Waiting on Wednesday: Carnival of Souls (31)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!

This week, I am waiting on...
Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr

Expected Publication Date: September 4, 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins
Synopsis: 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.
Why I'm Waiting: Did you READ that synopsis? Seriously, it sounds so incredible! I need it NOW, please. I haven't read any of Melissa's other books, but this one sounds fabulous. The title is awesome, and the cover is stunning.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? :)


  1. This one sounds pretty interesting :)

  2. I picked the same thing. CANNOT WAIT.

  3. "Fighting to death is the only way to live." I love that.

    You know, I don't know what I was thinking. I saw this cover earlier today and because it looked so much like a different Melissa de la Cruz book (<--- isn't that weird?) that I didn't like, and they both have the same name I completely wrote the book off. Thanks for making me stop and actually read the synopsis!

    Happy WoW!

  4. Melissa Marr!?? Sure I would read it!
    Happy Wednesday and new email follower :)

  7. I like the title! :D And I haven't read so many books about daimons. I have her other books on my wishlist, but this one is new to me, so I've added it to Goodreads right away. Thanks!


  8. This does sound really good! I've read some of Marr's other books and didn't really love them, but this one looks promising!

    Thanks for sharing!
