Welcome to Waiting On Wednesday here at
This is a feature created by Jill at Breaking The Spine where we share some books we are anxiously awaiting.
Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas
Expected publication: September 15th 2015 by HarperTeen
When the glass slipper just doesn’t fit… The tale of Cinderella has been retold countless times. But what you know is not the true story. Pin has no recollection of who she is or how she got to the Godmother’s fortress. She only knows that she is a Seamstress, working day in and out to make ball gowns fit for fairy tales. But she longs to forsake her backbreaking servitude and dares to escape with the brave young Shoemaker. Pin isn’t free for long before she’s captured again and forced to live the new life the Godmother chooses for her—a fairy tale story, complete with a charming prince—instead of finding her own happily ever after. Sarah Prineas’s bold fairy tale retelling is a dark and captivating world where swords are more fitting than slippers, young shoemakers are just as striking as princes, and a heroine is more than ready to rescue herself before the clock strikes midnight.
I love fairy tales. These retellings are my cup o' tea! This one sounds like a fabulous mish mash of all the things I love! Also, COVER LUSTING!! I am just a sucker for these and am reveling in the fact that there are so many out right now!
