Beautiful Book Quotes II

I was feeling creative and I had a little time to spare, so I made some more shareable book quote graphics. You can see the ones I made in the past here or on my portfolio site.

What do you think? Should I make more? Any quote requests?

Waiting On Wednesday: Poison's Kiss by Breeana Shields

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly book meme, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Poison's Kiss (Poison's Kiss #1)
Expected Publication: January 10, 2017


A teenage assassin kills with a single kiss until she is ordered to kill the one boy she loves. This commercial YA fantasy is romantic and addictive—like a poison kiss—and will thrill fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard.

Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It's a miserable life, but being a visha kanya, a poison maiden, is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.

Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she's really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.

This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

I have to say, this book sounds a bit like Robin LaFever's Grave Mercy—you know, with the whole femme-fatale assassin vibe—but it seems to have enough of a spin on it to make me want to read it.

Which books are you waiting on?
