Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, that highlights upcoming releases we're anticipating.

    Author: Josephine Angelini
   Series: The Worldwalker Trilogy
   Genre: YA, Paranormal Fantasy
   Release Date: September 2, 2014
Summary From Goodreads: 
This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear.
Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.
Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.
But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?


Why I'm waiting: 

I absolutely loved Josephine Angelini's Starcrossed trilogy, so I'm super excited for Trial by Fire, especially because it's fantasy. I usually don't really like witch books, but this one looks so good! I love the cover too!

What are you waiting to read? Tell me in the comments!
