In case you don’t already know about it and love it, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It is where you feature an upcoming release that you are excited about. I’m very excited to participate this week because the Top Ten Tuesday topic this week was fairy tale retellings. You may notice that I did not participate in that particular Top Ten Topic this week and there’s a very good reason for that…I haven’t read any fairy tale retellings! GASP! I know, it’s shocking but that led me to remember that I am currently eagerly waiting for a book to be released and it’s a fairy tale retelling! It will be my first one and I’m hoping that it plunges me into the wonderful world of fairy tale retellings. So without further delay here’s my pick:
Author: Alex Flinn
Expected Publication Date: September 15, 2015
Summary as seen on Amazon :
Celine’s life is the stuff fairy tales are made of. She’s beautiful, talented, and brave. Unfortunately, her tale comes complete with a wicked stepmother! When Violet steps into Celine’s life, everything changes and weird things begin to happen to her—bizarre accidents, strange illnesses, and rabid animal attacks. Celine doesn’t feel safe anywhere. It’s almost as if some hateful witch is out to get her.
And there is. Violet has been waiting all her life to have Celine’s father to herself. Getting rid of his gorgeous daughter is child’s play for a witch as powerful as she is. Happy-ever-after isn’t enough for Violet. She wants to be the fairest of them all, and Celine is in the way . . . but not for long.
Forced to take refuge with her friend Goose and his family, Celine gives up everything she loves and goes deep undercover. But will it be enough to fool Violet, or will Celine’s fate be decided by a reflection in a magic mirror? And where do you find Prince Charming in Miami anyway?
Mirrored is a modern retelling of Snow White—told from the points of view of Violet, Celine, and Goose—with all the magic and mystery readers will love.
Maybe it’s because I’ve always loved Snow White or maybe it was the beautiful cover that drew me in but once I read the blurb I knew that I would read this book! There you have my Waiting on Wednesday pick! Let me know what book your waiting on or feel free to leave a comment with a link to your posts. I love reading other peoples picks, not that my TBR list needs to be any longer. Happy Reading!
