Waiting on Wednesday: The Poison Diaries


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking  the Spine. The idea behind this meme is to highlight up and coming releases that we just can't wait to read. As a newbie blogger (on the blogger.com platform at least), this is my first meme (of hopefully many others) that I'll be participating in.

Anyway, I digress. Here's my choice of the week.

The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood with The Duchess of Northumberland

On sale date:
20 July 2010


In the right dose, everything is a poison. Even love . . .
Jessamine Luxton has lived all her sixteen years in an isolated cottage near Alnwick Castle, with little company apart from the plants in her garden. 

Her father, Thomas, a feared and respected apothecary, has taught her much about the incredible powers of plants: that even the most innocent-looking weed can cure -- or kill.

When Jessamine begins to fall in love with a mysterious boy who claims to communicate with plants, she is drawn into the dangerous world of the poison garden in a way she never could have imagined . . .

How fabulous does this book sound? And look at that gorgeous cover. I absolutely cannot wait for this book to be released.
