Waiting On Wednesday #14

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, which showcases books we're eagerly anticipating.

The Winner's Curse
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 by Marie Rutkoski 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.

Publication Date: March 4th 2014

Why Am I Waiting?

Both Steph and Kat (Cuddlebuggery) gave this five stars. And if that isn't enough for you, just look at that cover and synopsis!

Although admittedly, I'm not the biggest fan of that cover. It's pretty, but her hairstyle throws everything off. She looks like she's bald with that hair style, they should have let it hang loose. And although I have nothing against redheads, I do think her hair color clashes a bit with the dress. But that's just my two cents.

What are you waiting on?
