Waiting on… The Blazing Star by Imani Josey

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine!

Adorable dragons are necessary for everything, but this one is keeping her eye out for more awesome books :D

This week I got so excited for a cover reveal that there was no doubt in my mind which book I’d feature for the return of my Waiting on Wednesday!


Sixteen-year-old Portia White is used to being overlooked—after all, her twin sister Alex is a literal genius.

But when Portia holds an Egyptian scarab beetle during history class, she takes center stage in a way she never expected: she faints. Upon waking, she is stronger, faster, and braver than before. And when she accidentally touches the scarab again?

She wakes up in ancient Egypt—her sister and an unwitting freshman in tow.


Mysterious and beautiful, Egypt is more than they could have ever imagined from their days in the classroom. History comes alive as the three teens realize that getting back to the present will be the most difficult thing they’ve ever done. Stalked by vicious monsters called Scorpions, every step in the right direction means a step closer to danger.

As Portia and the girls discover that they’re linked to the past by more than just chance, they have to decide what it truly means to be yourself, to love your sister, and to find your way home.

LOOK AT THAT COVER!!!!!!! I am absolutely astounded by that beauty and I normally don’t even like pink! And Egypt! And a woman of color as the MC! I’m beyond excited for this book and I hope you add it to your TBR immediately as well :D.

What are you excited about this week?
