Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!
Here's my pick this week:
The Sin Eater's DaughterWho could possibly resist the lure of this book? Not me, that's for sure! The blurb starts off by promising to ''shatter our definition of YA fantasy'' which is already quite the impressive feat...Then, we get an MC living in a castle who's also an executioner. One single touch from her can kill O.O Woah. And then, there's mention of a goddess, romance, an evil queen and the utmost of sacrifices. Yup. this book is begging to be read. Add a really unique title and one stunning cover and I'm sure I won't be the only one lining up to get my hands on The Sin Eater's Daughter.

The Sin Eater's Daughter #1
Expected Pub Date: February 24 2015 by Scholiastic
A startling, seductive, deliciously dark debut that will shatter your definition of YA fantasy.
16-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she's engaged to the prince, no one speaks to her. No one even looks at her. Because Twylla isn't a member of the court. She's the executioner.
As the goddess-embodied, Twylla kills with a single touch. So each week, she's taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love her. Who could care for a girl with murder in her veins? Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to her touch, avoids her.
But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose playful smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he's able to look past Twylla's executioner robes and see the girl, not the goddess. Yet a treasonous romance is the least of Twylla's problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies-a plan that requires an unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?
Are you excited for this one too? Who am I kidding, of course you are!
