Waiting on Wednesday: The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco!

I've had my sights on this one since a long time ago when they started sending ARCs and everyone was talking about it.

Publication date: March 7th, 2017
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire

A Publishers Weekly Most Anticipated Young Adult Book of Spring 2017!

In the captivating start to a new, darkly lyrical fantasy series for readers of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir, Tea can raise the dead, but resurrection comes at a price...

Let me be clear: I never intended to raise my brother from his grave, though he may claim otherwise. If there's anything I've learned from him in the years since, it's that the dead hide truths as well as the living.

When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she's a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.

In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha-one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles...and make a powerful choice.

Memoirs of a Geisha meets The Name of the Wind in this brilliant new fantasy series by Rin Chupeco!

Like I said, this book has been talked about quite a lot... for good and for bad. I've seen so many different reviews! Apparently one of the "issues" is the writing style because it's too descriptive or something which some people liked and others didn't. Another "issue" was the plot because it was too confusing (?)

I don't know but now I'm curious myself xD have any of you read it? Did you like it?

PS: That cover is beautiful. I love the colors.

Are you excited about The Bone Witch?
