Waiting on Wednesday #2



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted on Breaking the Spine. This is where we list an upcoming book that we want to read.
Summary from Good Reads.

An epic romance full of mysteries that transcend time—fans of Romeo and Juliet and The Time Traveler’s Wife will rejoice!

Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story—and hers—takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary—and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance—their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can’t last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?


First off, I love the cover.  Most books that play off of Romeo and Juliet can either do great or tank badly.  I hope this one is great.  I've been looking forward to this one for a while.  I've never read any time travel, but I think I would. 

What are you waiting on?

  1. Nice choice! That cover is gorgeous. Time travel books don't always work out so well, but hopefully this one will.
    Thanks for sharing!
