Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I'm particularly excited for...
Author: Suzanne Selfors
Release Date: January 4, 2011
When you’re the daughter of the bestselling Queen of Romance, life should be pretty good. But 16-year-old Alice Amorous has been living a lie ever since her mother was secretly hospitalized for mental illness. After putting on a brave front for months, time is running out. The next book is overdue, and the Queen can’t write it. Alice needs a story for her mother—and she needs one fast.
That’s when she meets Errol, a strange boy who claims to be Cupid, who insists that Alice write about the greatest love story in history: his tragic relationship with Psyche. As Alice begins to hear Errol’s voice in her head and see things she can’t explain, she must face the truth—that she’s either inherited her mother’s madness, or Errol is for real.

This one sounds both sweet and cute, plus I'm loving this twist of the paranormal! I don't think I've read one with Cupid involved before, so this should be a treat for me. I also think there could be a lot of depth in the novel in terms of Alice dealing with her mother's illness. I really think Mad Love has the all the makings of a diamond in the rough. While the cover might not exactly be swoon-worthy for my taste, I quite like the simplicity of it. What do you think...and what are you waiting on this week?
