Waiting on Wednesday: The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie Berry

"Waiting on" Wednesday was created by Jill of Breaking the Spine, and is a way for bloggers to share the upcoming books that they're longing for. This week I'm waiting on...

The Amaranth Enchantment
by Julie Berry
Released March 3rd, 2009

A delightful fairytale by a lyrical new voice.
When Lucinda Chapdelaine was a small child, her parents left for the royal ball and never returned. Ever since, Lucinda has been stuck in perpetual servitude at her evil aunt’s jewelry store. Then, on the very same day, a mysterious visitor and an even more bizarre piece of jewelry both enter the shop, setting in motion a string of twists and turns that will forever alter Lucinda’s path. In this magical story filled with delightful surprises, Lucinda will dance at the royal ball, fall under the Amaranth Witch’s spell, avenge her parents’ death, and maybe—just maybe—capture the heart of a prince.

Why I'm waiting:
The storyline looks interesting, although somewhat cliché, and I rather like the cover. But for some reason I'm expecting this to be a lot like the Study series--maybe in part because of the dark-haired young woman with an exotic flower--which isn't a bad thing if it's as good as Poison Study.


  1. Did you like the book, I would like to hear rough criticism, because this was the book i was thinking about reading.
    THank you for reviewing on it.

  2. Sorry to keep commenting, but have you ever read
    "The Reluctant Heiress"

  3. ...They stole my title. *has a novel in the rough-idea-with-lots-of-scribbled-notes stage called "The Amaranth"*

  4. BOstan - No, I haven't read this book. It hasn't come out yet. "Waiting on Wednesday" is a feature so that people can share the books they're waiting for to be released.

    Chelsea - Poor you! :-(
