Waiting on Wednesday (001)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are anticipating.

This week, we are both anticipating:

Slice of Cherry, by Dia Reeves

Happiness is a bloody knife. 

Kit and Fancy Cordelle are sisters of the best kind: best friends, best confidantes, and best accomplices. The daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer, Kit and Fancy are used to feeling like outsiders, and that’s just the way they like it. But in Portero, where the weird and wild run rampant, the Cordelle sisters are hardly the oddest or most dangerous creatures around. 

It’s no surprise when Kit and Fancy start to give in to their deepest desire—the desire to kill. What starts as a fascination with slicing open and stitching up quickly spirals into a gratifying murder spree. Of course, the sisters aren’t killing just anyone, only the people who truly deserve it. But the girls have learned from the mistakes of their father, and know that a shred of evidence could get them caught. So when Fancy stumbles upon a mysterious and invisible doorway to another world, she opens a door to endless possibilities....

Why Amanda wants it:
    This one sounds fun. I've read a few books that were from the perspective of the killer, but none of them sounded as light and humorous as Slice of Cherry. I'm anxious to find out who these girls think "deserve" to be murdered. As for Fancy opening a doorway to another world, this adds an extra touch of fantasy, and you know how I love the impossible.

Why Shanise wants it:
   I loved Dia Reeves' book, Bleeding Violet. The sarcastic & smart ass MC was one of my favorite things about the book. I didn't expect it to be such a paranormal type book. But it was, and it was done well. Now to have twins in a paranormal book, I can only imagine it's double the Hanna, smartass-ness! I actually thought Slice of Cherry was a sequel to Bleeding Violet because of a doll that ate cherries(you'd have to read the book to understand), but it sounds just as fun.
I wonder if these "doors" she opens are like the "doors" that Hanna found...I'm excited! :-)
P.S. that cover is amazing! Ha.
