Waiting on Wednesday: Nameless

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

namelessTitle: Nameless by Lili St. Crow
Publisher: Razorbill
Publish Date: April 4, 2013
Genre: Paranormal

Goodreads Summary: A dark and eerie retelling of Snow White from Lili St. Crow, New York Times bestselling author of the Strange Angels series.

Sixteen-year-old Camille doesn’t remember her life before she was adopted by the powerful Vultusino family—the missing childhood years that left her scarred and silent. Now she lives a life of luxury, protected by the supernatural Mafia Vultusinos, specially Nico, her adopted brother.

But Cami knows that she is not really Family. She is a mortal with a past that lies buried in trauma. And it’s not until a mysterious boy approaches her and reveals scars of his own that Cami begins to uncover the secrets of her past . . . to find out where she comes from and what danger she now finds herself in.

Why am I waiting on Nameless? I love fairytale retellings! Plus, a story based on Snow White combined with the mob and paranormal elements makes this book sound like a winner. I have never read anything by Lili St. Crow and while I have seen mixed reviews of her other books, I ready to check out her writing for myself. What books are you waiting on?
