[Meme] Waiting on Wednesday [#45]

Title: The Book of Ivy (The Book of Ivy #1)
Author:  Amy Engel
Publisher: Entangled: Teen
Expected Publication Date: November 4, 2014 

After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual.
This year, it is my turn.
My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president’s son—my soon-to-be husband—and restore the Westfall family to power.
But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he’s not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy (goodreads)

I love a good "I'm here to kill oh wait, I think I love you" set up! What are you waiting on?


  1. OOoh intriguing cover! Sounds like an intense read!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I'm totally looking forward to this one as well! I was sceptical at first because what more could you do with this genre, BUT I've been hearing some great reviews about this one! I can't wait :D I'm the same as you! I love this trope.

    1. Yeah the synopsis sounds a bit "been there done that" but everyone seems to love it!

  3. This looks exciting! I think the main character will be an interesting one.Totally agree for waiting for this as well. And THAT COVER.

    1. I think I'm always attracted to female assassins because they're pretty complex and strong! AND YES, THE COVER. It basically sums up the plot!

  4. I got an email for this and was wondering if this was a stand alone or series - I see now that this is book #1.

    Love assassins (as long as I'm not the target lol)
