Wishlist Wednesday is a new weekly event started by Dani at Pen to Paper, another great book blog for those of you who like YA. Every Wednesday, I`ll be posting about a book that's on my wishlist. Please leave a comment with your thoughts if you've read the book! I always love to hear from you.
Right now, I'm dying to get my hands on Mozart's Last Aria by Matt Rees. I'm a huge fan of historical fiction (if you couldn't tell already!) so I adore that this story is focused on 18th century Austria, a setting that appeals to my romantic tendencies and lights up my imagination. Not to mention the gorgeous cover photo: that beautiful blue dress contrasted against the frozen white landscape seems so mysterious and suspenseful.
Award-winning author Matt Rees takes readers to 18th century Austria, where Mozart’s estranged sister Nannerl stumbles into a world of ambition, conspiracy, and immortal music while attempting to uncover the truth about her brother’s suspicious death. Did Mozart’s life end in murder? Nannerl must brave dire circumstances to find out, running afoul of the secret police, the freemasons, and even the Austrian Emperor himself as she delves into a scandal greater than she had ever imagined.Expect a review on this one in the future!
Mozart's Last Aria by Matt Rees will be released on November 1st, 2011.
