Waiting on Wednesday (April 13)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This weekly meme shares the upcoming books that I'm most excited about.

Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay

"These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love. (From Goodreads)

When I first found out about this from Stacey's website I was so happy! I've read her other book, The Locket and she's an amazing writer. Plus I'm a sucker for any book based on Romeo and Juliet and this re-telling sounds so awesome. Great pick!

I'm looking forward to this one, too! I'm usually not a big fan of retellings, but I'll definitely try this one. I lovely cover, as well!

Katie said...

oh the cover....don't you just wish your just wish you were her??

Christina said...

this one is on my to-reads list as well :). The cover is gorgeous, love the premise--(agents of light? "Lovers" battle to the end? A Shakespeare retelling that isn't Midsummer Night's Dream with faeries? Check, check, check!). Also, I saw that you are reading The Everafter right now, and that too sounds awesome :). Great choice!

What????? I hate Romeon and Juliet because they are such idiots, but this one sounds like it could have some guts to it! Maybe a little redemption for the stupid kids in the original? thanks for adding this one!
