Waiting on Wednesday (12)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
I first heard about it from PageTurnersBlog.

My Waiting on Wednesday this week:
Entwined by Heather Dixon
Publication Date: March 29, 2011

Azalea is trapped. Just when she should feel that everything is before her . . . beautiful gowns, dashing suitors, balls filled with dancing . . . it's taken away. All of it.

The Keeper understands. He's trapped, too, held for centuries within the walls of the palace. And so he extends an invitation.

Every night, Azalea and her eleven sisters may step through the enchanted passage in their room to dance in his silver forest.

But there is a cost.

The Keeper likes to
keep things.

Azalea may not realize how tangled she is in his web until it is too late.

I love the cover to this book. That dress, the castle in the background, the flower design around the edges… it all looks very magical. The story itself seems like it’s going to be very intense, what with the Keeper liking to keep things. I can already foresee a lot of problems and suspense and heartbreak. This book doesn’t seem to be like anything I’ve read before, but I think I’ll like it a lot.  This is also Heather Dixon's debut novel, one that is on my 2011 Debut Author Challenge list.

If you’re interested in this book, check out the Goodreads page. There’s a giveaway for 6 copies of ENTWINED (US only).

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

This cover is just downright gorgeous, which is why I totally understand your choosing it for this week's WoW! And I just received your message and all I can say is thank you so much for sharing! I was wondering if there's some secret formula to acquiring enough time to read and now I get that we book bloggers have to find ways to make time. Thanks for following, also! And still love the layout lol.
