It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA or MG novel from the top of my TBR list!
BEASTS MADE OF NIGHT
Releases 31 October 2017 from Razorbill
In the walled city of Kos, corrupt mages can magically call forth sin from a sinner in the form of sin-beasts: lethal creatures spawned from feelings of guilt. Aki, young sin-eaters indentured by the mages, slay the sin-beasts.
Taj is the most talented of the aki, but his livelihood comes at a terrible cost. When he kills a sin-beast, a tattoo of the beast appears on his skin while the guilt transfers to his mind. Most aki are driven mad by the process, but seventeen-year-old Taj is both cocky and desperate to provide for his family.
When Taj is called to eat a sin of a royal, he’s suddenly thrust into the center of a dark conspiracy to destroy Kos. Now Taj must fight to save the princess that he loves--and his own life.

This novel is derived from old Nigerian tales, and it sounds awesome. Add it to your list, and I will be back on Saturday.
