome their misgivings and learn to trust one another as they navigate the perils of the Iskat court, try to solve a murder, and prevent an interplanetary war… all while dealing with their growing feelings for each other.


Intrigue! Arranged marriage! Opposites attract! Gays in space!

This book has it all!

Winter’s Orbit—a popular work originally published online—is a queer, romantic space opera. In an unforgiving empire, a scandal-prone prince and a dutiful scholar, who are forced into a political marriage, try to prevent an interplanetary war.” [x]
