Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger’s most anticipated books.
This week, my pick is Princess of the Silver Woods (Princess #3) by Jessica Day George
“When Petunia, the youngest of King Gregor’s twelve dancing daughters, is invited to visit an elderly friend in the neighboring country of Westfalin, she welcomes the change of scenery. But in order to reach Westfalin, Petunia must pass through a forest where strange two-legged wolves are rumored to exist. Wolves intent on redistributing the wealth of the noble citizens who have entered their territory. But the bandit-wolves prove more rakishly handsome than truly dangerous, and it’s not until Petunia reaches her destination that she realizes the kindly grandmother she has been summoned to visit is really an enemy bent on restoring an age-old curse. The stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood get a twist as Petunia and her many sisters take on bandits, grannies, and the new King Under Stone to end their family curse once and for all.”
Why I Can’t Wait:
I love fairy tales, and that’s the reason why I read all kinds of of fairy tale retellings. This book is the final installment of the Princess trilogy and I can’t wait to read the story of Petunia. She belongs to the twelve dancing princesses in the first book, but this story is with a red riding hood and robin hood twist. I loved the first book and I’m going to read the second book soon, maybe this weekend. And I just love happy endings! ♥♥♥
