Waiting on Wednesday (48)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on This Wicked Game by Michelle Zink (11/14/13):

Description on Goodreads:
Claire Kincaid’s family has been in business for over fifty years.

The voodoo business.

Part of the International Guild of High Priests and Priestesses, a secret society that have practiced voodoo for generations, the Kincaid’s run an underground supply house for authentic voodoo supplies. Claire plays along, filling orders for powders, oils and other bizarre ingredients in the family store, but she has a secret.

She doesn’t believe.

Struggling to reconcile her modern sensibilities with a completely unscientific craft based on suspicion, Claire can’t wait to escape New Orleans – and voodoo – when she goes to college, a desire that creates almost constant conflict in her secret affair with Xander Toussaint, son of the Guild’s powerful founding family.

But when a mysterious customer places an order for a deadly ingredient, Claire begins to realize that there’s more to voodoo – and the families that make up the Guild – than meets the eye.

Including her own.

As she bands together with the other firstborns of the Guild, she comes face to face with a deadly enemy – and the disbelief that may very well kill her.
So, I just absolutely love everything this author writes. None of her stuff screams unique, necessarily. But, That doesn’t mean her supernatural romances are not still spectacular and addicting. There’s always a strong female protagonist. There’s always a little bit of the supernatural/magic. And there’s always just the right amount of romance! This to me is a definite recipe for success. I buy and love all of this author’s YA, and I plan to keep doing so. Plus, how cool does the whole voodoo thing sound? Also, I’m definitely intrigued by the cover.
What are you waiting on this week?
