Waiting on Wednesday Double Feature: Casanova's Secret Wife by Barbaara Lynn-Davis and Land of Storie: Worlds Collide by Chris Colfer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights exciting upcoming releases that we can't wait to be released!

I hope everyone's week is going well! Today I decided to feature two upcoming releases! The first, Casanova's Secret Wife, caught my eye because of how dark and intriguing it sounded. The second, World Collide by Chris Colfer, is the final book in his entertaining middle grade Land of Stories series! Honestly, it's not the best-written series I've ever read, but it has such a fun, imaginative cast of characters and world that I can't help but read each of these. 

This week's upcoming book spotlight is:
Casanova's Secret Wife by Barbara Lynn-Davis
Publication Date: July 25th, 2017

From Goodreads:

Casanova's Secret Wife
"Set in eighteenth-century Venice and based on an actual account by Giacomo Casanova—here is a lush tale of desire and risk, offering a little known portrait of the writer as a young man. 

Caterina Capreta was an innocent girl of fourteen when she caught the attention of the world’s most infamous chronicler of seduction: Giacomo Casanova. Intoxicated by a fierce love, she wed Casanova in secret. But his shocking betrayal inspired her to commit an act that would mark her forever . . .

Now twenty years later on the island of Murano, the woman in possession of Caterina’s most devastating secret has appeared with a request she cannot refuse: to take in a noble-born girl whose scandalous love affair resembles her own. But the girl’s presence stirs up unwelcome memories of Caterina’s turbulent past. Tested like never before, she reveals the story of the man she will never forget . . .

Bringing to life a fascinating chapter in the history of Venice, Casanova’s Secret Wife is a tour de force that charts one woman’s journey through love and loss to redemption."
