Waiting on Wednesday - Black Heart

Waiting on Wednesday was a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, so that bloggers can feature upcoming releases that they cannot wait to get their hands on.

Here's mine...

Cassel Sharpe knows he’s been used as an assassin, but he’s trying to put all that behind him. He’s trying to be good, even though he grew up in a family of con artists and cheating comes as easily as breathing to him. He’s trying to do the right thing, even though the girl he loves is inextricably connected with crime. And he’s trying to convince himself that working for the Feds is smart, even though he’s been raised to believe the government is the enemy.

But with a mother on the lam, the girl he loves about to take her place in the Mob, and new secrets coming to light, the line between what’s right and what’s wrong becomes increasingly blurred. When the Feds ask Cassel to do the one thing he said he would never do again, he needs to sort out what’s a con and what’s truth. In a dangerous game and with his life on the line, Cassel may have to make his biggest gamble yet—this time on love.
I've been waiting with baited breath for this one ever since I turned the last page of Red Glove.  Cassel is by far one of my fave book heroes, and the world that Holly Black has created is just breathtaking in its detail and mythology.

I would seriously curse someone to get my hands on this one.

How about you?  Is this on your to-read list?  Or do you have something else to share with me?
Let me know in the comments!  I love to hear what you guys are waiting on!


  1. I've never read any of Holly Black's books but I've always wanted to. They always look good :)

  2. I really like Holly Black but I find this cover totally unappealing and generic! I wish it captured her work better.

    Please check out my WoW!

  3. Holly Black is new to me. Thanks for the new author!

  4. Confession: I haven't read these yet. I have the first one on audio but just haven't gotten around to it...

    I'm glad you're excited though :) and I liked how you included the old cover lol.

  5. Awww, you must be in denial that they changed the cover of Black Heart! It's completely different now! I can't wait to see how Holly Black will end the trilogy.

  6. Awesome! I really enjoyed White Cat but I haven't read book 2 yet.
