Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.
Tamsin is the most powerful witch of her generation. But after committing the worst magical sin, she’s exiled by the ruling Coven and cursed with the inability to love. The only way she can get those feelings back—even for just a little while—is to steal love from others.
Wren is a source—a rare kind of person who is made of magic, despite being unable to use it herself. Sources are required to train with the Coven as soon as they discover their abilities, but Wren—the only caretaker to her ailing father—has spent her life hiding her secret.
When a magical plague ravages the queendom, Wren’s father falls victim. To save him, Wren proposes a bargain: if Tamsin will help her catch the dark witch responsible for creating the plague, then Wren will give Tamsin her love for her father.
Of course, love bargains are a tricky thing, and these two have a long, perilous journey ahead of them—that is, if they don’t kill each other first..
Ooooooooooh. Well, just based on the description this has some of my favorite tropes so I’m really looking forward to seeing how this one plays out. Also, I’m all for more f/f romance! Please give me more of that. A Sweet & Bitter Magic is expected March 9th, 2021 from Margaret K. McElderry Books.

The cover looks familiar, I might have added it to my Goodreads watchlist just earlier this month! I’m probably going to wait for early reviews before I decide to read it, so maybe you can vet it for me 😀
Hah! Well my reading schedule is out the window right now, I don’t even know when I’ll get to the books I’ve been excited for that came out back in May of this year so…haha. Maybe though! 🙂

This sounds so intriguing!!! (and worth just for the beautiful cover!!)
I’m totally in love with the cover! 🙂
This sounds really good and I do like that cover. Puts me mind of the sisters from Practical Magic – one a redhead and the other with raven coloured hair.
Yes, it reminded me of that too!
