Waiting on Wednesday #17


A wonderful weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine to showcase any book(s) you're super psyched to get--it doesn't have to be a new/soon-to-be released, just one that you really want to read!


City of a Thousand Dolls
by Miriam Forster
publication date: 2013

The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.
Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. Nisha makes her way as Matron’s assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city’s handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.

Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls’ deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls—but her own life



I gotta say, it's the title that really grabbed my attention at first. It gave it a certain whimsical, if not a little creepy, vibe that really appealed to me. I feel like the story could be absolutely outstanding, or just kinda meh... but I really hope it's the former!
