Waiting on Wednesday (#13)

Waiting on Wednesday is about sharing a book every week you cannot wait to be published. This week, I'm waiting on

❄ Princess of Thorns 
by Stacey Jay

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Retelling, Fairy Tales

Pages: 288

Expected Publication: December 9, 2014

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Description from Goodreads:

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?

The most salient trend among YA books this year seems to be retellings, most likely due to the huge success of Lunar Chornicles. Not that I'm complaining, I'm really looking forward to these retellings!


  1. Haha, right? It does, seeing them everywhere lately (not that I'm complaining either) and I did love Juliet Immortal, so can't wait for this one! :)

    1. I haven't read Juliet Immortal, I need to check it out. :) Thanks for visiting!

  2. I really like re-tellings, too! So I'll have to add this to my list ;)

    1. You should, it seems like a really good retelling. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. OH MAN. I am now waiting right along with you! I love me a fairy tale retelling (who doesn't?), and throw in the girl-disguised-as-boy bit and yeah. I'm HOOKED. Looooove your pick!

    1. I know right!! This sounds so amazing that I have no idea how can I wait until December! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  4. Yes! I'm super excited for Princess of Thorns! I absolutely adored Stacey Jay's debut 'Of Beast and Beauty', but this one sounds so much more amazing!!
    Great pick! :D

    1. I still have to read Of Beast and Beauty even though I have a copy of it - I'm glad you liked it, though! Thanks for stopping by!


You can't see me, but I'm totally doing my happy dance as I read your comment!
