Waiting on Wednesday...Mystic City by Theo Lawrence!

The lovely Jill (a fellow Alabamian!) over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on. 

I came across this week's selection on Goodreads the other day and was instantly grabbed by the awesome cover. The synopsis hooked me, and I cannot WAIT to read it. Please be sure to add to your TBRs...

product description from goodreads.com

Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including herself.

Doesn't that sound great? The cover is amazing, and the plot is oddly reminiscent of Romeo & Juliet, which only makes me wanna read it more! And the best part? It comes out next week!


  1. Sounds lovely! I hope you enjoy it when it comes out :)

  2. Oh, man. This does sound totally fabulous. I love the idea of anything arranged romantically--it pretty much guarantees instant conflict. When paired up with gaps in someone's memory, it becomes all the more a recipe for trouble. I haven't seen this one before. Thanks so much for sharing. :)
