Waiting on Wednesday - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place to showcase a book we’re really looking forward to with bated breath! A new release in our favorite series, an exciting new title from a favorite author…

 Waiting on Wednesday #78

When I read the summary for Blackhearts and realized this is a loose re-telling of Blackbeard, my heart actually started beating harder, that’s how excited I was for this story! So that’s the main reason I’m waiting on it. Blackhearts is scheduled for release on February 9th, 2016 by Simon Pulse.

Blackhearts cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews


Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman

Blackbeard the pirate was known for striking fear in the hearts of the bravest of sailors. But once he was just a young man who dreamed of leaving his rigid life behind to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met the one girl who would change everything. This is their story.
Edward “Teach” Drummond, son of one of Bristol’s richest merchants, has just returned from a year-long journey on the high seas to find his life in shambles. Betrothed to a girl he doesn’t love and sick of the high society he was born into, Teach dreams only of returning to the vast ocean he’d begun to call home. There’s just one problem: convincing his father to let him leave and never come back.
Following her parents’ deaths, Anne Barrett is left penniless and soon to be homeless. Though she’s barely worked a day in her life, Anne is forced to take a job as a maid in the home of Master Drummond. Lonely days stretch into weeks, and Anne longs for escape. How will she ever realize her dream of sailing to Curaçao—where her mother was born—when she’s stuck in England?
From the moment Teach and Anne meet, they set the world ablaze. Drawn to each other, they’re trapped by society and their own circumstances. Faced with an impossible choice, they must decide to chase their dreams and go, or follow their hearts and stay.

  1. I think this sounds pretty interesting too. I’ve heard the story is about his “land years” and doesn’t involve any pirate ships but it should be a good book anyway! Maybe there will be a sequel about when he becomes a pirate. Great pick!

  2. You know you just added yet another book to my beleaguered TBR pile, right? 😉 Blackhearts sounds fantastic, Lexxie. Thanks for finding it for me. 😀 **BIG HUGS**
