What I'm Waiting On...

Title: Romancing the Dark in the City of Light
Author: Ann Jacobus
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books
Publication Date: October 6, 2014
A troubled teen, living in Paris, is torn between two boys, one of whom encourages her to embrace life, while the other—dark, dangerous, and attractive—urges her to embrace her fatal flaws.

Haunting and beautifully written, with a sharp and distinctive voice that could belong only to this character, Romancing the Dark in the City of Light is an unforgettable young adult novel.

Summer Barnes just moved to Paris to repeat her senior year of high school. After being kicked out of four boarding schools, she has to get on track or she risks losing her hefty inheritance. Summer is convinced that meeting the right guy will solve everything. She meets two. Moony, a classmate, is recovering against all odds from a serious car accident, and he encourages Summer to embrace life despite how hard it can be to make it through even one day. But when Summer meets Kurt, a hot, mysterious older man who she just can't shake, he leads her through the creepy underbelly of the city-and way out of her depth.

When Summer's behavior manages to alienate everyone, even Moony, she's forced to decide if a life so difficult is worth living. With an ending that'll surprise even the most seasoned reader, Romancing the Dark in the City of Light is an unputdownable and utterly compelling novel.

Why I'm Waiting...

Romancing the Dark in the City of Light by Ann Jacobus is originally a book that caught my eye because it has a gorgeous cover! I won't lie about that. But when I looked at the synopsis on Goodreads, I realized that it's one of those books in many of my "go-to" categories. 

I love contemporary YA, and this definitely has it going on, but also, this book seems like it's going to deal with a lot of mental health issues, and I love to read those books.

I don't have to wait very long for this one because I am on the blog tour, but I won't be reading it until September. Be sure to drop by and read my review in October!
