[Waiting On Wednesday #3: Marie Antoinette Serial Killer]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Marie Antoinette Serial Killer"
Author: Katie Alender
Release Date: October 2013


Colette Iselin is excited to go to Paris on a class trip. She’ll get to soak up the beauty and culture, and maybe even learn something about her family’s French roots.

But a series of gruesome murders are taking place across the city, putting everyone on edge. And as she tours museums and palaces, Colette keeps seeing a strange vision: a pale woman in a ball gown and powdered wig, who looks suspiciously like Marie Antoinette.

Colette knows her popular, status-obsessed friends won’t believe her, so she seeks out the help of a charming French boy. Together, they uncover a shocking secret involving a dark, hidden history. When Colette realizes she herself may hold the key to the mystery, her own life is suddenly in danger . . .

Acclaimed author Katie Alender brings heart-stopping suspense to this story of revenge, betrayal, intrigue — and one killer queen.

What's not to potentially love about this book?  It's sounds terribly amazing.  As in it sounds possibly as terrible as it sounds amazing!  It's sure to be super campy from the name, to the cover to the summery.  Basically, I can't wait to get my hands on this one!

What are you waiting for this week?  I wanna know!

There's absolutely nothing wrong with a campy novel and this one certainly sounds campy in the delicious "could be horrible but is actually wonderful" sort of way. Thank you for sharing!
