Speaking of which, my pick this time around is...
City of a Thousand Dolls
By: Miriam Forster
Release Date: February 5th, 2013 from HarperCollins
The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.
Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. Nisha makes her way as Matron’s assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city’s handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.
Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls’ deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls—but her own life.

Oh my gosh.
There are NO WORDS that I can use to describe how excited I am for it. That title! That cover! AHHHHH!!!! It sounds just plain amazing, kind of like a mix between Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder and Eon by Alison Goodman. Clearly, epicness ensues. And clearly, I cannot wait for it. When ARCs come around, please imprint one with my name. I will be shaking with joy, aye.
What are YOU waiting on this week?
