Waiting on Wednesday, #32



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.
Here's my selection for this week... 

Towering by Alex Flinn
Publication Date: May 14, 2013
Publisher: Harper Teen
At first, I merely saw his face, his hands on the window ledge. Then, his whole body as he swung himself through the window. Only I could not see what he swung on.

Until, one day, I told my dream self to look down. And it was then that I saw. He had climbed on a rope. I knew without asking that the rope had been one of my own tying.


Rachel is trapped in a tower, held hostage by a woman she’s always called Mama. Her golden hair is growing rapidly, and to pass the time, she watches the snow fall and sings songs from her childhood, hoping someone, anyone, will hear her.

Wyatt needs time to reflect or, better yet, forget about what happened to his best friend, Tyler. That’s why he’s been shipped off to the Adirondacks in the dead of winter to live with the oldest lady in town. Either that, or no one he knows ever wants to see him again.
Dani disappeared seventeen years ago without a trace, but she left behind a journal that’s never been read, not even by her overbearing mother…until now.

It's no secret, I'm a fan of fairy tales. I love my fantasy and the happily-ever-afters that come at the end of the story. Whenever I find a re-telling, I'm probably one of the first to jump on board, so when I came across another Rapunzel story, yes you guessed it... I quickly added it to my TBR.  I've had the opportunity to read A Kiss in Time and Beastly by Alex Flinn, so I know what to expect with this writer. She's going to make it exciting, mysterious and a ton of fun, so I'm definitely looking forward to reading this next adventure.

Sooo, what book are you waiting on???

  1. Beastly was pretty good but I haven't read anything else by this author yet. Rapunzel is one of my favorites though so I'm sure I'd like this retelling!

  2. I read Beastly and thought it was a pretty cute read and I loved the Disney movie Tangled. I thought it was so cute. I have my fingers crossed for this one :) Good pick!

  14. I adore fairy-tale retellings too! Which makes me so sad that I have yet to start on Alex Flinn's books! This one sounds so good! Is it a series? or are they stand-alones? I'm going to have to figure it out and try to get to reading on these really soon :)
