Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.

This week I am waiting on Ash & Bramble by Sarah Prineas (September 15, 2015)

Summary From GoodReads

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.

Why I'm Waiting

I absolutely love fairy tale retellings.  My favorite is The Fairy Godmother by Mercedes Lackey, and this one seems like it's along the same lines, it's not so much about retelling the story, but more about the inner workings of the land forcing the stories to happen and the godmother's roles in making the stories happen.  I can't wait to read this one!


  1. Totally a sucker for re-tellings. I love a good fairy tale book, but I did not know about this one so thanks for sharing I will keep a look out for it now. Nice WOW!
