Falling For Hamlet by Michelle Ray
Falling for Hamlet retells the familiar Shakespearean tragedy from the point of view of a feisty, empowered Ophelia, who is neither suicidal nor anybody’s pushover. In a glittering world of celebrities, paparazzi, and reality TV, Ophelia navigates the minefield of teen life in a royal family gone crazy.

I love retellings of stories, and Hamlet just makes it better! In Hate List, Nick's favorite book was Hamlet, and I'm thinking if I read it, I'll know what they were actually talking about in the book :D

Another retelling of an old classic is Jane, a retelling of Jane Eyre.
Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, an iconic rock star on the brink of a huge comeback. Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer, and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance. But there's a mystery at Thornfield, and Jane's much-envied relationship with Nico is tested by a torturous secret from his past.

I guess this has become a double Waiting on Wednesday, but enjoy nonetheless!

What are you Waiting for: )?
