Waiting On Wednesday: Dear Killer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Dear Killer

Title: Dear Killer
Author: Katherine Ewell
Release Date: April 1, 2014
Summary (from Goodreads):

Rule One—Nothing is right, nothing is wrong.
Rule Two—Be careful.
Rule Three—Fight using your legs whenever possible, because they’re the strongest part of your body. Your arms are the weakest.
Rule Four—Hit to kill. The first blow should be the last, if at all possible.
Rule Five—The letters are the law.

Kit takes her role as London’s notorious “Perfect Killer” seriously. The letters and cash that come to her via a secret mailbox are not a game; choosing who to kill is not an impulse decision. Every letter she receives begins with “Dear Killer,” and every time Kit murders, she leaves a letter with the dead body. Her moral nihilism and thus her murders are a way of life—the only way of life she has ever known.

But when a letter appears in the mailbox that will have the power to topple Kit’s convictions as perfectly as she commits her murders, she must make a decision: follow the only rules she has ever known, or challenge Rule One, and go from there.

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: A female teenage assassin in England! And the author is only 18! I am in definite need of more chill in my reading right now, and I believe this will fit the bill nicely.

So what book are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. This book can't come fast enough, even though I know I'll need to wait. Unless it's going to be out in the UK first?

  2. I agree! I cannot wait for this to release!
