Waiting on Wednesday (82)

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:


"Illuminated"
by Erica Orloff
Speak
Release Date: Dec 8, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:

An epic romance full of mysteries that transcend time—fans of Romeo and Juliet and The Time Traveler’s Wife will rejoice!

Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story—and hers—takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary—and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance—their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can’t last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?

I will admit, what drew me in was the fabulous cover! But then when I saw Romeo and Juliet in the description, I knew I had to read this book!


What are you waiting for this week???

Sounds very cool! But I don't know, I'm not a big fan of Romeo and Juliet, I actually kind of dislike them. lol

Still, it sounds intriguing.
