Waiting on Wednesday

waiting on wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme brought to you Breaking the Spine.

This week I’m waiting on a book I didn’t even know about till last week!


A Fierce and Subtle Poison by Samantha Mabry

Everyone knows the legends about the cursed girl–Isabel, the one the senoras whisper about. They say she has green skin and grass for hair, and she feeds on the poisonous plants that fill her family’s Caribbean island garden. Some say she can grant wishes; some say her touch can kill.

Seventeen-year-old Lucas lives on the mainland most of the year but spends summers with his hotel-developer father in Puerto Rico. He’s grown up hearing stories about the cursed girl, and he wants to believe in Isabel and her magic. When letters from Isabel begin mysteriously appearing in his room the same day his new girlfriend disappears, Lucas turns to Isabel for answers–and finds himself lured into her strange and enchanted world. But time is running out for the girl filled with poison, and the more entangled Lucas becomes with Isabel, the less certain he is of escaping with his own life.

Last week a few of my fellow bloggers posted some bookmail pics that included this one and I’m at a loss.  How did I not know this was coming out?!  It sounds magnificent!

What about you?  What are you waiting for this week?

    I just really, really love this cover! It’s so vibrant and colorful, which means it pops off the screen. And that title typography is lovely! I’m also loving the summary. Cannot wait to get my hands on a copy!
