Waiting on Wednesday (106)


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:

"Kissing Shakespeare"

by Pamela Mingle
Delacorte
Release Date: Aug 14, 2012

The following description is from goodreads.com:

Miranda has Shakespeare in her blood: she hopes one day to become a Shakespearean actor like her famous parents. At least, she does until her disastrous performance in her school’s staging of The Taming of the Shrew. Humiliated, Miranda skips the opening-night party. All she wants to do is hide.

Fellow cast member, Stephen Langford, has other plans for Miranda. When he steps out of the backstage shadows and asks if she’d like to meet Shakespeare, Miranda thinks he’s a total nutcase. But before she can object, Stephen whisks her back to 16th century England—the world Stephen’s really from. He wants Miranda to use her acting talents and modern-day charms on the young Will Shakespeare. Without her help, Stephen claims, the world will lose its greatest playwright.

Miranda isn’t convinced she’s the girl for the job. Why would Shakespeare care about her? And just who is this infuriating time traveler, Stephen Langford? Reluctantly, she agrees to help, knowing that it’s her only chance of getting back to the present and her “real” life. What Miranda doesn’t bargain for is finding true love… with no acting required.
Ooh, Shakespeare! I must read this!

This sounds really promising. I love Shakespeare and I liked Saving Juliet so maybe I'll enjoy this one too.

How cool! To meet your literary idol. Fun concept. Reminds me a but if Saving Juliet by Suzanne Selfors.

I love the cover, and even though Shakespeare is not in my list of most beloved authors, I would like to read this.

As of late, I've been interested in reading books set during the 1400s and 1500s. I'm definitely adding this to my list! It's fun to read something different.
