Waiting on Wednesday: Slice of Cherry

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on....

Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves

Release Date: Januray 4, 2011

Kit and Fancy Cordelle are sisters of the best kind: best friends, best confidantes, and best accomplices. The daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer, Kit and Fancy are used to feeling like outsiders, and that’s just the way they like it. But in Portero, where the weird and wild run rampant, the Cordelle sisters are hardly the oddest or most dangerous creatures around.

It’s no surprise when Kit and Fancy start to give in to their deepest desire—the desire to kill. What starts as a fascination with slicing open and stitching up quickly spirals into a gratifying murder spree. Of course, the sisters aren’t killing just anyone, only the people who truly deserve it. But the girls have learned from the mistakes of their father, and know that a shred of evidence could get them caught. So when Fancy stumbles upon a mysterious and invisible doorway to another world, she opens a door to endless possibilities...

-Excuse me while I stare at the cover some more.

*Ahem* Ok I'm back. While I wouldn't have minded if Simon & Schuster had made the cover similar to that of Bleeding Violet (so gorgeous!), I am equally happy with this one. If we are being perfectly honest here, it will probably help sales that the cover has no hint of the race of the main characters, nor does the description. I adore the teacups with blood running down them. It instantly draws the eye. I would definitely pick this book up to read the summary based on the cover alone. I would then buy it because the synopsis sounds so amazingly creepy. I don't like reading about murderers but I'll make an exception for this book because it's teenagers who are the daughters of a killer and the excerpt has me dying for more.

So what are you waiting on this week? Any poc releases? Let me know!


  1. I also adore the cover and description. I'll add Slice to my wish list.

  2. I love that Dia Reeves is coming out with something new. I was always hoping that Bleeding Violet wasn't her last book (I'd actually to see a follow up to that book too). I love Reeves writing style. It's the kind of bizarre over-the-top style that reads a bit like a Tarantino movie.

  3. I'm really surprised by this cover - I was so convinced that it would be similar to Bleeding Violet's that I can actually clearly picture it how I imagined. Weird. I like this one though. It's quirky.

  4. I have preordered it- now I wait (forever it seems like). The first time I read the full summary my eyes were out on stalks - the main characters will be female killers! Awesome and in Portero that could mean they're good, bad, possessed, destined to rule the town - anything.


I love to hear from you!! Thank you for sharing :) And don't be Anon, I try to always reply back and I like to know who I'm replying to ;)
