|WAITING ON WEDNESDAY| The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski (15)

The Winner's Curse (Winner's Trilogy #1)
By: Marie Rutkoski 
Release Date: March 4th, 2014
Publisher: Farrar Straus Giroux
Pages: 368 

Winning what you want may cost you everything you love. 

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions.

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
Recently I read and really enjoyed THE SHADOW SOCIETY, and I just woke up the next day with THE WINNER'S CURSE added to my shopping cart on Amazon. No clue how it got there, but I went ahead and left it there because I liked Rutkoski's previous novel and have heard brilliant things about THE WINNER'S CURSE. 

But I promise I wasn't the one who sneakily added THE WINNER'S CURSE to my Amazon cart. Me? Never. *innocent eyes* Maybe it was the book fairy. Yep.

How did THE WINNER'S CURSE get into Kaede's Amazon cart for March?

The world may never know. 

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
