Waiting on Wednesday (10)

Waiting on Wednesday is a featured post hosted by Breaking the Spine that discusses upcoming releases that bloggers are excited about. 


This week's book I am looking forward to in 2017 is:
So I KNOW this is premature but Howard is one of my favorite authors (if you haven't checked out her Splintered Series you need to!) and I was SO excited to hear about her new series!



Author: A.G. Howard
Expected Release Date: January 10th, 2017
Publisher: Abrams
Pages: 400

In this modern day spinoff of 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, 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, a soul-deep romance blossoms. But when Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light, 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. Slated to launch January 2017.

    1. I sure hope so! I am especially interested to see Howard's take on the romance in Phantom of the Opera because the storytelling in the Splintered Series was fantastic. I loved the love triangle and how she resolved it in the end of the series!
      Thanks for stopping by Kristin!

    2. O.M.G. You read Phantom in FRENCH in HIGH SCHOOL?! Yikes. I all of a sudden feel very... unaccomplished. LOL But no, I've never read the book. I've seen (and loved) the stage production several times (once in London which was a dream come true!) and the movie. But I've never felt led to tackle the book.

      Still can't believe you read it in French... *SMH*... :)
