Wow: Carnival

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it is a weekly feature where bloggers share what they are excited to read next.

Here is my pick for this week:

Summary from Goodreads
In a city of daimons, the Carnival of Souls hosts a deadly competition. Once in a generation, every citizen can fight to join the ruling elite. Without the competition, Aya and Kaleb would both face bleak futures—if for different reasons. For each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try to live.

In our own world, Mallory knows that her father—and every other witch—fled the daimons’ city long ago. She trains to be lethal because it’s only a matter of time until the daimons catch up with them.

While Mallory possesses little knowledge of The City, every inhabitant of The City knows of her. There are plans there for Mallory, and soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence that is the Carnival of Souls.

From Melissa Marr, bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series, comes a brand-new tale of secrets, love, and the struggle to forge one’s own destiny.

I haven't read Marr's Wicked Lovely series but it is on my to be read list.  I've read Graveminder and enjoyed it so after reading the premise of this book I really wanted to read this one.  It comes out September 4th, 2012 and I know it'll be at BEA this year.  

Happy Reading! 


  1. I am so very excited to read this one. I LOVE the cover. I am crossing my fingers I pick it up while at BEA.

    Great choice! Oh, and I haven't read any Melissa Marr at all, but this one sounds too good not to read it.

  2. I'm looking forward to this as well and love the cover.
