Waiting on Wednesday: Mirrored
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s were we display a book that we can’t wait to read because it sounds so good. 🙂
Any fairy tale retelling fans out there then this pick is for you. I have enjoyed some of Alex Finn’s books and this one sounds really good. I am sort of hit and miss with fairy tale retellings but I do like to give them a try. 🙂 You got a bit of a wait though cause it don’t come out until September 15th!!
Alex Flinn is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beastly, and her latest fairy-tale retelling takes on the tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Mirrored is told in three viewpoints—Violet, the stepmother as a teen, coming into her powers and using them to make herself beautiful and defeat her rival; Celine, the Snow White character; and Goose, a friend of Celine’s who must come to her rescue and prove that bravery is more important than height. “I wrote the book because beauty, our attitudes and reactions to it, are among my favorite subjects,” says Flinn. “I wanted to write about one woman who would do anything to be the most beautiful and another who sees it as a burden.”
So what are you waiting on?
