Waiting on Wednesday #74

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Jocelyn's Waiting On: 

Poison's Kiss by Breeana Shields 
Publication Date: January 10th, 2017


Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It s a miserable life, but being a visha kanya a poison maiden is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.

Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she s really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.

This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Hmm, Indian folklore? I can't say that I've ever read or been told any Indian folklore but I would definitely be interested in hearing some. I'll admit that I am a bit wary that this was compared to fans of Victoria Aveyard, but the description just seems so awesome that I am going to overlook that little bit and try it out! 

Cassie's Waiting On: 

Eleventh Grave in the Moonlight (Charley Davidson #11) by Darynda Jones
Publication Date: January 24, 2017


Eleventh Grave in Moonlight (Charley Davidson, #11)A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, missing people, errant wives, philandering business owners, and oh yeah...demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part time Private Investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead. In this eleventh installment, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, maybe Charley can find a way to have her happily ever after after all. 

After the ending of the 10th book in this series, I'm dying to get my hands on this installment in the Charley Davidson series.  I can't get enough of these characters, and I can't wait to read another hilarious read from Darynda Jones!

  2. I've not heard of the Darynda Jones book, but I am looking forward to reading Poisons's Kiss. It's based on Indian culture and lore, and the author's not Indian, so I'm curious to see how the book will turn out. I hope you enjoy these books when you get a chance to read them, ladies!

    Have a fabulous week. :)
