Waiting on Wednesday #5: Roseblood by A.G. Howard

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This is my first time participating in this meme, but I've seen it across so may different blogs I just had to participate. To participate all you have to do is spotlight upcoming publications you're eagerly anticipating. Keep reading to see what I have chosen for this week.

If you guys did not know I am a huge fan of The Phantom of the Opera. I absolutely love the story, the musical, the characters. I mean everything about it is amazing. So when I found out that this book is a Phantom of the Opera re-telling of sorts I definitely had to jump on the bandwagon. I hope it is as good as it seems. I know that A.G. Howard also wrote an Alice in Wonderland retelling and that seems to have pretty decent reviews so I'm hoping this will go in the same direction! 

In 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.


  1. I've been looking forward to Roseblood so much! I wasn't a huge fan of Howard's other books, but this one is just so promising I think it'll be wonderful. Hope you enjoy it when it's out! :)

  2. I haven't read anything by A.G. Howard either, so hopefully this is well done! Many of my friends love her Alice in Wonderland retelling, so I have high hopes. The synopsis seems to have a good mix of originality and the traditional story.

    Here is my WoW!

    Have a good rest of your week!

  3. Man, I'll be glad when this one finally comes out because it seems like I've been waiting on it forever. I'm so excited to give this book a chance!
