Waiting on Wednesday #60: Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan!

Hi everyone! Welcome to another "Waiting on Wednesday" post (meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!). 

This week I am waiting on:

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan
November 6th, 2018, Jimmy Patterson
YA Fantasy
Pre-order: Book Depository Amazon
Each year, eight beautiful girls are chosen as Paper Girls to serve the king. It's the highest honor they could hope for...and the most cruel.

But this year, there's a ninth girl. And instead of paper, she's made of fire.

In this lush fantasy, Lei is a member of the Paper caste, the lowest and most oppressed class in Ikhara. She lives in a remote village with her father, where the decade-old trauma of watching her mother snatched by royal guards still haunts her. Now, the guards are back, and this time it's Lei they're after--the girl whose golden eyes have piqued the king's interest.

Over weeks of training in the opulent but stifling palace, Lei and eight other girls learn the skills and charm that befit being a king's consort. But Lei isn't content to watch her fate consume her. Instead, she does the unthinkable--she falls in love. Her forbidden romance becomes enmeshed with an explosive plot that threatens the very foundation of Ikhara, and Lei, still the wide-eyed country girl at heart, must decide just how far she's willing to go for justice and revenge.
This book... gosh, it sounds SO FANTASTIC. I just adore main characters with fiery traits unwilling to vow down to a fate imposed  by OTHERS. I cannot wait to meet Lei and her story in November, not to mention to be able to gaze adoringly at this stunning cover in person! ♥♥♥
