Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week:

Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor
Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2
Release Date: November 6th 2012
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a world free of bloodshed and war. This is not that world. Art student and monster's apprentice Karou finally has the answers she has always sought. She knows who she is—and what she is. But with this knowledge comes another truth she would give anything to undo: She loved the enemy and he betrayed her, and a world suffered for it. In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed Daughter of Smoke & Bone, Karou must decide how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, secrets and impossible choices, Days of Blood & Starlight finds Karou and Akiva on opposing sides as an age-old war stirs back to life. While Karou and her allies build a monstrous army in a land of dust and starlight, Akiva wages a different sort of battle: a battle for redemption. For hope. But can any hope be salvaged from the ashes of their broken dream?
I was so utterly blown away by the Gothic feel, enticing characters & imaginative world created by Laini Taylor in  Daughter of Smoke & Bone that I can hardly contain my excitement for Days of Blood and Starlight!  And let's be honest: how GORGEOUS is that cover?!  It's going to look amazing on my shelf right next to it's sibling ♥

What was your pick of the week? Let me know :)
