Waiting on Wednesday #40

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine where you can spotlight an upcoming release that you're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on.....
Still Star-Crossed by Melinda Taub
Releases on: July 9th 2013

Romeo and Juliet are gone. Will love live on? Despite the glooming peace that's settled on Verona after the recent tragedy, Montagues and Capulets are brawling in the streets. Faced with more bloody battles, Prince Escalus concludes that the only way to truly marry the fortunes of these two families is to literally marry them together. Everyone is skeptical, but none more so than the pair selected, for the most eligible Montague bachelor is Benvolio, Romeo's best friend, still anguished by the loss of his companions, and the chosen Capulet maid is Juliet's older cousin Rosaline, the girl Romeo first loved and whose refusal of Romeo's affection paved the way for bloodshed. Contrary to their late cousins, there's no love lost between Benvolio and Rosaline, yet they forge a bond to end the renewed feud not only to escape their forced betrothal, but to save their lives and the city of Verona itself.

Alright. So we've all read Romeo & Juliet. And if you haven't...well. Didn't you go to school? Ha! But what happens after Romeo & Juliet experience their fateful ending. Personally, I've never really thought about it....until now. I'm hoping to find out in Still Star-Crossed!! Eeee! This looks good. The prospect of this new romance sounds amazing!
What do you think of the sound of Still Star-Crossed!
And will you be adding it to your TBR list?

  1. The cover is GORGEOUS! I think I might enjoy this one especially since this is AFTER the inevitable deaths of both.. I will have to keep an eye on it.
