Waiting on Wednesday {19}

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where bloggers post about much-awaited releases!

Title: The Beautiful and the Cursed (The Dispossessed #1)
Author: Page Morgan
Release Date: May 14th 2013
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers
After a bizarre accident, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, Gabby, trading a world full of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris.
In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house Ingrid’s twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abandoned abbey, its roof lined with stone gargoyles that could almost be mistaken for living, breathing creatures.
And Grayson has gone missing.
No one seems to know of his whereabouts but Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant at their new home.
Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead—she can feel it deep in her soul—but she knows he’s in grave danger. It will be up to her and Gabby to navigate the twisted path to Grayson, a path that will lead Ingrid on a discovery of dark secrets and otherworldly truths. And she’ll learn that once they are uncovered, they can never again be buried.
Gothic fantasy has never let me down before, and as if that's not enough reason, The Beautiful and the Cursed has gargoyles. Gargoyles. So damn original. Not to mention that pretty cover (if you can't tell by my blog, I love pink).

  1. This sounds fantastic! I've been a little bit hesitant as I read something about a love triangle in a review, but I'm still hoping this will be good. And yes, the cover is amazing. :)

  2. Ah yes, I can't wait for this too! Mostly because of the gargoyles. And that cover. Great pick!
