Waiting on Wednesday 11/10

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

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...

Title: Warped
Author: Maurissa Guibord
Release Date: January 11, 2011
Publisher: Delacorte Press


A love story that crosses centuries...and hangs by a thread.

"By warp and weft I bind thee..."

Tessa Brody doesn't believe in magic. Or Fate. But all that changes the day she discovers a dusty unicorn tapestry in a box of old books The wild, handsome creature woven within it draws Tessa, and frightens her too. When she pulls a silver thread from the tapestry, Tessa accidentally releases a terrible secret-one that has been contained for centuries. She also meets William de Chaucy, a young sixteenth-century nobleman with gorgeous eyes, an odd accent and haughty attitude to spare. His fate is as inextricably tied to the tapestry as Tessa's own. Together with Will, Tessa must overcome a crafty, ancient enemy. That is, if she can get along with "his lordship" long enough. And do it before her whole life unravels.

Taken from Goodreads.

Ok, is it just me, or does Warped sound abso-freakin-lutely fantastic?! I discovered this while perusing the web for hours looking for books that peaked my interest. First of all, this premise sounds like the perfect mash-up of historical fiction with paranormal and sci-fi elements. That's pretty much all of my favourite genres mixed into one story...and that basically means this sounds like it's made of pure win! Second, I have an insane cover lust for this. How beautiful is this cover? It's definitely eye-catching, and I can't wait to get my paws on it! What do you think...and what are you waiting on this week?
