Waiting on Wednesday ~ Stain

January 9, 2019 Misc. 10

BMR,WaitWednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Now called Can’t Wait Wednesday hosted by Wishful Endings. It’s where we display a book that we can’t wait to read because it sounds so good. 🙂

A high-fantasy gothic fairytale inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea.

Once upon a nightmare, her fairy tale begins…

After Lyra—a princess incapable of speech or sound—is cast out of her kingdom of daylight by her wicked aunt, a witch saves her life, steals her memories, and raises her in an enchanted forest … disguised as a boy known only as Stain. Meanwhile, in Lyra’s rival kingdom, the prince of thorns and night is dying, and the only way for him to break his curse is to wed the princess of daylight, for she is his true equal. As Lyra rediscovers her identity, an impostor princess prepares to steal her betrothed prince and her crown. To win back her kingdom, save the prince, and make peace with the land of the night, Lyra must be loud enough to be heard without a voice, and strong enough to pass a series of tests—ultimately proving she’s everything a traditional princess is not.

So I wasn’t a fan of this author’s Wonderland retelling but then I am not a fan of Wonderland so I thought I would give this one a try because I haven’t seen a Princess and the Pea retelling before. 🙂

Comes out January 15th from Abram/Amulet books

    I think the Princess and the Pea take will be really refreshing. I’ve not read any retelling of that nature before. And I TOTALLY understand the Wonderland thing. Although I will admit wonderland retellings work better for me than Wonderland itself did. I like this cover but for some reason it makes me cold. Maybe it’s the frosted muted tones.

      I know a lot of people liked them and I read the first one but didn’t like it much, but I think she is talented so hoping to like this one. 🙂
