Waiting on Wednesday (18)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I am waiting on:

Juliet by Anne Fortier
Publication date: August 24, 2010


When Julie Jacobs leaves for Italy per the instructions of her late aunt's will, she never imagines that she'll be thrust into a centuries-old feud, not to mention one of the most legendary romances of all time. However, as she uncovers the story of her ancestor, Giulietta, whose love for a man named Romeo proved ill-fated, Julie finds herself increasingly under threat, and can't help but feel that the past and present are very much connected. Juliet is a gripping historical novel of great passion and scope from a remarkable debut author.
This sounds like such an amazing book. One librarian who read the ARC told me that it was fantastic. I really enjoyed O, Juliet by Robin Maxwell and this looks like it will be even better. I can't wait to read it!

  10. I wonder if this book will be as tragic as Romeo and Juliet? Sounds good, either way! Awesome pick Christina!
