Roseblood | Waiting on Wednesday [#31]

Waiting on Wednesday

Hey guys!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.

So here’s what I’m waiting on this week!


Author: A.G. Howard
Series: N/A
Genre: YA, Retellings
Publisher: Amulet Books
Publication Date: January 10th 2017


Rose BloodIn this modern day spin on Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. Hoping creative direction will help her, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera.

At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn—an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself, but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks. As the two discover an otherworldly connection and a soul-deep romance blossoms, Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light and he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known.

Why I’m Waiting

I absolutely loved Howard’s other retellings of Alice in Wonderland. She knows how to make things dark and twisted. Which is perfect for a retelling of Phantom of the Opera! So I cannot wait to dive into this one!

P.S. A.G. Howard is the author of the Splintered Series!

What has you guys waiting this week? Let me know down below!

Until next time,

  1. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the author and this book. It’s been added to my TBR. I was intrigued by the mention of Phantom of the Opera.

  2. A Phantom of the Opera retelling? Sign me up!? I love Phantom of the Opera so that is an automatic plus for me. I can’t say I’ve read Howard’s other books but I’m a fan of all things dark and twisted so I’ll have to give them a shot. 😛
