Waiting on Wednesday- January 13, 2010

The Poison Eaters
by Holly Black
Publication Release Date: February 1, 2010


In her debut collection, New York Times best-selling author Holly Black returns to the world of Tithe in two darkly exquisite new tales. Then Black takes readers on a tour of a faerie market and introduces a girl poisonous to the touch and another who challenges the devil to a competitive eating match. These stories have been published in anthologies such as 21 Proms, The Faery Reel, and The Restless Dead, and have been reprinted in many “Best of” anthologies. The Poison Eaters is Holly Black’s much-anticipated first collection of stories, and her ability to stare into the void—and to find humanity and humor there—will speak to young adult and adult readers alike.


  1. I definitely am looking forward to this one too! Great pick.

  2. I came here from Jill's waiting on Wednesday post, it's interesting to see how everybody has an upcoming new release that they want to read, and every body is so different. I don't have any now and I won't have any in 2010 because I have bought too many books in the past and I haven't caught up with my reading. I started my blog because I wanted to start documenting all the books that I bought and they are sitting in my house suffocating me.... I am slowly documenting them in the wish list section of my blog, so I can look at it and be reminded everyday that I have all these books lying in my shelf, underneath my bed, in my closet, on my dining table and kitchen counter that I had not even opened....I think I must have obsessive book buying behavior...
