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.

Why I’m waiting?

I’m not a big fan of post-apocalyptic books, but this particularly one is written by Holly Black (I adored her Curseworkers series). There is something creepy about this book, and yet, I’m anxious to read it. The title is clever, and I hope it’ll keep me on the edge of my seat or force me to cower underneath my blanket. Also, post apocalyptic road trip? Never heard such a thing. But I want it. (At least, I have yet to read one.)

What books are you waiting on this Wednesday?
