My pick this week is:

Summary:

In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.
On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. In The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson, deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.
 Why I want to read it:

I'm excited about TKOD for several reasons: 1) the cover is gorgeous and I just can't take my eyes off of it; 2) the story sounds like a good adventure. I mean, a runaway Princess? Totally my thing!


So how about you? What amazing book are you waiting on this week?
