Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine. On every Wednesday you discuss a book that you are highly anticipating.

This week’s pick is something that I had discovered at New York Comic Con and although I received an ARC, I wanted to show all of you because IT SOUNDS SO GOOD!!!! Plus it’s getting so much buzz. The story sounds unique and authentic with a retelling twist. Without further ado:

Roseblood by A.G. Howard

28818314.jpgRelease Date: January 10, 2017

Synopsis from Goodreads:

In this modern day spin on Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. Hoping creative direction will help her, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera. 

At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn—an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself, but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks. As the two discover an otherworldly connection and a soul-deep romance blossoms, Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light and he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known.

A. G. Howard brings the romantic storytelling that Splintered fans adore to France—and an entirely new world filled with lavish romance and intrigue—in a retelling inspired by a story that has captivated generations. Fans of both the Phantom of the Opera musical and novel, as well as YA retellings such as Marissa Meyer’s Cinder, will devour RoseBlood.

  2. I’ve been hearing about this from everyone lately. I saw some people talking about not getting an ARC, and I had no idea what they were talking about a while back. That cover is so cool. And I love Phantom of the Opera! I’m adding this to my TBR right now. 🙂

  3. Great pick for this week. I already have this one on my to-read list and I am so so excited to get my hands on it. I can’t say I am a massive fan of the original Phantom of the Opera story but I do love retellings (mainly fairytale retellings but this could work as well) and A.G. Howard so I think this book will be a winning combination.
    Plus the cover is amazing as well! 😀

  5. If I participated in Waiting on Wednesday, this book would be listed every time! I requested it on NetGalley but got denied. But I did get approved for some good ones, so I guess I’ll be waiting with you! 😉
