Waiting on Wednesday (6)

December 1, 2010

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It gives bloggers a chance to showcase books they’re waiting for and it’s a great way to find new books! So, head on over to Breaking the Spine to sign up or to check out other people’s posts!

Learning about new books is a lot like finding money on the street. It’s exciting and makes me feel all giddy inside. And one of the books that I got really excited about and added to my GoodReads list immediately is Rosie by Mariam Maarouf.

In life, nothing is the same as it seems. People create masks –identities – to hide who they really are –some for noble reasons, or nefarious ones, but only a tiny fraction because they must.

Alessandra and Damien, or Rosalie and Daniel, were once the Princess and Prince of La Pacifica until they were forced out of the beautiful island. Eight months flew by, and they finally began to settle in Alexandria, Egypt, when they found out that they didn’t leave their past behind them, and that they were both wanted urgently.

Dead. (synopsis taken from GoodReads) 

The book sounds amazing, doesn’t it? And the author? Well, Mariam Maarouf is one of the nicest people I’ve come across. 🙂 I hope you all add Rosie to your lists and I can’t wait to see what you all are waiting for!

    Huh. This sounds different. Is it a fantasy? I’d love to read a book set in Egypt.
    Great pick!
    My WOW

    Let’s just say that I had to read this post four to five times before I could comment.

    Thank you for your nice words, really. I know a lot of people who disagree with you, though, haha.

    I wish you all the best with your writing and everything else 🙂 And you’re one of the nicest people I’ve ever met, too, btw. For real.
