Say Bye to Your Comfort Zone: Ironskin by Tina Connolly

Sometimes stepping out of your reading comfort zone is hard, well at least for me. I've been a dedicated YA reader and never really had the urge to try something new. Well, this year that changes. I will primarily still read my first love in YA, but I want to spice it up with who knows maybe some paranormal romance?

Anywho, this meme, "Say Bye to Your Comfort Zone" will feature a book I'd like to possibly read and who knows maybe it'll catch your eye too. :)

I'd love to hear which book you've been thinking about breaking your reading comfort zone, so make sure you share it with us all by commenting.

Ironskin (Ironskin, #1) by Tina Connolly
Release Date: October 2012
Publisher: Tor Books

Summary: Jane Eliot wears an iron mask. It's the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain -- the ironskin. Now Jane returns to the war-torn country to help a fey-cursed child. Helping the unruly Dorie suppress her curse is hard enough -- she certainly didn't expect to fall for the girl's father, the enigmatic artist Mr. Rochart. But her blossoming crush is stifled by her own scars, and by his parade of women. Ugly women, who enter his closed studio -- and come out as beautiful as the fey. Jane knows he cannot love her, just as she knows that she must wear iron for the rest of her life. But what if neither of these things are true? Step by step Jane must unlock the secrets of her new life -- and discover just how far she will go to become whole again.

My Reason: Firstly, holy smokes that cover is strikingly beautiful! Also, the summary sounds very unique, especially the whole iron mask concept. Yes, Leonardo Dicaprio played a similar role in a movie, but I haven't seen it with a girl before. I'm really intrigued, I'm looking forward to reading this start to the Ironskin series.

I came across the synopsis before and it sounded good, but damn that cover! I'm sold XD

Wow. I never heard of this. At first I wondered if it was a retelling of The Man in the Iron Mask. It sounds intriguing!
