Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It showcases each blogger's most anticipated book. This week, my pick is When The Sea Is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen.
Summary:"A girl fakes her own suicide to escape from the strict confines of her aristocratic family and a likely arranged marriage, only to be confronted with the harsh realities of living in the slums with the working class and the ultimate discovery that the boy she’s fallen in love with is plotting a rebellion to destroy her family."
Why I Can't Wait: Oh my freaking goodness. First off, isn't the cover beautifully morbid? I don't know why, but I am in LOVE with it. Secondly, the summary is absolutely amazing. It's so different from everything out there. I'm sitting here, reading it over and over and DYING to actually sit down and read the book. I hope they release a more detailed summary. Heck, I hope they release the book sooner. I don't want to wait till next year!!!
Expected publication: February 28th 2012 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux
