Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week, I am waiting on Catherine by April Lindner (1/2/13):

Description on Good Reads:
“A forbidden romance. A modern mystery. Wuthering Heights as you've never seen it before.

Catherine is tired of struggling musicians befriending her just so they can get a gig at her Dad's famous Manhattan club, The Underground. Then she meets mysterious Hence, an unbelievably passionate and talented musician on the brink of success. As their relationship grows, both are swept away in a fiery romance. But when their love is tested by a cruel whim of fate, will pride keep them apart?
Chelsea has always believed that her mom died of a sudden illness, until she finds a letter her dad has kept from her for years -- a letter from her mom, Catherine, who didn't die: She
disappeared. Driven by unanswered questions, Chelsea sets out to look for her -- starting with the return address on the letter: The Underground.

Told in two voices, twenty years apart,
Catherine interweaves a timeless forbidden romance with a compelling modern mystery.”

So, I just loved Jane by April Lindner. I thought it was a fantastic modern day version of Jane Eyre. And now the author has moved on to a different Bronte! And I am so excited for this. I like the idea of the two different time periods! I like that rock is incorporated into this one like it was in her other novel as well. The connections this one has to its classic counterpart seem a little more vague, and I’m excited to see how all the everything will play out! I don’t think the cover is as pretty as the last one, but I do feel like it kind of goes well with the last one. I can’t wait to read this! Bring on the Brontes!


  1. I love a romance/mystery combo. One of my favorite genres.
    Enjoy it!

  2. This one sounds so good! I haven't read April's other novel but I really want to. :)

  3. I wasn't blown away by Jane, but overall, it was a nice book. So I'm going to give this one a shot too. Great pick ^^

    Come take a look at my Wow :)

  4. Yes! I super want this one, too :)

  5. I IS WANT. I've heard meh things about this author from people (I STILL haven't read my ARC of Jane from 2010), but her stuff sounds so up my alley. I just must have!
