Waiting on Wednesday


"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's WoW selection is...

When You Were Mine
"What's in a name, Shakespeare? I'll tell you: everything.

"Rosaline knows that she and Rob are destined to be together. Rose has been waiting for years for Rob to kiss her--and when he finally does, it's perfect. But then Juliet moves back to town. Juliet, who used to be Rose's best friend. Juliet, who now inexplicably hates her. Juliet, who is gorgeous, vindictive, and a little bit crazy...and who has set her sights on Rob. He doesn't even stand a chance.

Rose is devastated over losing Rob to Juliet. This is not how the story was supposed to go. And when rumors start swirling about Juliet's instability, her neediness, and her threats of suicide, Rose starts to fear not only for Rob's heart, but also for his life. Because Shakespeare may have gotten the story wrong, but we all still know how it ends. ~ From GoodReads


Why I'm Waiting ~ Do I really have to say anything? I mean...kissing, drama and Shakespeare sounds like a winning combination to me.

Hardcover, 334 pages
Expected publication: May 1st 2012 by Simon Pulse

  3. I think I saw this one before but not sure if I'll read it because I get really pissed off in these types of stories. When this other bitch comes in and steals the girl's man I'll get all upset! LOL

  9. I haven't decided if I'll dive into some contemporary books yet. I'll wait to see what people think of this one. Maybe I'll give it a try when it comes out.

    1. You should try some contemps. It's such a nice change of pace sometimes. But I get it, your blog is Magical Urban Fantasy Reads.

    2. My blog name isn't really why I don't read them...I've NEVER read a book that I really liked that wasn't Fantasy or Urban Fantasy.

      That is why I picked the name. :)
