Waiting on Wednesday: The Winter Palace

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating! Want to participate? Post your own WOW entry on your blog, and leave your link at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm waiting on The Winter Palace (out January 2012)! If you remember, I went to Ukraine back in August. One of the places that I visited was Odessa. Odessa is a city on the Black Sea that was built during Catherine the Great's reign and she had a hand in the design. Odessa is a very European city compared to other cities in Ukraine. There are a couple statues of Catherine the Great throughout the city. She seems pretty fascinating! I'm so excited for this book!

What book are you waiting for?

***Note: Don't forget to enter the two current giveaways I have going on!***

  3. I'm hoping to soon break into the world of historical fiction! The covers are so pretty but I just haven't given this genre the time and attention is deserves. I sincerely love the history, though, so I ought to love the books, right??
