Waiting on Wednesday (30)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Summary from goodreads!


Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez 
October 18, 2011

Now is not the time for Carmen to fall in love. Two weeks before the most important violin competition of her career, she has bigger things to worry about—like growing out of that suffocating “child prodigy” label, and not disappointing her mother. But it isn’t just the wrong time. It’s the wrong guy. Jeremy is Carmen’s most talented rival, and according to her mother, he’s only interested in one thing: winning.

He isn’t the only one.

Carmen is so desperate to win she takes anti-anxiety drugs to control performance nerves. But what started a year ago as an easy fix is now a hungry addiction. Her mother insists now is not the time to quit, but Carmen is sick of not feeling anything on stage and even more sick of doing what she’s told.

When the darker side of the classical music industry and her mother's ambition collide, Carmen must choose between her career and her love for music.

Sounds intriguing. The mix of music, romance, and addiction sounds like an interesting one.

It sounds great - different from all the paranormal stuff that's come out lately.
