The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLemore 

Publication Date: September 15th 2015

Goodreads Summary
For twenty years, the Palomas and the Corbeaus have been rivals and enemies, locked in an escalating feud for over a generation. Both families make their living as traveling performers in competing shows—the Palomas swimming in mermaid exhibitions, the Corbeaus, former tightrope walkers, performing in the tallest trees they can find.

Lace Paloma may be new to her family’s show, but she knows as well as anyone that the Corbeaus are pure magia negra, black magic from the devil himself. Simply touching one could mean death, and she’s been taught from birth to keep away. But when disaster strikes the small town where both families are performing, it’s a Corbeau boy, Cluck, who saves Lace’s life. And his touch immerses her in the world of the Corbeaus, where falling for him could turn his own family against him, and one misstep can be just as dangerous on the ground as it is in the trees.

A long standing feud between families, two people falling in love but destined to be apart. All of this screams Romeo and Juliet. Add in a touch of magical realism into the story and you have one intense reading experience. The book summary drew me in to this book and I am so ready to get my hands on this book.

What’s your most anticipated book?
