Title: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
Published by: Little, Brown Books
Release date: September 17th, 2013
COLDTOWN WAS DANGEROUS, TANA KNEW. A GLAMOROUS CAGE, A PRISON FOR THE DAMNED AND ANYONE WHO WANTED TO PARTY WITH THEM.
Tana lived 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 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.
Why I want to read it: Although I haven't read the Curse Workers series, I did read the Modern Fairy Tales and the Spiderwick Chronicles and loved both. Holly Black is an amazing writer and I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Pretty awesome cover too:)
What are you waiting for this week?
