Me on Waiting on Wednesday (135)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown
Author: Holly Black
Release Date: September 17, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (Hachette Book Group imprint)

From Goodreads:

Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave.

One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

I only sort of remember the short story (good thing I've got the anthology), but it's Holly Black so how can I not want to read this? Not totally sold on the cover, though. I think a real hand instead of an illustrated hand would've been cool.


  1. I'm waiting for this one as well. I think it sounds awesome and there's been some really good reviews so far. :)

  2. Yes! I recently got this one from Netgalley and I can not wait to start it!

  3. I actually like the hand, lol. Interesting pick!

  4. I'm really excited to read this! I have a copy sitting on my bedside table just waiting for me to get to it.

  5. Great choice, this is one that I'm desperate to get my hands on as I'm a huge fan of Holly Black!

    My WoW!

  6. This one sounds so amazing! I haven't read anything by Holly Black though I can't wait for this one. Thanks for sharing!
