I know it's not (Waiting on/Wishing for) Wednesday yet, but I wanted to post about this book now. I'm tempted to start a new meme and call it Wish List Friday and I'll just post a book from my wish list (which is insanely long) every Friday (I'm sure there's probably a meme like that floating around somewhere, but whatever).
The Fool's Girl by Celia Reese
Release date (UK, not sure if the US one will be the same): April 5th 2010
Summary: Young and beautiful Violetta may be of royal blood, but her kingdom is in shambles when she arrives in London on a mysterious mission. Her journey has been long and her adventures many, but it is not until she meets the playwright William Shakespeare that she gets to tell the entire story from beginning to end. Violetta and her comic companion, Feste, have come in search of an ancient holy relic that the evil Malvolio has stolen from their kingdom.
