Waiting on Wednesday : The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is : The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  I loved Certain Dark Things so can’t wait to pick up more by this author.

Thebeautiful“Truly one of the most beautiful books I’ve read in a long time. This sweeping tale of love lost and found is told with old-world elegance and grace with just the right touch of magic.” —M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author

Antonina Beaulieu is in the glittering city of Loisail for her first Grand Season, where she will attend balls and mingle among high society in hopes of landing a suitable husband. But Antonina is telekinetic, and strange events in her past have made her the subject of malicious gossip and hardly a sought-after bride. Now, under the tutelage of her cousin’s wife, she is finally ready to shed the past and learn the proper ways of society.

Antonina, who prefers her family’s country home to the glamorous ballrooms of the wealthy, finds it increasingly difficult to conform to society’s ideals for women, especially when she falls under the spell of the dazzling telekinetic performer Hector Auvray. As their romance blossoms, and he teaches her how to hone and control her telekinetic gift, she can’t help but feel a marriage proposal is imminent.

Little does Antonina know that Hector and those closest to her are hiding a devastating secret that will crush her world and force her to confront who she really is and what she’s willing to sacrifice.

Due out in October

    I’m so anxious to read something else by this author after loving Certain Dark Things earlier this year. Can’t wait!

      Yes! We’re all so excited about this one – we could have our own blog tour at this rate!

    I’m dying for this one, too! Certain Dark Things was so fantastic and unexpected. Can’t wait to see what she does here.

    After Certain Dark Things, Moreno-Garcia went straight to the list of authors I would read sight unseen, and this one looks quite promising. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      It sounds very different – but like you said ‘sight unseen’.

    This sounds a really great read, Lyn – thank you for sharing.

    I got approved for this one last week! I really shouldn’t be requesting any more eARCs from NG, so I guess this was my only “moment of weakness” but who can blame me!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Nobody could blame you! That’s what NG is for – requesting eARCs. I got approved for this one too and I was so happy I danced a little jig. Can’t wait for this. Happy days.
