Waiting on Wednesday 04/06/2014

“Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.

What really happened after the clock struck midnight?

Jane Montjoy is tired of being a lady. She's tired of pretending to live up to the standards of her mother's noble family-especially now that the family's wealth is gone and their stately mansion has fallen to ruin. It's hard enough that she must tend to the animals and find a way to feed her mother and her little sister each day. Jane's burden only gets worse after her mother returns from a trip to town with a new stepfather and stepsister in tow. Despite the family's struggle to prepare for the long winter ahead, Jane's stepfather remains determined to give his beautiful but spoiled child her every desire.

When her stepfather suddenly dies, leaving nothing but debts and a bereaved daughter behind, it seems to Jane that her family is destined for eternal unhappiness. But a mysterious boy from the woods and an invitation to a royal ball are certain to change her fate...

From the handsome prince to the evil stepsister, nothing is quite as it seems in Tracy Barrett's stunning retelling of the classic Cinderella tale.

Release Date: June 24th 2014

I love fairytale retellings, and this should be an interesting new take on a story we've all heard a million times. Fingers crossed that it'll live up to what it promises to be!

What are you waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I love fairytale retellings too! I saw this a while back on someone else's WOW and I have been looking forward to it since and lucky for me I received a earc from Netgalley. Thanks for sharing and lets hope we both enjoy it! :)

  2. Yes i cant wait for this one either! It sounds so good :)

    Here's my pick!

  3. This was one of my WOW's a little while ago. I think it sounds so good! I like that it's not from Cinderella's perspective and I'm hoping it will turn out to be a book I love. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  4. I love a good retelling :)
    My WOW

  5. I am definitely a fan of retellings, and even though Cinderella is a majorly popular fairy tale to base a retelling off of, this angle on the whole story is really intriguing and different. I want to read this one!

  6. Great pick! I've only read a few retellings but I did enjoy them a lot, so this one sounds pretty good.
