Waiting on Wednesday (71)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!


This week I chose:


"David"
by Mary Hoffman
Bloomsbury
Release Date: Oct 11, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:

Michelangelo’s statue of David is famous around the world. Millions flock to Italy every year to admire the physical perfection of the young man captured within the marble. But the identity of the model has never been known . . . until now. In this epic tale, acclaimed author Mary Hoffman imagines the story of Gabriele, a na├»ve but incredibly handsome young man who is hired as Michelangelo’s model, only to find himself drawn into a world of spies, political treachery, and murder. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Florence in its most turbulent times, this is a rich, colorful and thrilling tale that gives life to one of the world’s greatest masterpieces.

Oooh, this sounds so awesome! I love that it features art history! Who wouldn't want to know who David really was!? Basically, I can't wait for this one!
