Waiting on Wednesday #136

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

FIREBUG BY LISH MCBRIDE

Goodreads Description:

Ava is a firebug—she can start fires with her mind. Which would all be well and good if she weren’t caught in a deadly contract with the Coterie, a magical mafia. She’s one of their main hitmen . . . and she doesn’t like it one bit. Not least because her boss, Venus, killed Ava’s mother. When Venus asks Ava to kill a family friend, Ava rebels. She knows very well that you can’t say no to the Coterie and expect to get away with it, though, so she and her friends hit the road, trying desperately to think of a way out of the mess they find themselves in. Preferably keeping the murder to a minimum.

Hardcover, 336 pages
Expected publication: September 23rd 2014 
by Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Pre-Order here.

I'm excited for this book. First, it is a book by Macmillan. Who is a publisher that I adore. Second, the cover is prety amazing. Third, I kind of love the summary. Despite it being pretty short. I love it. And I cannot wait to read Firebug. <3 I'm hoping it will be an amazing book. Hoping for romance too, hih :)
What are you waiting for on this lovely wednesday?

  4. Reminds me of Stephen King's "Firestarter" with a different background.

  5. Reminds me a lot of Firestarter but for a slightly younger demographic. Intriguing though nonetheless. Nice pick!
