Waiting on Wednesday (9)



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  It’s designed for bloggers to spotlight the upcoming releases that they simply can’t wait to read.

My pick for this week is by the author of ‘The Mockingbirds,’ a novel that is an absolute must read. Her latest novel sounds like a cross between Stephanie Perkins and Ally Carter. Squee.


Title: 'Starry Nights’
Author: Daisy Whitney
Publisher: Bloomsbury
Pages: 272
Release Date: 3 Sept. 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

Seventeen-year-old Julien is a romantic—he loves spending his free time at the museum poring over the great works of the Impressionists. But one night, a peach falls out of a Cezanne, Degas ballerinas dance across the floor, and Julien is not hallucinating.

The art is reacting to a curse that trapped a beautiful girl, Clio, in a painting forever. Julien has a chance to free Clio and he can't help but fall in love with her. But love is a curse in its own right. And soon paintings begin to bleed and disappear. Together Julien and Clio must save the world's greatest art . . . at the expense of the greatest love they've ever known.

Like a master painter herself, Daisy Whitney brings inordinate talent and ingenuity to this romantic, suspenseful, and sophisticated new novel. A beautifully decorated package makes it a must-own in print.

What are you waiting for this week?

Happy Reading!

  2. Everything about this book sounds perfect! It definitely seems like a Stephanie Perkins-Ally Carter hybrid, but with an awesome fantasy element, too.
