waiting on wednesday (75)

Today I’m participating in "Waiting On" Wednesday, a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to spotlight upcoming book releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Can you have too many fairy tale retellings?  RHETORICAL QUESTION, do not pass go, do not collect $200.  The answer is always NO.  At least in my case it is.  I get a fizzy feeling whenever I think of reading another fairy tale.  Maybe that will fade someday.  Well, doubtful.  It hasn't yet, and we're 30 years in. So yeah, fairy tale retellings are my jam, and this one looks... amazing.  DAHHHH, I want it now!  But in all seriousness, it sounds twisted and awesome, and there's not a single love triangle in sight (love triangles get major negative points in Cecelia Bedelia-land).  Stacey Jay’s Princess of Thorns will be released on December 9, 2014 by Delacorte (Penguin Random House).  And I will buy it immediately. *grin*

princess of thorns by stacey jay book cover
Game of Thrones meets the Grimm's fairy tales in this twisted, fast-paced romantic fantasy-adventure about Sleeping Beauty's daughter, a warrior princess who must fight to reclaim her throne.

Though she looks like a mere mortal, Princess Aurora is a fairy blessed with enhanced strength, bravery, and mercy yet cursed to destroy the free will of any male who kisses her. Disguised as a boy, she enlists the help of the handsome but also cursed Prince Niklaas to fight legions of evil and free her brother from the ogre queen who stole Aurora's throne ten years ago.

Will Aurora triumph over evil and reach her brother before it's too late? Can Aurora and Niklaas break the curses that will otherwise forever keep them from finding their one true love?

What books are you waiting on?

I agree! You can never have too many fairy tale retellings. I'm really looking forward to this one too.
