Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Hihihi!!! Oh, wow, super sorry for posting a late WoW, but right now, even though it's summer, I've been extremely busy. So here's my late WoW post!
Remember how it's a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine? Guess what - it still is! Woohoo!
So my pick for this week is The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood.

Jessamine Luxson lives with her father, Thomas, an apothecary, in an isolated cottage near Alnwick Castle. Thomas’s pride and obsession is his locked garden full of dangerous plants, which Jessamine is forbidden to enter.

When a traveler brings an orphan to their cottage, he claims the boy has special gifts that Thomas might value. Jessamine is drawn to the strange but intriguing boy, called Weed. Soon their friendship deepens into love. Finally, Weed shares his secret: He can communicate with plants. For him they have distinct personalities—and some are even murderous. From the locked garden the poisonous plants call to Weed, luring him with promises of deadly power.

When Jessamine falls inexplicably ill, only Weed’s relationship with the Poisons can save her. But Thomas is determined to exploit Weed’s abilities, even if it risks Jessamine’s life—or drives Weed to the brink of madness.…

So I'm really excited for this one because I've never really read a book that had poison playing such a critical role except maybe the Study series by Maria Snyder, and those I absolutely loved so I'm definitely looking forward to this one. Plus, the cover is gorgeous! And you guys all know that a gorgeous cover never hurt anyone ;)

The Poison Diaries will be released on July 20th 2010 by Balzer + Bray.

So what are you *points at you* waiting on this week?
