Waiting on Wednesday (36)


This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of! 

When You Were Mine
By Rebecca Serle
Release Date: May 1, 2012
Summary: In this intensely romantic, modern recounting of the greatest love story ever told, Romeo’s original intended—Juliet’s cousin Rosaline—tells her side of the tale. What’s in a name, Shakespeare? I’ll tell you: Everything.     Rosaline knows that she and Rob are destined to be together. Rose has been waiting for years for Rob to kiss her—and when he finally does, it’s perfect. But then Juliet moves back to town. Juliet, who used to be Rose’s best friend. Juliet, who now inexplicably hates her. Juliet, who is gorgeous, vindictive, and a little bit crazy...and who has set her sights on Rob. He doesn’t even stand a chance.     Rose is devastated over losing Rob to Juliet. This is not how the story was supposed to go. And when rumors start swirling about Juliet’s instability, her neediness, and her threats of suicide, Rose starts to fear not only for Rob’s heart, but also for his life. Because Shakespeare may have gotten the story wrong, but we all still know how it ends…. 


I seriously cannot wait for this one. I love any modern retellings of classics, and Romeo and Juliet? One of my favorite tragic love stories ever! Haha, but seriously. This sounds so good! Who would have thought to tell the story from Rosaline's side? I'm so excited to see how it goes! And I absolutely love the cover. You know what the most exciting part is? I'm getting an ARC of this book! Ahhhhh I was so excited when the publisher contacted me that I literally got up and did a little jig. Then, I figured out that the screenwriters for 500 Days of Summer are the screenwriters for the movie of this book! And Lily Collins might play the lead role! So I'm even MORE excited (if that's even possible) to read a copy of this book! Hopefully my copy comes soon!!! I'm not sure how much longer I can wait!

  14. Ooh, I've seen this title and cover around, but I had no idea what the story was about. Romeo and Juliet is one of my favourite Shakespeare plays, so I am DEFINITELY going to have to check this out. Great pick! :)

  18. Ooh, I absolutely love the premise of this one! There's a book called Romeo's Ex, which is about Rosaline, which I've always wanted to read. A modern retelling sounds great, although I'm a bit worried about how this one is going to treat the character of Juliet. However, I loved the movie 500 Days of Summer, so I'm excited!
