Waiting On Wednesday (9)

SHADOW AND BONE (The Grisha #1)
by Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: June 5th,2012

Surrounded by enemies, the once-great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near-impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one unlikely refugee.

Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life– a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.

Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha… and the secrets of her heart.
I think I'm obsessed with the cover. It's possibly my favourite debut 2012 cover yet. I love everything about it, the colours, the font, thank God they didn't use an image, I love covers that are very symbolic and actually has some significance in the story.
Also, I've heard such great things about the story, so that's a massive BONUS! <3
And, did you see THAT? It's also blurred by Veronica Roth (author of Divergent and Insurgent - my favourite book of 2011) 
::: SO. What are YOU waiting for on Wednesday?
