Mrs Poe by Lynn Cullen; and Golden Malicious by Sheila Connolly

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Let us know what new releases you are eagerly waiting for. Link your post to Breaking the Spine.

Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen is due out October 1, 2013, published by Gallery Books.
Quite a story: "a novel about a woman who becomes entangled in an affair with Edgar Allan Poe—at the same time she becomes the unwilling confidante of his much-younger wife." I can't imagine anyone being involved romantically with Poe. Wonder how scary that was?

Golden Malicious: An Orchard Mystery by Sheila Connolly, is also due out on October 1, 2013, published by Berkley. It's the seventh in the series. Orchard owner Meg Corey has to solve not only the mystery of a dead body in the forest preserve, but also a mysterious insect infestation that threatens local crops.

What books are you waiting for in October?

  2. Great picks! I haven't seen these around yet but they sound really good.

    My WOW:

  3. I'm not into poetry but I really love Raven so I'm curious about that book :) I haven't heard of either of these but they seem interesting. Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. What pretty covers! I hope these are as good as they sound.

  5. I reviewed Mrs. Poe and loved it. I hope that you enjoy it as much.

  6. Mrs. Poe book sounds interesting. I believe that Edgar Allan Poe was a very troubled person and his interactions with others seem likely to have troubled. I looked up the book, though a novel, it is supposedly based upon real events.

  7. I'm looking forward to reading Mrs. Poe!

  8. These sound good. I wonder about Poe's love life. In the movie, The Raven, they portrayed him as somewhat of a romantic. Some of his work is a bit romantic, dark, but "doomed love" kind of romantic.
    Happy reading!


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
