Waiting on... Thursday: 1/22/2015

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

Well I didn't realize that I scheduled this post for the wrong day until it was too late, and by then I was already at work so I just left it this way *shrugs* 

The Sin Eater’s Daughter (The Sin Eater’s Daughter, #1)
     Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.
     She’s the executioner.
     As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.
     But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.
     However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favor of a doomed love?

Why I'm Waiting: As if the title wasn't intriguing enough, that cover definitely is! And then to see that she's the executioner, it can only get better. And looking at the synopsis, it seems that it definitely does. I can't wait to see what all happens! Everyone who's read it says they loved it already!
