Waiting on Wednesday (11)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by "Breaking the Spine" were bloggers can post their anticipated upcoming publications!

Hard decisions these "Waiting on Wednesdays" are becoming. I honestly can say that todays post I could not decide on a book, I felt like I was either running out of books to put up for discusion OR I just wasn't anticipating anymore books (but that couldn't be it, lol). But I have found the perfect tool to aid me in my decisions, and to add more books to my TBR pile. "Listopia" on is a fabulous tool! I didn't even know it existed till recently, lol. So here is a definite book I want to get my hands on as soon as it comes out :)

"Arcadia Awakens" by Kai Meyer
Publication date: February 14, 2012
Publisher: Balzer & Bray (Harper Collins Canada)

"To Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Mafia families and its reputation for murder and intrigue, is just that—exotic and wholly unknown. But when her life in Brooklyn begins to fall apart, she must travel there, to her family’s ancestral home, where centuries of family secrets await her."

"Once there, Rosa falls head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose handsome looks and savage grace both fascinate and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and her aunt and sister believe Alessandro is only using Rosa to infiltrate the Alcantara clan. And when Rosa encounters a tiger one night—a tiger with very familiar eyes—she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem."

"Hidden caves, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a history of familial bloodlust mean that Rosa can’t trust anyone. Torn between loyalty to her family and love for their mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love…or run as far and as fast as she can."

  3. Thanks guys! :) I love your comments, lol. I was definitely drawn to it due to the whole Romeo & Juliet vibe, I'm always a sucker for them, lol. But also near the end of the description it has this very paranormal feel, although we'll have to see if it pans out the way I think it might, lol.

    @Giselle, it was a first that I came across it a little while back and was surprised I hadn't heard of it before, lol.
