I’ve seen Waiting on Wednesdays for a long time but never joined in because most of the times narrowing down to one book seemed too hard. But I’ve decided that this is a great way to show off some books I’m really excited for that aren’t coming out this month. So in addition to my monthly anticipated releases I will also do a weekly post talking about a book that is not coming out in that month that I am dying to have already. From my understand Waiting on Wednesday was started by Breaking the Spine
This week’s spotlight book should be no surprise because pretty much everyone is obsessed with the spectacular phenomenon that is Hamilton. So it’s pretty obvious to say I am dying to read this book and can’t wait for it to come out.

1777. Albany, New York.
As battle cries of the American Revolution echo in the distance, servants flutter about preparing for one of New York society’s biggest events: the Schuylers’ grand ball. Descended from two of the oldest and most distinguished bloodlines in New York, the Schuylers are proud to be one of their fledgling country’s founding families, and even prouder still of their three daughters—Angelica, with her razor-sharp wit; Peggy, with her dazzling looks; and Eliza, whose beauty and charm rival that of both her sisters, though she’d rather be aiding the colonists’ cause than dressing up for some silly ball.
Still, she can barely contain her excitement when she hears of the arrival of one Alexander Hamilton, a mysterious, rakish young colonel and General George Washington’s right-hand man. Though Alex has arrived as the bearer of bad news for the Schuylers, he can’t believe his luck—as an orphan, and a bastard one at that—to be in such esteemed company. And when Alex and Eliza meet that fateful night, so begins an epic love story that would forever change the course of American history.
In the pages of Alex and Eliza, #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz brings to life the romance of young Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schuyler.
