Waiting on Wednesday 4/14

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and spotlights upcoming novels we just can't wait for! We all know there are a ton of great books coming out this year, but this week, I'm particularly excited for...

Title: Illyria
Author: Elizabeth Hand
Release Date: May 13, 2010

Madeleine and Rogan are first cousins, best friends, twinned souls, each other's first love. Even within their large, disorderly family - all descendants of a famous actress - their intensity and passion for theater sets them apart. It makes them a little dangerous. When they are cast in their school's production of Twelfth Night, they are forced to face their separate talents and futures, and their future together.

I just love the sound of this one - short, sweet, nearly poetic...it's a forbidden love story, but it's the very best kind. I'll admit, I have a penchant for works involving Shakespeare, so that element really excites me. I love the cover, too. It's a bit like an old-fashioned painting!

What are you waiting on this week? Leave me a link and I'll be sure to check it out!

  2. Wow I love the cover of this! It sounds very interesting. Thanks for sharing Melissa! :)

  3. Cousin Lovers.....hmmmmmmm.......Thinking about Making out with one of my cousins made me almost lose my breakfast....:)

  4. The cover is beautiful, but I don't think I could get past the 1st cousin thing to enjoy it..ugh! Here's my WOW.

  5. This one is new to me. Hmm, I have to agree about the 1st cousins issue - but, maybe that's not a main part of the plot.

  6. This is a new title for me, and hand is a talented writer, plus I love the whole theater setting and how it plays a major role in the plot.

  7. Sounds really intriguing! Don't know if I'm ok with first cousin lovers though! :)
