Waiting on Wednesday: 12/18/13

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!
Half Bad (Half Life, #1)

A stunning, magical debut. An international sensation.
     In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and fifteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his sixteenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch—or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust—not even family, not even the girl he loves?
     In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.

Expected Publication: March 4, 2014
Published by: Viking Juvenile

Why I'm Waiting: In case you hadn't noticed, I have YET to read any witch books. Also, I'm really interested in the gifts that will come from his father. Plus, the cover is really cool looking. 

What are you waiting on this week?!
