Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Waiting on Wednesday WOW is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that you can't wait for!

Title: Juliet Immortal
Author: Stacey Jay
Release: September 13th 2011

Goodreads Summary: "These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

I read Romeo and Juliet this year and I liked it but I think this is much more interesting sounding. And it will be a good change to see Romeo as the bad guy. Definitely one I really want to read! =)


  1. I really want to read this, plus how great is the cover! Great pick!

  2. I'm so excited to read Juliet Immortal as well! I'm not sure if you knew this, but the release date is actually next week on August 9 instead of the original September date. So yay for us, right? Less waiting! :)
