Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

Wednesday is my absolute favorite day of the week because I get to share the books that I am super excited about and can't wait to read.

Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: September 9th 2014 by EgmontUSA

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A romantic, historical retelling of classic Gothic horror featuring Edgar Allan Poe and his character Annabel Lee, from a New York Times best-selling author.

Summoned to her father's home in 1820's Philadelphia, a girl finds herself in the midst of a rash of gruesome murders in which he might be implicated. She is torn romantically between her father's assistants-one kind and proper, one mysterious and brooding-who share a dark secret and may have more to do with the violent events than they're letting on.

I was looking forward to reading this one, but I see it's getting some really low ratings on Goodreads..... Luckily for me, I don't read reviews of books I am going to review because I don't want to taint my own experience. I'll be sure to let you know if I enjoy it!

What are you waiting on this week?

  4. I don't really read reviews either and because I love Edgar Allan Poe, there's a pretty big chance I'll be reading this one at some point! Thanks for sharing this one :)

    1. Most of the time I don't agree with the ratings on GR. I find that a lot of early review ratings are questionable, at least to me. That's why I don't read the actual reviews - I want to make up my own mind. Thanks for stopping by.
