Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Each week bloggers highlight the books that they are highly anticipating.
The book I anxiously awaiting this week is The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy #1)
Title: The Winner's Curse (The Winner's Trilogy #1)
Author: Marie Rutkoski
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux BYR
Release Date: March 4th
Winning what you want may cost you everything you love
As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions.
One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.
But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.
Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
Does this not seriously sound AMAZING?!! I've seen so many people on Goodreads and twitter who have loved this book and I can see why. I am desperate to have this in my hands, March is way too far away but since it will be in my birthday month I'll get as a gift to me from me! And that cover. I AM IN LOVE WITH THAT COVER. Even if I didn't love the blurb like I do I would probably buy this book anyway just for this cover.
What are you waiting on this week?
