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/MG novel from the top of my TBR list!
Releases 10 January 2017 from Random House
Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It's a miserable life, but being a vishakanya--a poison maiden--is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.
Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she s really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.
This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Kissing? Death? Indian folklore? Yes, yes, and yes! This sounds awesome. I can't wait to see what Breeana Shields has come up with.
What book are you looking forward to today? I'll see you again Saturday(ish).
