Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It showcases the books we can't wait to get our hands on. This week, my pick is Abandon by Meg Cabot.
Summary: "New from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a dark, fantastical story about this world . . . and the underworld.
When Pierce first sees him, she thinks he is a murderer. She's right about one thing -- he does take lives. But not in the way she ever imagined. Pierce is drawn to the dark stranger even as she tries to uncover the mystery surrounding the tragic death of someone close to her. As she gets closer to the truth -- and the stranger -- unexpected secrets are revealed, even in her own heart."
Why I Can't Wait: Not only is the cover stunning, but I love the summary. It sounds like something I would just instantly fall in love with. While I haven't read any of Meg Cabot's other books (shame on me), I can't think of a better time to start.
Expected publication: April 26th 2011 by Scholastic Inc.
