Dying to Read (36)- Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

This week the book I’m dying to read is CRUEL BEAUTY by Rosamund Hodge!!!!! This cover is absolutely freaking gorgeous and the synopsis OMG I do love a Beauty and the Beast retelling!!!!!!!

Cruel Beauty
Rosamund Hodge
Release Date: January 28, 2014
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Balzer + Bray (Harper)
ISBN: 978-0062224736

Since birth, Nyx has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom—all because of a reckless bargain her father struck. And since birth, she has been training to kill him.

Betrayed by her family yet bound to obey, Nyx rails against her fate. Still, on her seventeenth birthday, she abandons everything she’s ever known to marry the all-powerful, immortal Ignifex. Her plan? Seduce him, disarm him, and break the nine-hundred-year-old curse he put on her people.

But Ignifex is not at all what Nyx expected. The strangely charming lord beguiles her, and his castle—a shifting maze of magical rooms—enthralls her. As Nyx searches for a way to free her homeland by uncovering Ignifex's secrets, she finds herself unwillingly drawn to him. But even if she could bring herself to love her sworn enemy, could she refuse her duty to kill him?

Based on the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, Cruel Beauty is a dazzling love story about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny.

 So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?
