Waiting on Wednesday (55)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"Chime"
by Franny Billingsley
Dial
Release Date: Mar 17, 2011


The following description is from Goodreads.com: 

Before Briony's stepmother died, she made sure Briony blamed herself for all the family's hardships. Now Briony has worn her guilt for so long it's become a second skin. She often escapes to the swamp, where she tells stories to the Old Ones, the spirits who haunt the marshes. But only witches can see the Old Ones, and in her village, witches are sentenced to death. Briony lives in fear her secret will be found out, even as she believes she deserves the worst kind of punishment.
Then Eldric comes along with his golden lion eyes and mane of tawny hair. He's as natural as the sun, and treats her as if she's extraordinary. And everything starts to change. As many secrets as Briony has been holding, there are secrets even she doesn't know.

This one sounds really unique and I love the cover!! I haven't seen it around a lot, I'd love to know more about it!

What are you waiting for this week????

Sounds really good, and I love the name Briony (I don't know why, just do). And I do like the cover.
Thanks for pointing it out!
