“Waiting On” Wednesday is a meme created at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we can’t wait to read.
This week I’m excited about Showtime by Chloe Kayne.
Here’s the summary, taken from Goodreads:
The grandeur of the traveling circus is at its peak in the early 1920s when fifteen-year-old Laila Vilonia is searching for an escape from her bleak future. Behind the gates of the legendary Marvelle Circus, she is thrust into a mysterious world she never knew existed—a paradise populated with outcasts. It’s in this glamorous new home that Laila sparks a controversial romance with notorious Sideshow performer, The Disappearing Man, and learns just how dangerous her new life can be.
Touring the picturesque eastern coast of America, Laila’s immersed in friendship, vaudeville, festivals, sequins, and serial killers. But behind the curtain, a sadistic plan is brewing that will crack the very foundation upon which she’s become so dependent.
That stark cover plus a traveling circus and atypical romance? Count me in.
This title is released on August 1, 2012.
