“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine.
My pick for this week is:
by Christoph Marzi
February 2nd 2012 by Orchard Books
The night that Heaven lost her heart was cold and moonless. But the blade that sliced it out was warm with her dark blood…
David Pettyfer is taking a shortcut over the dark rooftops of London’s brooding houses, when he literally stumbles across Heaven: a strange, beautiful, distraught girl who says that bad men have stolen her heart. Yet she’s still alive…
And so begins David and Heaven’s wild, exciting and mysterious adventure – to find Heaven’s heart, and to discover the incredible truth about her origins.
Part thriller, part love story and part fairy tale, this brilliantly original novel from a bestselling German author will take your breath away…
It will take my breath away, huh? Brilliant and original? I’m totally on board. I love the concept of someone’s heart being stolen… literally… and I love modern fairytales. Plus, I love the cover. This book was originally published in Germany and is now making it’s way to the States this winter. Yay!
So what are you looking forward to this week?
