Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Ever since I saw the cover of City of a Thousand Dolls, I instantly liked it. Then I read the synopsis and liked it much more. I was foolish looking for it in bookstores and ending up disappointed…until I looked again and discovered it’s not going to be out until February 5, 2013! So it’s five months more until we get hold of it. =)
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. Nisha makes her way as Matron’s assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city’s handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.
Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls’ deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls—but her own life.
