Waiting on Wednesday - Poison by Bridget Zinn

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is

Summary (by Goodreads)

Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

Years ago, Curlypow convinced me to read Graceling, even though I'm not a huge fan of fantasy.   I loved the strong heroine.  I've pegged Poison on my TBR list as it sounds like a similar protagonist.  Can't wait to read it!


  1. I've definitely been considering this one as well :). It sounds so interesting.

    Here's my WoW :)

  2. Beautiful cover!!! That alone makes me want to read it lol

    Good pick you have for the week.

    Happy Reading!

  3. I'm really excited for Poison as well. I still haven't finished Graceling. I definitely need to read that, too.
