Waiting on Wednesday #48


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers):

coldestgirlincoldtownTana lived in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

Um, hello, it’s Holly Black! Admittedly I’m a little done with vampires (although I loved The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa), but if anyone can do them well with unique twists and turns, it’s Holly. I’m looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us!

Release Date: September 17, 2013

What are you waiting on this week? Please link me!

    I’ve only read one Holly Black book, Tithe, but I wasn’t madly in love. I mean, I thought it was well-written, but books about the fey aren’t my favorite. But I should try out her other books. I’ve very curious about The White Cat books.
