Waiting On Wednesday #26

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


This weeks "can't-wait-to-read" pick for me is:

The Book of Blood and Shadow
Author: Robin Wasserman
Publication Date: April 10th, 2012

"It was like a nightmare, but there was no waking up.  When the night began, Nora had two best friends and an embarrassingly storybook one true love.  When it ended, she had nothing but blood on her hands and an echoing scream that stopped only when the tranquilizers pierced her veins and left her in the merciful dark. 

But the next morning, it was all still true: Chris was dead.  His girlfriend Adriane, Nora's best friend, was catatonic. And Max, Nora's sweet, smart, soft-spoken Prince Charming, was gone. He was also—according to the police, according to her parents, according to everyone—a murderer.
Desperate to prove his innocence, Nora follows the trail of blood, no matter where it leads. It ultimately brings her to the ancient streets of Prague, where she is drawn into a dark web of secret societies and shadowy conspirators, all driven by a mad desire to possess something that might not even exist. For buried in a centuries-old manuscript is the secret to ultimate knowledge and communion with the divine; it is said that he who controls the Lumen Dei controls the world. Unbeknownst to her, Nora now holds the crucial key to unlocking its secrets. Her night of blood is just one piece in a puzzle that spans continents and centuries. Solving it may be the only way she can save her own life." ~Goodreads


I can't wait to get this book!! I've heard some great things from early reviewers (whom I envy lol) and I'm dying to read this. It sounds like such an intriguing, suspenseful, and thrilling mystery, not to mention the historical element. Needless to say I'm sold on this one, and April 10th just can't seem to get here fast enough for me! Plus the cover is awesome, I love how you see the buildings reflected in her eye, it adds to the mystery (or at least I think so).

What are you waiting on?
