Distractive Obsessions #02

Distractive Obsessions are books that are going to be released very soon and that I'm dying to read - books that I know I'm going to be obsessed with until I'll finally hold them in my hands and read them.

This week's pick is GRAVE MERCY by Robin LaFevers.
It's going to be published on April 3rd, 2012 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
ISBN: 9780547628349
| pre-order: The Book Depository / Amazon / B&N

Goodreads Summary:
Why be the sheep, when you can be the wolf?

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Ismae's most important assignment takes her straight into the high court of Brittany—where she finds herself woefully under prepared—not only for the deadly games of intrigue and treason, but for the impossible choices she must make. For how can she deliver Death’s vengeance upon a target who, against her will, has stolen her heart?

While I already have an eARC of Grave Mercy thanks to NetGalley, this one is distracting me more than any other book at the moment. Since it's going to be released in a few days many reviews are appearing all over the blogosphere and so far I don't think I've ever read a negative (or even mixed) one. Everyone seems to love this and I cannot wait to find out what I'll be thinking about it. My expectations are very high and while all of this hype makes me a bit scared to end up being disappointed by Grave Mercy, I need to read this as soon as possible.

 Which book are you obsessing over at the moment?
