Waiting on Wednesday #31:The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers can rant and rave about any upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. For my addition, I will be spotlighting an upcoming book AND sometimes I will throw in a video game release that I am dying to get my hands on!
This week in WoW, I’m featuring a novel with a beautiful cover and an unexpected romance. Check out my top pick this week and you’ll see why….
This Week’s Pick:
Overview: Winning what you want may cost you everything you love As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined. Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart”.
Why does this novel have to sound so freaking awesome?????!!!!!!! Look at that cover. *swoon* Read that blurb… *swoon some more* The Winner’s Curse is one of my most anticipated reads for next year. Definitely can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! *sighs*
So what about you? What games or books are you waiting on?
