Waiting on Wednesday *19*

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together and spotlight what upcoming release we're most excited about!
 
Here's my pick this week:

Poison 

Release Date: March 12th 2013

Author: Bridget Zinn

Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.


Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army & her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, & Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal & the army find her?

Kyra is not your typical murderer, & she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress...


I can't even begin to express how much I want to read this book.  She's...this girl Kyra... is a potion master & assassin. She lives in a Kingdom.  Then she goes on the run with an adorable pig (look at that face on the cover there!).  And meets a cute  adventurer.  Seriously, do I need to go on?!?  I want it, I want it, I want it!!!!  Plus that cover is just... dreamy, enchanting and fierce ♥  

What are you waiting on this week??

  2. I'm currently reading this one (just started) but I've heard it is pretty great!! Did u try NG for it--I think that's where my copy came from. Good Luck, doll!


    * The one sad thing about this book is the author passed away from cancer at a young age and I'm not sure if she wrote more before she passed.
