This week's Waiting on Wednesday book is:

Title: Days of Blood and Starlight
Author: Laini Taylor
Publication date: November 6th 2012
Pre-order the book: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

In this stunning sequel to the highly acclaimed "Daughter of Smoke and Bone," Karou must come to terms with who and what she is, and how far she'll go to avenge her people. Filled with heartbreak and beauty, mysteries and secrets, new characters and old favorites, Days of Blood and Starlight brings the richness, color and intensity of the first book to a brand new canvas.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone was declared a "must read" by Entertainment Weekly, was named a Best Book of the Year by, and The New York Times called it "a breath-catching romantic fantasy."
(Summary from Goodreads)

Why I'm excited for this:
I'm positive that everyone here agrees with me when I say that this cover is absolutely gorgeous! I love the designs on her face and the title font is so cool! But let's get serious, Daughter of Smoke and Bone was literally one of the best books I've read, like, EVER. And with an ending like that, I'm pretty sure anyone would want to know what would happen next. November can't come fast enough, I need my Akiva fix ASAP!
