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.
My Pick this Week is………..
A Standalone Book in the Modern Fairytale Series
All books are standalone novels
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 15th 2015
Summery from Goodreads:
In this modern retelling of “Hansel and Gretel,” 13-year-old foster children, Holden and Griselda, escape from their abductor after three years of brutal captivity and try to cross the Shenandoah River on foot. Tragically, one of them makes it to safety but the other is left behind.
Ten years later, Griselda’s boyfriend drags her to a fight club grudge match where her world is turned upside down when she watches Holden step into the ring.
Though the connection between them is fierce, bitter regret, simmering rage and a cache of physical and emotional scars lie between them, just as dangerous as the whitewater of the Shenandoah.
Never Let You Go is a story of fear and hope, defeat and survival, and two people – once profoundly broken – who discover that love is the only thing that can make them whole again.
This is a standalone novel inspired by Hansel & Gretel. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to profanity, scenes of physical abuse and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. (Note: children are not sexually abused in this book.)
For June and July 2015, 25% of all gross royalties will be donated to the Elizabeth Smart Foundation.
Why I am Excited
I loved this author’s book Breaking Up with Barrett. I am excited to see she is writing a much darker story. Hansel and Gretel isn’t a fairy tale that is retold often and I love that the author picked such an unused fairy tale to retell but not one that is so unknown no one would know it. I am also loving that 25 percent of the royalties are going to charity. I love when author’s tell their story and give to a charity that has a connection to the theme of the novel.
What are you waiting on?
