Waiting on Wednesday (30)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The purpose of the event is to spotlight the upcoming releases that readers are most looking forward to.
 
This week, I've chosen:
 
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Add it: Goodreads
Publisher:
Putnam Juvenile
Format: Hardcover, 326 pages
Release Date: February 7, 2012
 
A Great and Terrible Beauty meets Cassandra Clare in this spellbinding fantasy

Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word . . . especially after she finds her mother's diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family's destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren't safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other.

At the risk of sounding like a completely shallow person (I think I say this every week now): THE COVER! IT'S SO PRETTY!

Seriously though.

Cover? Stunning.
Premise? Fantastic.
Sonia? HAPPY.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Even though I suck and probably won't reply until like Friday leave me your WoW links so I can check them out! :)

  2. I LOVE witchy reads. Anything with magic (and gorgeous covers) and sisterhood's and secret diaries and banned books and rebellious friends and forbidden guys and.... BRODIE WANTS.

  3. I WANT THIS!!! I can't believe I'm saying this, but I haven't read many witch-related books! I'm definitely looking forward to this, not only because of the gorgeous cover (I'm happy to buy it just for the cover <3) but also the incredible mystery I'm sensing will be a huge part of the story! Great pick :)

  4. EXACTLY. This is the PERFECT cover for cover sluts like me. And I read an excerpt for it not too long ago and wanted to hyperventilate. I'm so desperate for this one!

    Have an amazing reading week!
