Waiting on Wednesday #15: Poison


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!
This week, I'm waiting on:
Poison by Bridget Zinn.


Expected Publication: March 12, 2013.
Publisher: Disney Hyperion.


Goodreads Summary:
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.


Why I'm Excited: I need more fairy-tale type novels in my life. I don't think I read enough of them, and this one sounds like a wonderful debut novel. The main character also sounds like a kick-butt female, which is hard not to love!

What are you waiting on this week?

  5. I'm also a total sucker for fairytale type books, especially with kick-butt female characters. You know what I really love about this summary though? The idea of a cute pig sidekick. That's adorable! Great pick.
