Seventeen-year-old Julien is a romantic—he loves spending his free time at the museum poring over the great works of the Impressionists. But one night, a peach falls out of a Cezanne, Degas ballerinas dance across the floor, and Julien is not hallucinating.

The art is reacting to a curse that trapped a beautiful girl, Clio, in a painting forever. Julien has a chance to free Clio and he can't help but fall in love with her. But love is a curse in its own right. And soon paintings begin to bleed and disappear. Together Julien and Clio must save the world's greatest art... at the expense of the greatest love they've ever known.

Like a master painter herself, Daisy Whitney brings inordinate talent and ingenuity to this romantic, suspenseful, and sophisticated new novel. A beautifully decorated package makes it a must-own in print.

WhyImWaiting_v2

This book sounds like it might have a Midnight in Paris / Night at the Museum sort of feel, minus the comedy plus a little more introspective. Sweet and whimsical and light. I can’t wait to read it!!

Summer Lovin’ Read-a-Thon: Day 2


Format: select

SummerLovinBadge2Summer Lovin’ runs from July 1-7. This is a no-pressure Read-a-Thon – the point is to have fun and to tackle your summer TBR list. Set your own goals and enjoy participating in posts, challenges, and giveaways! It will all culminate in a 24-hr marathon read-a-thon, from Saturday July 6th at 10am EST, to Sunday July 7th at 10am EST. Sign ups are open through July 6th!

Today is Day Two of the Read-a-Thon, and today’s discussion topic is…

You’re the One That I Want


List your must-have summer reading (the ones you read over and over again) or give us some of your favorite recommended summer reads.

I’m dividing this topic into two sections…

1) Recommended Summer Reading

These are some lighter, what-I-consider summery reads, which I would totally consider re-reading if I had the time (darn you, Goodreads and my mile-long TBR list!!). Definitely check these out if you haven’t read them! (Especially The Art of Wishing – that book needs more love, it is ADORABLE.)

2) My Highly-Anticipated Summer Releases

I’d also like to take this opportunity to list the not-yet-released summer reads that I’m most looking forward to! Since summer officially ends on September 21st, these all come out between now and then, and I am SUPER EXCITED for all of them!

I hope everyone has these on their TBR lists, because they all look like they’re going to be AMAZING!
