Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post hosted by Breaking the Spine @ breakingthespine.blogspot.com where we book bloggers talk about a book that isn’t released yet that we are excited about.
This week’s pick is…..
Genre: Young Adult Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: August 25th 2015
Summery from Goodreads
It’s a fairy-tale nightmare . . .
One girl is kept in a room where every day the only food she’s given is a poisoned apple. Another is kept in a room covered in needles — and if she pricks her finger, she’ll die. Then there are the brother and sister kept in a cell that keeps getting hotter and hotter. . .
A sinister kidnapper is on the loose in Kate’s world. She’s not involved until one day she heads to her grandmother’s house in the woods — and finds her grandmother has also been taken. Already an outcast, Kate can’t get any help from the villagers who hate her. Only Jack, another outsider, will listen to what’s happened.
Then a princess is taken, and suddenly the king is paying attention — even though the girl’s stepmother would rather he didn’t. It’s up to Kate and Jack to track down the victims before an ever after arrives that’s far from happy.
Why I am Excited
I am excited to see this really dark fairy tale mash-up. I love fairy tales and some of my favorite books are fairy tale retellings(The Lunar Chronicles and Dearest). Whoever wrote this has one creative imagination to reimagine Snow White and Sleeping Beauty the way they are in the summery. That cover fits the summery to a tee and I love seeing that as sometimes covers are misleading. This one sure isn’t. A fairy tale nightmare is right. I wonder if the Jack in the summery is Jack and the Bean Stock and I think Kate is Little Red Riding Hood. Why is this coming out in August and why didn’t I know about it sooner or maybe wish I had heard about closer to release date as now I suffer longer.
What are you Excited about this week?
