Waiting on Wednesday #9 - Juliet Immortal

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am waiting on:

Juliet Immortal
by Stacey Jay
Release Date: Sept. 13, 2011
Publisher: Random House (Teens)

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. -Goodreads

Why I'm waiting on this book:

"Romeo and Juliet, the greatest love story ever told, is a lie."
Right there. The cover alone makes me pine for this book. I absolutely love Romeo and Juliet. Anything relating to them I'm going to adore. The summary sounds captivating, and the cover is gorgeous as well. I think this is going to be a really great read!

You can find more information about this book on Goodreads, or on Random House's website!

What are you WoWing for this week?? Leave a comment with your link so I can check it out!

  6. Confession: I didn't read the summary until you posted this, I just kind of skipped it because I thought the 'Romeo/Juliet' stuff is sometimes overdone. THIS I have never even conceived! I like, A LOT! Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
