"Waiting On" Wednesday: Venom

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by breaking the spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Venom (Secrets of the Eternal Rose #1)
by Fiona Paul
Expected Publication:  October 30th 2012 by Philomel
432 pages

From Goodreads:  Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancĂ©, she has everything a girl could desire. Yet ever since her parents’ death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape.

When Cass stumbles upon a murdered woman—practically in her own backyard—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of courtesans, killers, and secret societies. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a mysterious artist with a mischievous grin... and a spectacular skill for trouble. Can Cassandra find the murderer, before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancĂ©, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?

Beauty, love, romance, and mystery weave together in a stunning novel that’s as seductive and surprising as the city of Venice itself.

My Thoughts:It's been a while since I've posted my last WoW and I'm really glad to finally be back on track.The reason why I chose this book?It's kinda obvious but I'm still gonna say it.It's all for the cover,people.I'm practically drooling all over it.But I know better than to set my expectations really high.I've gone all googly eyed on the covers of Underworld by Meg Cabot and The Selection by Kiera Cass and look how that turned out!For more info on what I'm talking about here,check out these links:
But in the case of The Selection,I feel that it's the author's actions that I found the most disturbing.Well,enough about that.We all know that I'm never gonna' learn from my experiences and even if this book turns out to be really crappy,I'm probably still gonna' buy it so that it would look good on my shelf.I know said before that I know better than to set my expectations really high but I know that I'm still gonna' do it 'cause I'm a girl who rarely learns from her mistakes and because I'm a teenager.(You know,hormones and stuff causing me to feel this way,I know weird but that's what my mom says all the time)But I've been seeing  four and five star reviews of this one popping out in goodreads,so let's hope that my idiocy does not go in vain. =)
