Waiting on Wednesday {14}

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're anxiously awaiting.

Title: Honestly, Red Riding Hood Was Rotten!: The Story of Little Red Riding Hood Told by the Wolf
Author: Trisha Speed Shaskan
Publisher: Capstone
Pub Date: August 1, 2011

OF COURSE you think I did a horrible thing by eating Little Red Riding Hood and her granny. You don't know the other side of the story. Well, let me tell you...

I've put in a request for this on NetGalley. Even though it's a children's book it sounds fun and I bet I'll love reading to my 5 year old.

And while I was looking around on NG I ran across ...

Title: Ward Against Death
Melanie Card
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Genre: New Adult/Upper YA Fantasy
Release Date: August 2, 2011


Twenty-year-old Ward de’Ath expected this to be a simple job—bring a nobleman’s daughter back from the dead for fifteen minutes, let her family say good-bye, and launch his fledgling career as a necromancer. Goddess knows he can’t be a surgeon—the Quayestri already branded him a criminal for trying—so bringing people back from the dead it is.
But when Ward wakes the beautiful Celia Carlyle, he gets more than he bargained for. Insistent that she’s been murdered, Celia begs Ward to keep her alive and help her find justice. By the time she drags him out her bedroom window and into the sewers, Ward can’t bring himself to break his damned physician’s Oath and desert her.
However, nothing is as it seems—including Celia. One second, she’s treating Ward like sewage, the next she’s kissing him. And for a nobleman’s daughter, she sure has a lot of enemies. If he could just convince his heart to give up on the infuriating beauty, he might get out of this alive…


  1. Both of your choices sounds great. I love how there are so many fairy tales being revisited right now. I hope you enjoy both :)

    My WoW choice is just around the corner :)

  2. I don't blame you - the Red Riding Hood one looks so cute!

    Here's my WOW for this week.
