Waiting on Wednesday (118)

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 Lies I Told by Michelle Zink (4/7/15):

Description on Goodreads:
What if, after spending a lifetime deceiving everyone around you, you discovered the biggest lies were the ones you've told yourself?

Grace Fontaine has everything: beauty, money, confidence, and the perfect family.

But it’s all a lie.

Grace has been adopted into a family of thieves who con affluent people out of money, jewelry, art, and anything else of value. Grace has never had any difficulty pulling off a job, but when things start to go wrong on the Fontaines' biggest heist yet, Grace finds herself breaking more and more of the rules designed to keep her from getting caught...including the most important one of all: never fall for your mark.

Perfect for fans of Ally Carter, Cecily von Ziegesar, and Gail Carriger, this thrilling, high-stakes novel deftly explores the roles of identity and loyalty while offering a window into the world of the rich and fabulous.
Why I’m Waiting:
I really enjoyed the Prophecy of the Sisters series by Michelle Zink. I know she’s written more since then, but I still need to get to it. And this one sounds super awesome. It has an Ally Carter feel to it, and I’m all about it. The mixture of conning the wealthy and falling for her mark makes this main character sound beyond interesting. It will be fun to read something a bit more contemporary by this author too. I’m not sure I’m feeling the cover because it’s kind of yawns-ville, but I just know this book will be good.
What are you waiting on this week?
