Waiting on Wednesday: The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski {7}

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly awaiting!!

Title: The Winner's Curse
Author: Marie Rutkoski
Release date: March 4, 2014
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 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.
After seeing a few very early reviews of this one, I absolutely knew I had to have it. But the cover, which popped up sometime last week, is what made me about die with excitement. Yes, it's a girl in a pretty dress, but I'm in love with the typography and with the fact that she's holding on to the r. Gah, I need this book nowwww.

So what are you guys waiting on this week? :)
