Waiting on Wednesday: Romancing the Dark in the City of Light

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

Romancing the Dark in the City of Light by Ann Jacobus
Pub. Date: October 6, 2015


Goodreads says, "A troubled teen, living in Paris, is torn between two boys, one of whom encourages her to embrace life, while the other—dark, dangerous, and attractive—urges her to embrace her fatal flaws. Haunting and beautifully written, with a sharp and distinctive voice that could belong only to this character, Romancing the Dark in the City of Light is an unforgettable young adult novel. Summer Barnes just moved to Paris to repeat her senior year of high school. After being kicked out of four boarding schools, she has to get on the right track or she risks losing her hefty inheritance. Summer is convinced that meeting the right guy will solve everything. She meets two. Moony, a classmate, is recovering against all odds from a serious car accident, and he encourages Summer to embrace life despite how hard it can be to make it through even one day. But when Summer meets Kurt, a hot, mysterious older man who she just can't shake, he leads her through the creepy underbelly of the city-and way out of her depth. When Summer's behavior manage to alienate everyone, even Moony, she's forced to decide if a life so difficult is worth living. With an ending that'll surprise even the most seasoned reader, Romancing the Dark in the City of Light is an unputdownable and utterly compelling novel. "
Ok, so I know this one sounds like another young adult read with a love triangle, but seriously. Paris. I can't say no. Also, it sounds a little bit darker than what I was expecting. What do you guys think?

    1. I enjoy love triangles if they are done right or are new and fresh. If they are the same old, same old, I sort of cringe. So, let's hope this one is done well! Thanks for visiting, Emma!

  3. Not sure if this would be a book for me (the main character sounds difficult to like) but I do love the setting. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it!

    1. I know! I am a little nervous about that since she is apparently very troubled, but the setting of Paris is enough to intrigue me a bit. Thanks for visiting, Christina!

  10. I've never read this book but is it bad of me that I'm already partial to the one described as "dark, dangerous, and attractive"? LOL.

  11. I don't automatically write off books with love triangles, but I feel like they are rarely done well. They often just read like "obstacles" for the two who are meant to be together. I am curious about the Paris boarding school, though. Great pick!

    1. Yeah, either love triangles really work for me or I loathe them, so we will see. It's the setting that really has me interested as well. Thanks for visiting, Natalie!
