The Winner's Kiss
by Marie Rutkoski!

Expected publication date: March 1st, 2016
Publisher: Farrar Straus & Giroux

SUMMARY (from Goodreads):

War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it, with the East as his ally and the empire as his enemy. He’s finally managed to dismiss the memory of Kestrel, even if he can’t quite forget her. Kestrel turned into someone he could no longer recognize: someone who cared more for the empire than for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she cared for him. At least, that’s what he thinks.

But far north lies a work camp where Kestrel is a prisoner. Can she manage to escape before she loses herself? As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover unexpected roles in battle, terrible secrets, and a fragile hope. The world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and Kestrel and Arin are caught between. In a game like this, can anybody really win?

THE WINNER'S CRIME is definitely one of my favorite books of the year. I absolutely cannot wait for this one!
What is your waiting on?


  1. I though the first one was ok (I know, everyone else on the planet loved them and I'm a freak). Maybe I need to give it another chance. I hope you enjoy this when it's out!

  2. Who doesn't want this one. This one sounds so amazing. I still need to read book 2, but I hope that you love this book when it comes out.
