Waiting on Wednesday is a blog meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming books.
This week's WoW selection is:
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Date: September 3, 2013
Tana lives 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.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black
I know this book has been making the WoW rounds- but you can't blame me for adding it to my TBR list. I'd add it for the title alone but the description is also pretty awesome. Even better, I only have to wait about two weeks to buy it.
