[Waiting On Wednesday: Prisoner of Night and Fog]

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...

"Prisoner of Night and Fog"
Author: Anne Blankman
Release Date: April 22nd, 2014

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary:

Obey. Smile when Hitler comes closer. And never, never question him.

These are the three rules in seventeen-year-old Nazi Gretchen Müller's life. They've kept her safe since Papa died, protecting old family friend Adolf Hitler during a street fight years ago. Until the night in 1931 when Gretchen meets a young, fearless Jewish reporter she's supposed to despise. But she can't stop herself from listening to his story -- that her father, the adored martyr, was actually murdered. Together, Gretchen and the reporter vow to do whatever it takes to uncover the truth. Even if it means breaking all of Hitler's rules. Especially the most important one of all: don't fall in love with the enemy...

I actually just snagged an eARC of this one and I couldn't be more excited.  I've been waiting for a book from the flip side of Nazi Germany and it's finally here.  I have a feeling that the conflict inside on Gretchen is going to be huge and I'm guessing that this one isn't going to have much of a happy ending.  

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

I saw this on Edelweiss and it sounds really interesting. It's not something that I normally read, but I may end up trying it. Thanks for sharing.

I haven't read anything like it before, so excited to read it though, it'll be a challenging on for me. Also, I keep seeing "Frog" I don't think the green helps either... Great pick! :)

This sounds so good I hope it's as good and I expect it to be! Any story in the times of Hitler just intrigues me I find it kind of fascinating in a morbid kind of way you know. Like I can't believe it even happened type of fascination.
