Waiting on Wednesday: Roseblood by A.G. Howard

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!


     In this modern day spinoff of Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. 
     Hoping creative direction will help, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera. At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn -- an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself, but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks.
     As the two discover an otherworldly connection, a soul-deep romance blossoms. But when Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light, he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known. Slated to launch January 2017.

Why I'm Waiting: This is the first Phantom re-telling I've ever really seen in YA and I think that's really awesome. I love the uniqueness that YA is bringing to the table lately. (Well as much can be done in a retelling lol) Also I LOVE A.G. Howard!Her writing and last retelling was good, but I'm expcting this one to be even better! And the words about the romance make me NEED this right now! And lastly, if all that doesn't make you want to read it, JUST LOOK AT THAT EFFING COVER OMGGG.

Will you be waiting on this with me?
What are you waiting on this week?
