I Can't Be at BEA, But It's Okay!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill from Breaking the Spine that showcases upcoming releases that we can't wait to claim as our own & aren't afraid to tell that to the world!




Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancé, she has everything a girl could desire. Yet ever since her parents’ death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape.  

When Cass stumbles upon a murdered woman—practically in her own backyard—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of courtesans, killers, and secret societies. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a mysterious artist with a mischievous grin... and a spectacular skill for trouble. Can Cassandra find the murderer, before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancé, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?  

Beauty, love, romance, and mystery weave together in a stunning novel that’s as seductive and surprising as the city of Venice itself.


Coming Soon on 30 October 2012.


This book is a terrible must for me. I cannot resist historical fiction or a good love story. So Fiona Paul hands me the perfect combination of both! 

How can I not wait for this? 

Plus, this book is amongst the ones featured in BEA and I will have to make up for my absence at Armchair BEA by doing this book justice. I will promote it, right here, right now!

And since I already have an ongoing giveaway with 16 amazing YA titles, I won't host a new giveaway either. Hehe...

What are you waiting for? :)

  11. I hadn't heard of this before but it sounds amazing! I can't remember reading any book set in Venice, especially not one during the Renaissance - it's sounds really unique. Also a beautiful cover never hurts :)

    1. Yeah, a beautiful cover never hurts! Hmm... The only book I can recall is The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke. It's quite good too :)

  12. Wow, definitely looks great. And set in Venice? I had a crush on that place once, so I'll definitely be reading this. Great pick, and thanks for stopping by :)

  13. Hey Sel! :D Just wanted to recommend a book. It's called Unearthly, the cover's beautiful, and I think it's even better than Firelight (and that's very hard to beat!) Not sure if you've picked it up, but please do, I found mine at the library, and READ IT ASAP. OMG. YOU HAVE TO.

    1. Thanks, Shing! I just went over to Goodreads to check it out, and guess what? I finally realized that this book is the one about Tucker Avery!!! I've been hearing his name all around, all the bloggers drool over him. SO YAY <3 THANKS FOR RECOMMENDING! *hugs* Okay, I will go read it asap! I still have about 5 more books to complete before that, but it will definitely be the first on my TBR. I promise :D
