Waiting on Wednesday #2

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My WoW pick for this week is:

The Poison Diaries: Nightshade by Maryrose Wood

A dark, gothic tale of romance… and murder.
The latest book in the grippingly dark series, The Poison Diaries.

Our heroine, Jessamine, has lost her faith in the men she loved, and her innocence as well. She turns to the dark side and plots to kill her father, using his own poisons, before becoming an assassin, a poisoner for hire. Can she recover from her heartache and reunite with her true love, Weed? Find out in this thrilling story where poisons, darkness and horror are a part of everyday life, and love is the only cure.

Released in: September 2011

WoW because: I enjoyed The Poison Diaries - I liked the use of a real-life historical setting mixed with the paranormal element. From the synopsis for this sequel, it sounds like the story will fully embrace the gothic element and I'm intrigued by the idea of the heroine turning to the dark side.


  1. I haven't read The Poison Diaries, but I've been wanting to! They both look really good. Great choice!

  2. Wow, that's a nice name for a guy. Weed. I have the first book in the series but I haven't read it yet. Definitely looking forward to this one. Great pick! :)

    Check out my Waiting on Wednesday picks!

  3. I also liked The Poison Diaries and will be looking forward to reading this one too. Great pick

  4. I haven't read The Poison Diaries, but I saw it in my local library last week, maybe I'll pick it up soon.

  5. I didn't know there was going to be a sequel to TPD I will have to dig it out of my tbr pile before the second comes out.

  6. It sounds really great :D

    Happy reading!

    Here is my Wow

  7. Ii still haven't read The Poison Diaries but I've heard loads of great things! I like the covers to this series - great pick :)

  8. This one sounds great!

    My WoW,

  9. Now, that is what I call a great cover! This story sounds great. I'd never heard of it before, but I've read and am a fan of Alison Sinclair's Darkborn trilogy (which is more fantasy than gothic. But there is a poison taster, and that was one of the elements I loved). Great WoW, hope you had a great weekend!
