Author: Robin Bridges
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Oh my G! If I wasn't a broke college kid I would be on Amazon hitting the preorder button for this book.
5 reasons that I want it:
1. It's set in 1800s Russia. Pre Soviet Union Russia was a pretty fancy pants place.
2. The main character is named Katerina. If anyone watches The Vampire Diaries, you'll know why this makes me happy.
3. Katerina just happens to be able to raise the dead...so she's a little different.
4. That cover is amazing - that snow, that hat and that sassy/concerned facial expression shows me that this book means business.
5. The book trailer, which you can find here is amazing! Be prepared for some creepy white eyes, creepy old ladies, and an ominous shaking tea cup...
So that's what I'm waiting on this Wednesday. What books are you waiting for?
