Waiting on Wednesday (72)

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:

"Darker Still"
by Leanna Renee Hieber
Sourcebooks Fire
Release Date: Nov 1, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:

The Picture of Dorian Gray meets Pride and Prejudice, with a dash of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.New York City, 1882. Seventeen-year-old Natalie Stewart's latest obsession is a painting of the handsome British Lord Denbury. Something in his striking blue eyes calls to her. As his incredibly life-like gaze seems to follow her, Natalie gets the uneasy feeling that details of the painting keep changing...
Jonathan Denbury's soul is trapped in the gilded painting by dark magic while his possessed body commits unspeakable crimes in the city slums. He must lure Natalie into the painting, for only together can they reverse the curse and free his damaged soul.


Pride and Prejudice + Picture of Dorian Gray + Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde = Something I want to read!! And  I love the historical setting!!

What are you waiting for this week???
