Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where bloggers like me can gush about what makes their hands all grabby.

Dancing with someone is an act of trust. Elegant and intimate; you're close enough to kiss, close enough to feel your partner's heartbeat. But for Vanessa, dance is deadly – and she must be very careful who she trusts . . .

Vanessa Adler attends an elite ballet school – the same one her older sister, Margaret, attended before she disappeared. Vanessa feels she can never live up to her sister's shining reputation. But Vanessa, with her glorious red hair and fair skin, has a kind of power when she dances – she loses herself in the music, breathes different air, and the world around her turns to flames . . .

Soon she attracts the attention of three men: gorgeous Zep, mysterious Josh, and the great, enigmatic choreographer Josef Zhalkovsky. When Josef asks Vanessa to dance the lead in the Firebird, she has little idea of the danger that lies ahead – and the burning forces about to be unleashed . . .

Only until up about two, three years ago, I had been dancing for nine years in a row.  I still love dance; there will always be a place for it in my heart, but I realized that books are more of my passion and that's how I ended up getting this blog up and running.  And you see those beautiful pointe shoes behind the title there? I wore those proudly and danced around the stage, pouring out my emotions into each dance. (sorry for the nostalgia)

Anyway, besides my emotional attachment to what seems to be a large part of this book, the idea for it sounds pretty cool.  And look at that cover! That makes me want to throw my pointe shoes back on and glide across the stage!  It's so beautiful.  I love the colors and it looks all creepy and haunting and stuff, like the synopsis suggests.

So what are you all waiting on this fine Wednesday?
