Waiting on Wednesday: RoseBlood

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that focuses on the yet-to-be released books we're waiting for. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm talking about the next book from one of my favorite authors, and it's another retelling!

Title: RoseBlood
Author: A.G. Howard
Genre: YA Retelling
Publication Date: January 10, 2017

Goodreads summary:

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. 

Why I'm Waiting:

I love A.G. Howard and I love retellings. Not only that, but Phantom of the Opera retellings are definitely not as common as princess stories! I can't pass this book up!
