Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Today has been pretty quiet-- it's really gray and windy outside so I've just been wrapped up in reading Graceling by Kristin Cashore, and decided to do a little book meme-ing this afternoon :) Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by the lovely Jill at Breaking the Spine.

So, I am sure that some of you have already seen this book and that it probably caught your eye by the absolutely beautiful and romantic cover-- well, it sounds like the story will be just as good! Here is a summary of Illuminated by Erica Orloff:

Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story-and hers-takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary-and that of Heloise and Abelard's ancient romance-their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can't last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history? 



Illuminated is set to be released December 8, 2011 and it is one that I am definitely looking forward to!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! That is such a beautiful cover!

    The book I chose is non-fiction, but reads like a novel. It's crazy that some of the best stories are true and not a work of fiction!

    Hope you have a great Wednesday!
