Sorry about missing Wishlist Wednesday last week, guys! I had a bit of a personal setback, but this week I'm back on track and ready to go. Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper, meant to bring attention to the books we are hoping to read next.
This week, I'm lusting for Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay. Here's the Amazon summary:
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.
As a hopeless romantic, I'm a huge Romeo and Juliet fan. I loved Anne Fortier's novel Juliet, which is another twist on the classical tale, and I'm hoping Stacey Jay's attempt to create her own unique take on the story won't disappoint. Putting Romeo and Juliet against each other as enemies is definitely unexpected; I hope its not so strange that I can't get a grasp on the story! Either way, I'm excited to check it out for myself.
