Waiting on Wednesday: Illuminated

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Illuminated by Erica Orloff
Pub. Date: December 8, 2011


Goodreads says, "Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story—and hers—takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary—and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance—their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can’t last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history."

*One of the write-ups I read for this book said that fans of Romeo and Juliet as well as The Time Traveler's Wife will enjoy this book and with that combination, I'm sure I'll love it.  Plus, how could I walk past this book in a book store with a cover like that? It's gorgeous! Too bad we have to wait till December. Boo!
