Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some retellings:

Catherine by April Lindner

True love never dies in this modern retelling of one of literature’s most haunting star-crossed romances, Wuthering Heights.
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 brief 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. --Goodreads
I was looking for fairy-tale retellings one day and discovered this awesome read.  I know Lindner is known for her Jane Eyre retelling but a Wuthering Heights retelling.  Yes, this is going to be fantastic!  I can't wait until this one comes out.  The cover looks so... independent like that girl on the front is just giving out confidence whoever is walking past.  It is going to be awesome and hearing a new take on this old tale, modern even, is going to be great!  I just have to wait til January.

What are you waiting for, this fine Wednesday?

  1. I think I saw this one another time and thought it sounded really good! I haven't read Wuthering Heights, but I do have a copy and hope to read it before the end of the year.
