Waiting on Wednesday (9): Chime

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on:

Chime by Franny Billingsley
Releases March 17, 2011

Before Briony's stepmother died, she made sure Briony blamed herself for all the family's hardships. Now Briony has worn her guilt for so long it's become a second skin. She often escapes to the swamp, where she tells stories to the Old Ones, the spirits who haunt the marshes. But only witches can see the Old Ones, and in her village, witches are sentenced to death. Briony lives in fear her secret will be found out, even as she believes she deserves the worst kind of punishment. 

Then Eldric comes along with his golden lion eyes and mane of tawny hair. He's as natural as the sun, and treats her as if she's extraordinary. And everything starts to change. As many secrets as Briony has been holding, there are secrets even she doesn't know. 
Why I'm waiting on Chime:

Uhh, hello, cover love! Not only that, but doesn't that blurb sound interesting? Very mysterious and intriguing. What are these secrets?! Looks like it's gonna be good. Have I mentioned that cover is gorgeous?

What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? :)
