"Waiting On" Wednesday (11)

“Waiting On”Wednesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here, we shine the spotlight on books that are coming out soon that we are excited about reading!

The Book Of Blood And ShadowThe Book of Blood and Shadow by: Robin Wasserman

Publication Date: April 10, 2012
Publisher: Random House Children's Books
Summary from Goodreads:

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 DeiUnbeknownst 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.

My Thoughts: This cover could very well end up being one of my favorite book covers of 2012! I have Robin's Cold Awakening series on my shelf to read but I've heard from multiple resources that she is a great author.  It sounds like my type of read with conspiracies, secrets, scandals, and lots of mystery!

Robin Wasserman is one of my favorite authors. I've only read Skinned (aka Frozen) and The Book of Blood and Shadows, but she is amazing. LOVE them both, and I hope you do, too!
